Overview

Built for a food grade application, this filling machine is used whenever filled drums will be picked-up by a fork truck, or palletized. It is an all-stainless steel, semi-automatic, top and sub-surface, drum and pail filling machine. The conveyors are also all-stainless steel construction with wash-down duty drives. When used in the sub-surface mode, this filling machine will fill 5 to 55 gallon containers. If open mouth containers are used, this filler can run automatically. All the necessary controls to operate the filler and conveyors are on the operator handle.
