[ROMEOVILLE, ILLINOIS, May 3, 2018] Rapak North America, a leading supplier of Bag-in-Box packaging and part of DS Smith Plastics, announced today the launch of the Autokap™ 1900 series liquid filling equipment for bulk containers ranging from 30 gallons up to 1000 liters. The Autokap 1900 liquid filling machine is ideal for filling hot and ambient temperature viscous products such as pulpy juice, sauces or purees with particulate as large as 5/8” in size.

The Autokap 1900 is equipped with a Micro Motion mass flowmeter that ensures precise fill weights during the fill process. Furthermore, the fill head raises and lowers the bag, allowing for efficient filling of the bag and surrounding container.

Recommended Bag-in-Box sizes include:

Options include:

  • Additional filling table for smaller Bag-in-Box bags (I.e. five gallons)
  • Additional pallet turntable to allow for four individual drums to be filled on one pallet

Designed for filling ‘construction-engineered’ bags with a 38mm fitment, Rapak’s Autokap 1900 can be modified to accommodate larger fitments. Rapak bags for bulk Bag-in-Box packaging include 30G, 55G and IBC in a variety of film structures.
