FT-400 Series Single or Multi Drum Filling System

Specifically designed for filling 4 x 200ltr drums pre-wrapped on a pallet or a single 1000ltr IBC, the FT-400 series filling machine operates by filling drums individually.

Once filled to the required weight, the machine auto accepts the weight and moves on to the next container and then once the last one has been completed, the operator will accept the final drum weight and pallet weight. The filling machine does not require 4 drums to operate because there are selector switches to turn filling lines on or off.

The filling nozzles can be manufactured from either 316 stainless steel, Hastelloy or PVDF with PTFE and Viton seals.

Filling Nozzle
The filling nozzle is made from 316 stainless steel as standard, we can also manufacture these in PVDF, PVC, HASTELLOY and PTFE, there are 2 types of filling nozzle; external opening (fitted as standard) or internal opening (used on open top pails/drums), these can be either top fill for non-foaming products or bottom fill for foaming.

Lift with Weight
When using our bottom fill nozzle we have the capability of a lift with weight operation, using our standard indicator you can adjust the target weight to control the lift set points, enabling you to keep the filling nozzle out or In of the product as much as you require.

Overfill Protection
The overfill protection system is designed into the filling nozzle; this system would/could be used as a fail safe shut off should there be a fault during a fill or to stop you filling the same container twice.

Nitrogen Purge
The nitrogen purge system has been designed into the filling lance and is used prior or during a fill process.

Clip Attachments
The CIP attachment is connected onto the bottom of our filling lance to enable the waste product/water that is used to clean through the system to be dispersed into a waste container or drain.

Fume Extraction
We have available 2 types of extraction hoods that we can fit, these fit around the filling nozzle sitting just above the bung hole.

All of our filling machines can be interfaced with a variety of pumps whether new or existing.
