Filler Controls

Product Description

Specialty manufactures all its fillers and conveyor systems with the necessary controls. Each control panel is built, programmed and tested at the plant, along with the fillers, conveyors and pneumatic devices to be controlled. Specialty has built, programmed and installed liquid fillers with control panels in hazardous, corrosive, toxic, flammable, windy, abrasive, wet, and normal conditions. The push button controls necessary for the operator to activate the filler and conveyors in each system, are built onto the handle in front of the operator. The standard control panel specifications for drum, tote and pail fillers are listed below.

Explosion proof control panels are NEMA 4X enclosure and nitrogen purged, rated for class 1, division 1. Specialty also builds stainless steel control panels, commonly applied to flavoring, food, food additives, and chemical environments, where wash-down, corrosion, and contamination are concerns.
