Container Filling Systems: In-Use Advantages

NBE bulk container filling systems enable bulk material packaging and processing operations to run at designed speeds without concern for constant material waste, re-work, and excess labor costs common with under-performing bulk container loading equipment.

NBE bulk container filling systems, with integrated NTEP-certified scales, go beyond basic load cell accuracy to provide certified, continual, precision filling and weighing to +/- .01% accuracy. Precision filling, on a certified and repeatable basis, assures operations, supervision, and management personnel that containers are stable and safe, material loss is eliminated, and line operations are optimized.

Container Filling Systems: Features & Integration Guide

Heavy Gauge Materials, Heavy-duty Construction:
NBE bulk container filling systems are constructed of thick-walled, 6" x 4" x 5/16" structural tubing, and carbon or stainless steel sheet and plate to ensure extended equipment life cycles. NBE bulk material handling equipment uses the industry’s highest motor HP and torque rated gear reducers and drives, and the largest standard hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder bore sizes to optimize performance in harsh and sanitary environments, and deliver reliable operation in even the most demanding duty cycles.

Heavy-duty Materials and Construction

18,000 lb. deck weight capacity ensures high-volume processing and packaging capability. 8 GPM hydraulic fill head height adjustment speed exceeds that of ball screw designs. Operator interface points are designed to enable ideal, ergonomic operator posture. NBE bulk container filling systems are proven to reduce material loss, optimize line speeds, and improve labor efficiency.

Integrated Automation & Control Systems:
NBE integrated automation centralizes process control, communication, sensing, monitoring, and reporting into a single, menu-driven, touch-screen HMI. High-speed Ethernet communications deliver information between NBE equipment, and legacy systems, to UL listed panels designed and built by NBE. NBE integrated automation delivers to the HMI a standard data report from the entire control layer. Broader controls functionality and increased data reporting improve resource management, reduce operating burden, and extend equipment lifecycles.

NTEP-certified, Precision Weigh Systems:
NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems give bulk container filling operations the assurance of consistently repeatable, highly accurate (+/- .01%) finished package weights. The assured accuracy and repeatability of NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems is the result of specific engineering and fabrication, and design-stage integration of NTEP-certified weigh devices. Typical weigh systems, using bolt-on load cells or third-party NTEP scale components, may produce variable weight outcomes if not accurately calibrated to the host filling system. The precision accuracy of NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems reduces material loss with each fill cycle; eliminating re-work, reducing labor costs and inventory, and improving total process optimization.

NTEP-Certified Precision Weigh Systems

NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems measure material fill weight to an accuracy of +/- .01%, up to a 4,000 pound container capacity. The assured accuracy and repeatability of NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems is the result of specific engineering and fabrication, and design-stage integration of NTEP-certified weigh devices. Typical weigh systems, using bolt-on load cells or third-party NTEP scale components, may produce variable weight outcomes if not accurately calibrated to the host filling system. The precision accuracy of NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems reduces material loss with each fill cycle; eliminating re-work, reducing labor costs and inventory, and improving total process optimization.

Single-station, Variable Container Filling & Densification:
NBE single-station, bulk container filling for drums, cartons, gaylords, bulk bags, and other bulk containers advances beyond common rotating fill head designs to provide container-specific filling, densification, and NTEP-certified weighing. The NBE single-station variable container filling system has a proprietary densification design integrating two densifying methods. This enables varied container types to be process through the same fill station while ensuring precise fill volume and weigh accuracy.

Multiple Container Mode: Vibratory Densifier Arm and Pad

When in the multiple container controls setting, the NBE single-station variable container filling system safely and accurately densifies multiple containers on a single pallet using an automated, vibratory densifier arm and pad.

Independent of the deck base, the arm and pad extend to densify one container at a time. When complete, the pallet deck rotates to repeat the cycle on each container on the pallet; eliminating empty drum bounce and unsafe operator interaction common with conventional densifiers.

Single Container Mode: Deck-only Vibratory Densifier

When in the single container controls setting, the NBE single-station variable container filling system safely and accurately densifies single containers such as gaylords, bulk bags, and totes using the deck-only vibratory densifier mode.

The NBE deck-only vibratory densifier mode isolates 3 Gs of vertical vibration force to the deck of the unit rather than vibrating the entire base of the station. Isolated vibration concentrates the vibratory effect to only the container, enabling precise package weight accuracy. Hand leveling of material and possible material contamination are eliminated.
