JBT level fillers, weight fillers, Unifillers, can closers and cappers have a solid record for long-running performance, sometimes stretching back over decades, covering both new builds and second-hand machines. But even the best-performing equipment requires updating and upgrading after years of service, and this is where JBT Retrofit Kits come in, offering a solution that can bring filler and closer machines into the 21st century.
“We have a lot of these machines in the field that are 20-30 years’ old and are still running quite well,” explains JBT’s Ben Verbeeck. “However, after such a length of time, improvements are often needed in terms of both hygiene and filling accuracy, and we have developed solutions for that in the form of different kits.”
JBT Retrofit kits are not only capable of bringing hygiene to 2020 levels, but they can also boost filling accuracy, making sure any wastage is kept to a bare minimum. They can further improve product handling, upgrade machine hygiene and replacing obsolete OEM components, updating software programs and improving maintenance in the process. “These are solutions for machines that are still operating well, but it’s all about bringing them into the 21st century,” says Verbeeck.
JBT Retrofit Kits are part of a long-term commitment to customers by ensuring that even well-seasoned equipment receives the high quality maintenance and machine upgrades that enable companies to get the most value out of solutions and realize more operational savings.
The kits offer tailored original component packages that deliver cost-effective, quality results, including effective installation, commissioning and operator training by JBT’s skilled service teams to help maximize the return on investment.
