Overview

This custom-made drum filling system was built to automatically fill 55 gallon open-mouth drums with highly combustible powder. At the fill station a robot arm with suction cups shuttles to the drum to remove and hold the lid then shuttles it back. Before filling, a special dust cover lowers over the open-mouth drum to seal it for dust collection during the filling cycle. The drum is rotated for labeling before it enters the first air lock. Once inside, a guillotine door closes to seal it in. The dust collection vents and windows are on the back side of the system. A full cover attached to the fill spout has a port for connecting to a dust collection system.

The fully automatic all-stainless steel system includes;

  • A drum rotator at the infeed station
  • An air lock prior to the filler
  • Lid removal and replacement robot
  • Air-operated dust cover over the drum
  • An air lock after the filler
  • A wash down watering system
  • Special baffles and vents
  • Explosion proof controls
  • All-stainless powered conveyors
  • Pneumatic drum positioning devices
  • Four air-operated guillotine doors
  • Two hinged maintenance doors
  • Six plastic see-through windows
