Aerosol Handling


R+R have developed propellant fillers using compressed air and Nitrogen to provide clients with cleaner and cheaper methods of pressurising aerosols (compared to LPG)

The propellant fillers have the following specifications and benefits:

  • Gassing speeds from 150 to 350 CPM
  • Fully automated gassing system using PLC control and HMI interface or, if requested, a fully pneumatic controlled system
  • British built to UK standards
  • Can be manufactured in Stainless Steel (if required) to Food & Pharmaceutical Industry Standards
  • Major environmental benefits giving the opportunity to clients to present a more environmentally friendly image to its customer base.
  • Better machine and product safety levels and the reduction of expensive electrical EEx machine components.
  • Easily installed into existing production facilities.
  • Eliminates the need for Butane / Propane propellants, which in turn means:
  • – Reduced ‘Cost-Per-Can’: inexpensive (free) propellant
  • – Reduced installation cost: no need for ATEX compliance.
  • – Reduced disposal / recycle costs: no hazardous / flammable gasses present

The design of our gassing machine is based upon using current technology such as PLC / HMI systems and pneumatics equipment from reputable manufacturers.
This makes it easier to maintain by the clients in-house engineers when carrying out Annual Planned Maintenance Programs.

We are able to offer desiccant dryer systems integrated into the machine design for aerosol can pressurisation at high speeds for the food industry.

Compressed Air has been tested successfully with the following range of products:

  • Air Fresheners
  • Furniture Polishes
  • Lubricants
  • “De-Icers”

Safety Compliance

All machines are CE marked and manufactured to comply to the following standards

  • Machine Directive 97/37/EC
  • Health and Safety at Works Act 1974
  • Pressure Equipment Legislation
  • Provision and Use of Work Equipment regulation (PUWER)

Complete Solutions

R+R are capable of handling turn-key solutions giving clients a `one stop shop` for procurement of a complete filling line.

Free Services

R+R are able to carry out tests on aerosol cans for new clients free of charge to demonstrate the suitability of using compressed air or any other customer specified gas on their products at temperatures of -20 to +50 deg C.

Important Statistics

UK aerosol fillings increased by 3.3 per cent over the previous year, according to the latest annual figures from BAMA (British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association).

The UK aerosol filling machines industry is an important one, making a significant contribution to the economy of this country.

In fact the UK aerosol sector is the second largest in the world, in terms of the number of aerosols filled.

In 2010 there was 1275 million aerosol cans produced.

75% of local authorities in the UK recycle empty aerosols through their can banks or kerbside collection schemes, and this number is increasing week on week.Each year, the UK uses around 600 million aerosols. On average that’s 10 cans per person or 27 cans per household.Aerosols account for 4% of the metals packaging stream. We estimate that there are about 25,000 tonnes of tin-plated steel and 4,500 tonnes of high grade aluminium available from recycling aerosol in the UK.
