85-3 dosing valve

Dosing precise to gram of pasty filling products into containers

Wide range of applications
The 85-3 dosing valve ensures, above all, one thing: product diversity. Because the gentle processing of products in the consistency of very fluid, pasty, inhomogeneous, chunky, fibrous, with large inserts or high liquid content is possible. Three different dosing piston versions further extend the product range.
Efficient dosing accurate to the gram
With a dosing capacity of 2,000 kg/h or up to 50 portions per minute, accurate-to-the-gram dosing into a wide variety of containers, such as tubs, buckets or trays, is guaranteed. The output speed can be adjusted and the “double stroke” function selected. The Handtmann vane cell feed system in the VF 800 vacuum filler and the gentle dosing process ensure both excellent product quality and weight accuracy.

Ergonomic with hygienic design
The new Handtmann 85-3 dosing valve is a flexible solution that can easily be integrated in day-to-day production. It is connected directly to the outlet of the vacuum filling machine, and its working height can be individually adapted to the operator, the filling table or a conveyor belt. The dosing valve features the latest hygienic design and all materials are FDA-compliant.
