Specifications include, but are not limited to:New filler machine will be supplied by another vendor and will be rigged into place by others.New filler will operate at a maximum of 158 eight ounce pouches per minute or a little under 10 gallons per minute.New filler will be cleaned using the same CIP circuit as will clean the lines feeding the new filler (this is an existing CIP circuit that cleans the pasteurized storage tank along with transfer pump and lines to the existing Bag-n-Box filler).CIP solutions will feed into the product feed line to the filler as well as a separate CIP line into the filler.The filler is assumed to be in full control of all valves on the filler to ensure cleaning. The filler will have the ability toaccept the flow rate from the existing cleaning circuit (estimated at 80 GPM needed to clean the filler) and as such no additional CIP circuits.The existing Bag-n-Box filler will remain in place and new piping must be installed to be able to continue to supply product to this existing filler and to be able to be cleaned.Bag-n- Box filler will not be used frequently and vendor must install piping with swing connections to permit operation for either the new pouch filler OR the existing Bag-N-Box filler but not both fillers at the same time, nor will both fillers be cleaned at the same time.No automated valves are to be added to process and no modifications to the existing controls system should be necessary.The proposed new filler is identified as a Liquid-Box model IS- 7 and will control the product feed into the filler bowl using controls and devices internal to the filler.The existing pasteurized feed pump is controlled by VFD and external on/off switch and the pump speed can be manually set from existing controls system operator interface. No changes to the controls system should be needed and the existing pasteurized product pump has more than adequate capacity to feed the proposed new filler.
