Bottle filling – Tolomatic

Manufacturer: Tolomatic
Product used: ERD rod cylinder

Application description:

Fill four bottles simultaneously from the bottom up at various fill rates.


A manufacturer of bottle filling equipment needed bottles to be filled at controlled rates and was currently employing a pneumatic actuator solution. The customer wanted to eliminate the hour change-over time the pneumatic actuators required to accommodate the various bottle heights introduced on the line. The actuators were also subjected to a wash down environment.


An ERD15 stainless steel rod-style actuator with the IP67 option was chosen for this application to withstand the frequent wash down requirements. Tolomatic provided a custom stroke longer than the standard cataloged offering with fast delivery. The customer was also provided a special motor mount through Tolomatic’s Your Motor Here program to retrofit their motor of choice at no additional charge.

Customer benefit:

  • Better fill control;
  • Reduced change-over time;
  • Efficient economical electric solution;
