Aerosol Cans - Processing Solutions

Materials:Aerosol Cans

Featured Product:  - Held aerosol cans underwater

Problem:

Southwestern Packaging Company in St. Petersburg, FL and Cincinatti Aerosol Corppration, both in the USA, specialized in filling aerosol cans. Both experianced difficulties in testing the steel cans for leaks in their hot water bath tanks. In one case, cans would fall or float off an underwater belt conveyor. In the second case cans were placed in wire baskets for dipping into the bath. Production was slow.

Solution:

With Eriez' help, aerosol cans rode downhill into the bath, through it, and up and out at the other end, securely held on a magnetic conveyor. The heart of the conveying system was continuous sections of powerful permanent-magnet Eriez Magna-RailsĀ® installed under nonferrous belts. Even the smallest cans were easily handled. Production was greatly improved.
Featured Product:  - Magnetic Belt Conveyor ended can damage

Problem:

Boyle-Midway, a division of American Home Products Corporation (now Wyeth), had space, handling, can damage and belt maintenance problems on their aerosol can filling lines.

Solution:

An Eriez Magnetic Belt Conveyor system permitted elevation changes, warehouse wall penetrations and sharp turns in the conveying line. The company was able to save money by buying cans in pallet lots. Plant capacity increased to 15,000 cans per hour with a significant reduction in man-hours. They reported that economic improvement was spectacular.
