Mobile Pail Filler – Stainless

Product Description

The mobile pail filler has become a very popular product, because it allows the filling of pails at various locations, thereby avoiding the need for multiple fillers. This one is a food grade, semi-automatic, top and sub-surface pail filler, model MPF-510S, built to move around a food plant on casters. The most common application is used in filling batches of foaming liquids into 5 gallon pails. When used as a sub-surface filler, it will fill 4 to 7 gallon containers, with water, at an average rate of four pails per minute.

The filler is made of four, all-stainless steel components; (1) a special all-welded stainless carriage,  (2) a 200 lb capacity scale, (3) a roller conveyor on the scale, (4) the semi-automatic pail filler, and (5) the control panel with all the electrical and pneumatic components enclosed. The machine includes a 120 volt power cord. A lawn mower type handle is welded on the back of the machine for moving the filler around the plant. On a level floor, it requires only twenty five pounds of inertia to move the filler. A plug-in 100 psi air-line connection and 120 volt electrical connection is required to at each filling location, along with the infeed product line.

This stainless mobile pail filler is the most ruggedly built one in the industry. Its made with welded square tubing frames and includes heavy duty swivel casters with safety foot locks. It is recommended to have a preset, level floor position at each filling location.
