The standard fill station is operated by a pneumatic cylinder to lower and clamp the fill lid to the IBC or other process vessel inlet. The fill lid seals to an integrated cone valve when raised. Closing off the inside of the station and the powder transfer equipment above. This provides a straightforward and worry-free operation during the filling process in our IBCs.
It has an integral vent pipe to exhaust the displaced air in the IBC or process vessel as the powder is loaded. It provides a degree of containment with the inside of the station and the IBC or process vessel being exposed to the outer environment only during the engagement or the disengagement of the fill lid which remains tightly sealed to the inlet during the product transfer.
Thus providing a total dust containment-free process during the filling. This is crucial and facilitates applications for the chemical, pharmaceutical, and nutraceutical sectors. With the aid of floor locators and sensors, the Fill Head can only be lowered when the IBC is in position with the lid removed and the cone valve installed. For added assurance that the IBC is filled with the appropriate amount of goods, a floor scale is an optional addition.
- Cyclonic design of the fill head to ensure maximum dust containment
- Free passage for the products to flow
- Easy to clean/ Minimum downtime: Can be dismantled and assembled in matter of minutes
- Least number of components: Less spare parts requirements
