Filling, capping and packaging solutions within the dairy sector must be capable of high speed, continuous operation, often in wet, humid environments which are subject to regular wash down and CIP regimes.

And because milk is a sensitive product, it must be handled very precisely. Icon Equipment International has the expertise to meet these challenges.

Icon Equipment International has over 25 years experience within the dairy sector, with our filling systems, for example, used to fill yoghurt tubs at relatively low speeds, through to extremely high speed fresh milk facilities. All of our equipment is manufactured from stainless steel and is easily washed down. Our fillers have simple CIP cleaning requirements, with some models able to operate for over 24 hours between CIP cycles.
