Mobile Pail Filler

Product Description

Not everyone needs, or can justify, a production run pail filler. For this reason, Specialty created this mobile pail filler for customers with batch operations at multiple locations within a plant. This is a semi-automatic, top and sub-surface pail filler, model MPF-510, built to move around a plant floor on casters. The customer uses it to fill foaming liquids into 5 gallon plastic pails. Actually, when used as a sub-surface filler, it will fill from 4 to 7 gallon containers, at an average rate of four pails per minute.

The filler is made of six major components; (1) a special structural steel welded mobile carriage,  (2) a 200 lb capacity scale, (3) a conveyor on the scale, (4) the semi-automatic pail filler, and (5) the control panel. It 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 air-line connection and 120 volt electrical connection is required at each filling location, along with the infeed product line.

This mobile pail filler is the most ruggedly built in the industry. Its made with structural steel, all-welded 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.
