Drum Filling Equipment

Drum Filling Equipment

EWFM supply a range of drum filling equipment, this includes engineered delivery nozzles, the drum filling head and even loading arms in some circumstances.

This range of drum or cask filling equipment is suitable for a wide range of fluids, at varying temperatures and pressures.   Each product is made to order and your specific requirements.

 

Drum Filling Head

The EWFM Drum Filling Head with Automatic Level Sensor is used for filling drums, IBCs, totes, barrels and casks.  This unit is used by companies in the food & drink, pharmaceutical, chemical and oil industries.  It can be adapted to suit most requirements and is a safe, reliable and easy system for transferring products, even where the fluid or paste to be transferred is either too chemically aggressive, highly viscous or contains particles.

The Engineered Drum Filler is generally supplied with one product port and one vapour port.  It is fitted with an Endress & Hauser tuning fork overfill level sensor to provide a signal for liquid shut-off when wired to your system/pump.  The sizes it is available in are 0.5”, 1”, 1.5” and 2” and materials available include Stainless Steel, Hastelloy and PTFE.  It can also be fitted with a Nitrogen purge on request.

 

Engineered Delivery Nozzles

The EWFM Engineered Delivery Nozzles are also designed for filling a wide variety of fluids into storage containers such as IBCs, drums and casks.  The Nozzles are available as a Manual Dispensing Nozzle or an Automatic Nozzle.  The manual version is operated by pulling and releasing the trigger to open and close the valve.  The automatic version has the advantage of sensing the back pressure when the fluid reaches the top of the drum and shuts off the valve automatically; a perfect solution to reduce the risk of overfilling.

The nozzle sizes available are 0.5”, 1”, 1.5” and 2” and materials include Stainless Steel, Hastelloy and also PTFE lined.  The Nozzles can also be fitted with a range of vapour recovery systems, operation sensors and end fittings.   We also offer a hygienic version on request.

 

Loading Arms

In some cases loading arms can be used to fill drums or Ibc’s.  Loading arms can be adapted to suit your media; our applications include hydrocarbon, chemical, food and hot products.  For this application they are genuinely supplied in a top filling configuration.  Manufactured in sizes down to a 2” bore they are the ideal solution for bulk filling.
