Few years ago Zilli & Bellini introduced on the market a new generation of piston filler (Plunger valve piston filler) with a better filling accuracy due to the new concept of the valve. The plunger piston filler for some applications is the nonplus ultra of the food technology also because it is possible to make a C.I.P. completely controlled by the PLC and without dismantle any part of the filler. The plunger piston filler C.I.P match the higher hygienic standards and minimize the maintenance time. The grate success of the plunger piston filler push Zilli & Bellini to go on in the way of the innovation in piston filler machines. The idea in the piston filler with standard rotary valve is to make a C.I.P. controlled by the PLC. With this upgrade it is possible to press the touch screen and a mechanical device take out the pistons from the cylinders. With this operation you can run an extremely efficient washings cycle in a very easy way; also the inspection of the seals is very easy and quick.
