ACI Systems – An Anderson Process Brand

ACI Fluid Fill Systems have been used worldwide to dispense fluids at flow rates that range from mils per minute to gallons per minute. We offer a variety of services such as assembly line fill, vapor recovery, chiller and heat exchanger systems, control panel design and build, portable pump systems, chemical blending systems, pharmaceutical systems and food grade systems. There are few companies in the industry that have the expertise to design automation of liquid handling systems, especially for hazardous materials.

 

Industries Served

Automotive

Large Trucks/Military

Off-Highway Productivity Vehicles

Agricultural Vehicles

Recreational Vehicles/Small Engines

Non-Standard Vehicles

 

 

What It Is

A system that dispenses various fluids at flow rates that range from ounces per minute to gallons per minute.

What It Does

Uses a semi-automated system to dispense hazardous and non-hazardous liquids in small but precise amounts in order to test a large range of vehicles during the manufacturing process.

Fluids We Handle

Fluids traditionally handled on an automotive assembly line, including but not limited to:

Axle

Brake

Diesel

Diesel Exhaust Fluid

Engine Oil

Gasoline

Grease

Lubricant

Transmission

Windshield Washer

 

Lead Time and Lifespan

  • Our engineers will sit down with your team and discuss your specific needs.
  • Our in-house manufacturing and expertise mean we can meet even the most aggressive timelines.
  • Our team looks at your operation’s desired throughput and operating conditions to achieve optimal lifespan, while managing initial cost in a practical manner.

Customization

  • We can come to your facility to do an accurate, thorough health assessment and suggest your best options.
  • We offer on-site engineering, installation and configuration services as well.
  • Anderson Process’ hands-on, consultative approach and in-house manufacturing capabilities offer the ability to completely customize your Fluid Fill System.
  • Offer both semi-automatic and manually operated options.

Our Custom Fluid Fill Systems Give You More Control

  • We control every step of the process in-house, which allows us to meet even the most aggressive timelines without compromising our superior quality.
  • We can visit your plant to do an accurate and thorough health assessment to suggest the best options for your exact specifications to optimize your processes.
  • Our custom-made Fluid Fill Systems are made with high-quality components, which mean they can handle the daily grind and keep your production line running smoothly.

System Health Assessments

Our expert staff will provide an accurate and thorough health assessment of your current system.  This allows us to spot a problem before its too late and is the best way to ensure fluid fill systems are not the cause of line stoppage.  Due to changing technology, some parts may no longer be available for older models.

This allows us to offer you the best option moving forward:

  • A system upgrade for you to get the most out of your existing equipment.

or

  • A brand-new Fluid Fill System for maximized throughput.

 

Anderson Process has provided solutions for a wide range of fluid fill applications the the automotive industry.  See how we have how we have improved customer processes using ACI Fluid Fill Systems below:

Gasoline Fill Systems

Gasoline Fill Systems

Problem: This passenger truck assembly line dealt with slower fill speeds and lower output (around 20 vehicles per hour) compared to the company’s other lines.

Solution: Anderson Process supplied a manual option that offered a precise fill speed to meet the company’s custom requirements.

Specifications:
Handling a hazardous, volatile fluid like gasoline, vehicles don’t want to accept it at higher fuel rates (faster than 10 gallons per minute). Our skids handle that volatility by controlling flow rate, metering output, and controlling the fuel temperature. In manual options, the operator must place the nozzle into the vehicle and remove it. For jobs that require a higher output, a semi-automated system is suggested.

Windshield Washer Fill Systems

Windshield Washer Fill Systems

Problem: The unique characteristics of the pickup trucks being filled required a custom design in order to interface with the vehicles.

Solution: Anderson Process solved the challenge around the routing and the filler tube with a special adapter to help fill the vehicles.

Specifications:
A PLC Control System was implemented with Human/Machine Interface for input of fill parameters, monitoring of machine faults and status, and communication with plant supervising control/information systems. The system blends ethanol and water while controlling and monitoring concentration, as well as density for quality. The result is highly customized dispensing equipment for precise windshield washer filling.

Transmission Fill Systems

Transmission Fill Systems

Problem: With three different transmission fluids (two forms of automatic, one for manual), this skid needed to fill thee different powertrains for SUVs. That required automatic interfacing with the different transmissions and controlling the varying flow rates.

Solution: Systems have a Variable Frequency Drive, which helps vary the fluid rate to what the transmission can handle. For Anderson Process’ skids, VFDs are now standard.

Specifications:
Transmission fluids are heated through an electric heater while the pump recirculates the fluid to get even, controlled temperature. A metering system ensures that the correct amount is put through the nozzle.

Small Engine Fill Systems

Small Engine Fill Systems

Problem: This manufacture for home power equipment small engines, manually filled gas and oil to complete test runs prior to shipping to the customer. Manually filling gas and oil resulted in excessive operator time and inconsistent fill amounts.

Solution: Anderson Process supplied a semi-automatic solution that precisely and simultaneously fills the required amount of gas and oil to support the test runs. Ultimately reducing operator fill time and reducing fluid cost due to inconsistent fill amounts.

Specifications:

  • Compliant to hazardous work area
  • User customizable fill parameters
  • Ergonomically friendly tooling design
  • Automatic filling with abort and recovery functionality
System Health Assessment

System Health Assessment

Problem: This dual-unit gasoline skid (with two meters and two metering pumps) was idle in storage for a long period of time.

Solution: Rather than building a new unit, Anderson Process replaced the piping, valves and pumps – replacing essentially everything but the frame and filter housing. This saved the company money compared to buying a new unit.

Important to Remember: There is equipment still in service that is decades old – including some systems that were installed during the 1990s.

Often, when a piece of equipment gets to be between 10-12 years old, certain parts become obsolete and can not be simply replaced.
