Material Transfer & Storage, Inc: Drum filling system

Material Transfer’s Material Master stainless steel drum filling system allows filling of various size drums.
Print Reprint
FILED IN:  Machinery  > Filling/sealing  > Dry filling
     

An operator manually places a drum on the base of the unit, seals the fill adaptor to the drum, enters a target weight (remotely-mounted weight indicator not shown), and initiates the filling cycle.

An integral vibratory feeder features two filling speeds for increased filling accuracy. Once the target weight is reached, a signal is sent to stop the vibratory feeder. The  operator raises the drum fill head, and the  filled drum is removed.

Custom designed units are available.
