Bung & Capping Stations

Product Description

Most drum filling applications require bungs and labels to be applied directly after the the filling operation. The in-line bung and capping station, shown above, is the most popular operation. In a typical application, a powered conveyor will receive a filled container, or pallet load of drums, and while the next drum is being filled, the operator can place the bungs and caps onto the filled containers. In some cases, the customer has required a nitrogen purge at the same station as well.

The bung and capping station is made from structural steel, welded together with a bolt-down floor support base. The base and the top are both cantilevered sections, making it a C configuration. This one-piece superstructure allows it to be relocated to another zone, if needed. The pneumatic tooling for placing bungs and caps are optional can be provided as well.

Specialty has also built mobile bung and capping stations for batch filling operations. The one-piece unit is rolled around and locked in place with foot lock-casters, requiring only a plug-in for compressed air. The square tubing frame acts as a manifold for compressed air. Custom-made units can be built as well.
