Overview

When filling hazardous chemicals, a fume booth allows the most amount of operator safety because it shields operators from toxic fume, acids and flammable chemicals. This custom made filler-in-a- fume booth was designed to fill small batches of hot, viscous and toxic liquids into twenty gallon, open-top fiber drums. The fill lance is heated to 275 degrees to allow the thick liquid to flow smoothly through the valves and lance. A fume booth filling system can be made for 5 gallon to 550 gallon containers.

Description of Operation

This is a custom-made filler in a fume booth for a drum filling operation.

  • The operator presses a button to allow the door to open and the conveyor to start
  • An empty drum conveys into the fill station and stops upon contact with a photo eye
  • The entry pneumatic door automatically closes upon a signal that the drum has arrived
  • The operator presses the start on the front panel to begin the fill cycle
  • An air operated, special round hood lowers over the mouth of the drum and sides
  • The controller automatically zeros the tare weight before beginning of fill cycle
  • When filling is complete, the air cylinder of the lance retracts to its home position
  • The air operated special hood also retracts to its home position
  • Using the thermal gloves, the operator places then seals a lid on the drum
  • By push button, the pneumatic exit door opens and the powered conveyor starts up
  • The sealed container conveys forward to the labeling station and stops
  • The pneumatic door closes and the operator calls for another drum
