Fume Skirts for Fillers

Product Description

This is a very popular filler accessory, because it is the least expensive device for removing up to 99% of dangerous fumes from the filling station. This Teflon bellows/skirt is designed to accept and collect the fumes during the drum or tote filling cycle. It is also a safety device, because it prevents liquid splash back during the filling operation. The air operated device is built onto the fume box and lowers a plate with a Teflon bellows attached. It pushes the nipple of the bellows into the bung opening of the drum while the bladder rests on top of the drum.

The bellows creates a seal for the fumes to be drawn out through a port on the side of the fume box. The filler controller automatically adjusts for the added weight of the bellows during the auto-tare process. A customer provided exhauster hooks up to the one inch port to draw the fumes away. The bellows retracts when the lance retracts at the completion of the fill cycle. This accessory can be added to any standard filler made by Specialty Equipment Corp.
