Overview

This is a custom made, all stainless steel drum filler built within a fume booth which includes a filling and a cooling station. The unique system was designed to fill hot, viscous, and toxic liquids into 55 gallon drums. In addition to being somewhat toxic, the liquid was also 300 degrees F.

The first station is for drum filling and fume collection. The second station is a cooling booth for the hot drum to dwell for a predetermined time before the bung can be placed on it. An air operated sliding door is positioned between the two stations to keep the heat and the fumes separated. Pneumatic sliding doors with interlocks are also provided on the entry and exit doors.

The temperature is controlled by a thermostat that can be changed by the filler operator. Inside the filling station is a special funnel that is lowered over the drum to collect the fumes. A powered conveyor is located at each work station, plus thermal gloves for the operator, and clear plastic windows on the top, sides, back and front.

Description of Operation

  • The operator aligns the drum’s bung opening under the filling lance
