The single-headed machine will be fixed to the floor. Alternatively, the drum filling machine can be equipped with a rotating frame.
For the capacity purposes of 200 liter drums and those of a different capacity, high in viscosity materials such as acrylic, polyurethane and silicone will be utilized.
Drum filling machines equipped with higher viscosity materials are able to avoid the trapping of air bubbles of products during the filling process. The prevention of bubble formations is possible owing to the fact that the drum is being filled from the bottom up.
Product filters from underneath through to a filling plate. It levels off under pressure. This process also helps to drive out any air bubbles already within the product material. The drum filling machine will stop automatically, closing off its product with a cut-off ball valve once the desired filling level has been reached.
Such levels can always be adjusted at the behest of the client. It is also possible for industrial customers to be equipped with filling kits that can accommodate up to twenty-five liter buckets. While it is necessary for the fixed frame to be bolted to the floor, it is desired that the machine’s bearing column will be able to rotate at quick rates so that a second drum can be filled without having to incur drum changing operations.
A strongly welded frame with a central column is used to bolt the drum to the floor. A support cart with vertical sliding on linear bearings is issued for the machine’s head and filling pipe. The use of a rotating frame should be favored so that filling cycles to a second drum can commence with immediate effect.
