JRAC Depositor 013

The                        JRAC Depositor       U.S. Patent No. 7,191,957


The JRAC Depositor is made especially for depositing viscous materials, such as jams, jellies, filler creams, peanut butter, chocolates, soft dough and batters, fondants, and other flow-able materials. It is unique, in that it uses the principal of peristalsis as its primary means of metering the deposited amount.

The principal of peristalsis consists of moving a liquid or flowable viscous material through a flexible tube by pinching the filled tube, and travelling the pinch along the tube.


In its basic form, the JRAC Depositor consists of a flexible tube, connected on one end to a manifold or hopper, and on the other end, to a nozzle, as shown here. An immediate advantage is obvious: the material to be deposited has a clean path from the manifold to the nozzle, without touching any moving parts, thus providing the ultimate in sanitation.
