At your request, we will deliver a complete turnkey solution comprising everything from the machine-aided unloading of the empty drums from the truck to the palletising of full containers and load securing.
SAFETY - ACCURACY - FLEXIBILITY
Repeatable accuracy as well as the highest degree of safety during drum filling are fundamental requirements which have to be met by drum filling machines meeting the highest quality standards.
Irrespective whether your products are uncritical, foaming, explosive or flammable commodities, Feige FILLING as specialist for drum filling machines will make available suitable drum filling technologies. All drum fillers have a standardised working principle. Whether individually or arranged on a pallet, the drums reach the automatic drum filling unit empty, clean and closed and leave it filled with calibrated accuracy, clean and closed. Central components of the drum filler are filling valve and weigh scale. The filling operation takes place using the time-tested coarse/fine fill process. In order to observe the calibration error limits, it is necessary to restrict the volume flow towards the end of the drum filling process. This necessitates a two-stage or analogue adjustment of the filling valve opening.
Drum Filling - safely
With the Feige filling valve, you fill your liquid and viscous products with a proportional or multi-stage dosing system. The filling valve is dimensioned in accordance with your requirements on filling opening, viscosity and volume flow. Resistant materials such as stainless steel, Teflon, Hastelloy, titanium, nickel, PVDF and PTFE guarantee the reliable use of the filling valve. Depending on the area of application, you can also resort to filling valves of hygenic design, heated and with overfill protection. To enable you to change the filling valve within seconds during operation, a stainless steel quick-action filling valve mount is a standard feature.
The filling valves are equipped with important safety functions such as:
- Closing / opening with compressed air
- Closing with spring force
- Relieved of product pressure
- Leakage monitoring of the sealing space
- Fill level check
- Minimum dead space
Measuring the drum filling with calibrated accuracy
The Feige weigh scale terminal is the heart of the drum filling machine. Measuring the dosed filling volumes with calibrated accuracy is carried out with mass flowmeters (minimum filling volume and filling tolerance) or load cells (maximum weight), which are integrated in the drum filling machine as a system approved for verification. Safety mechanisms assume the control of all important parameters.
You operate the weigh scale terminal via discrete elements or a touch panel with alphanumerical input. The weigh scale records your operating data, logs the weighing results and puts statistical data at your disposal. The system communicates with your network or outputs the data on a mobile USB flash drive.
QUALITY AND PROCESS CONTROL
The high standards required by occupational health, safety and environmental protection require a correct and reliable closing of the drums. To be able to meet the corresponding requirements, closing with defined torque is indispensable.
The FEIGE closing station offers you safety and accelerates the closing procedure of your drums. The closing station consists of a plug bunging head with adjustable torque. In the automatic bunging station, the torque control integrated in the bunging head ensures that the plugs are reliably bunged into the filling openings with the correct torque.
A leak test may be carried out afterwards to check the screw connections and the sealing inside the plug for reliable closure. The sealing cap as original plug is an important factor and a quality feature for our drum filling machines.
The metal sealing cap is automatically fed to the drum filling machine as concluding step and is applied to the drums by the automatic machine with a special sealing tool. The correct sealing procedure is monitored.
FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR REQUIREMENTS
You decide on the degree of automation. From the Feige modular assembly system you compile your semi-automatic drum filling machine according to your individual requirements for the calibrated drum filling.
Select the equipment in accordance with your type of drum filling - individual container or pallet filling. The semiautomatic machines will support you during the entire drum filling process.
Accelerate your drum filling processes
The three product lines of Feige FILLING for semi-automatic drum filling offer you all the functions of gravimetric drum fillers, ranging from the reasonably priced drum filler "SlimLine" and the pre-configured drum filling station "CompactLine" to the drum filling system "AdvancedLine" with extensive peripherals.
The systems convince by their ease of operation and installation. Depending on the application, they are also available in mobile designs conforming to ATEX requirements. All main functions of gravimetric drum fillers are executed in time-tested Feige quality.
You can supplement drum filling machines produced by Feige FILLING at any time with additional modules, which integrate further working steps such as removing and marking the drums.
Individual container and pallet filling
The individual containers are positioned below the filling valve, automatically filled with calibrated accuracy and manually closed. Optionally, the filled drums can afterwards be palletised with Feige palletising systems. Empty containers that are already palletised prior to filling are consecutively filled on the pallet, after the filling valve has been manually positioned at the drum's bunghole. After actuating the start button, the container is automatically tared and filled with calibrated accuracy using the coarse / fine fill process. The necessary auxiliary tools for the correct bunging of the drums are made available to you.
