General

This document applies to:

- filling machines with cylinder and piston;

- filling machines with feed intake hopper;

- filling machines with vacuum hopper;

hereafter referred to as filling machines which process, e.g. meat, cheese and other pasty substances, excluding dry or frozen materials. They pump foodstuff into casings or bring it to a subsequent process.

This document applies also to the interchangeable equipment for filling machines with which a wide range of additional functions can be implemented. For example: portioning, depositing, mincing, coextruding, dividing and forming.

This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to filling machines and interchangeable equipment, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer and also the reasonably foreseeable misuse (see Clause 4).

These significant hazards, hazardous situations and events can arise during all the life phases including transportation, assembly, dismantling, disabling and scrapping of filling machines and interchangeable equipment.
