Overview

This movable pail filler requires a fork truck or pallet jack to move it from station to station. It is a top and sub-surface pail filling machine for 1 to 7 gallon pails, or containers up to 19″ tall. Typically this filling machine is designed for batch operations, or low volume pail filling runs. A 3/4″ diameter lance is used for small bung openings, but lances are available up to a 1.9″ diameter. The choice of lance diameters depends on the bung opening of the containers to be filled.

Once the machine has been moved into place, the operator will hook-up the compressed air line, the infeed product line, and plug in the power cord. The controls are on the handle in front of the operator. The photo above also shows the optional, clean-in-place lance flush adapter, along with a portable air operated lid press.
