Understanding Tube Fillers: Key Components and Functionality

A tube filler comprises several critical components:

  • Tube Feeding Device: Orients and sends tubes to the filling station.
  • Filling Station: Pumps the product into the tube using a piston or peristaltic pump.
  • Sealing Station: Folds, crimps, or heat-seals the tube.
  • Ejection Unit: Discharges filled and sealed tubes from the machine.

This precise orchestration ensures efficiency and product quality.
