(under the class definition) Apparatus in which the filling operation involves the centrifugal distribution of materials either in the dispensing means whereby the material is distributed into receivers, or in the receiver itself whereby material in the receiver is distributed.
(1) Note. The speed of the rotary movement must be sufficient to impel or distribute the material by a positive motion as by throwing or accelerating gravity flow.
(2) Note. There must be an action on the contents material for at least a part of the filling or separating operations. The essence here is the resulting distribution of material in the receiver.
