Specialty Chemical Filling Line
Ideal-Pak’s semi-automated bottom filling drum and tote line filling delivers Increased production and throughput with Ideal-Pak’s net-weight fill system technology and a variety of smart conveyor configurations. Totes and palletized drums are automatically transported from the initial in-feed conveyor onto the scale conveyor where totes are automatically filled (with no operator intervention) and drums are filled with the assistance of an operator.
