Drum & Tote Filling

Cantilevered Liquid Drum Filling System

Improve Bulk Liquid Filling Efficiency; Increase Throughput

NBE drum and tote filling systems for bulk liquid processing and packaging are engineered-to-application; ensuring process-specific performance metrics are met and optimal total cost of ownership is achieved. From fullstream, high-throughput bulk container filing projects, to liquid filling systems for small-batch, low-rate production, NBE bulk liquid filling and packaging systems for drums and totes enable project owners, AECs, and operations staff to move beyond the constraints of build-to-order units into the performance advantages of NBE engineered-to-application equipment, systems, and projects.

Application Selections

NBE liquid filling systems for drums and bulk totes are engineered-to-application to ensure tangible performance benefits for bulk liquid packaging and processing operations across industries such as: food and beverage, building products, chemical, paint and coatings, adhesives and sealants, and others. Regardless of liquid viscosity, solids concentration, foaming, or temperature, NBE drum and tote filling systems are designed and built to the particular requirements of each application to deliver highly accurate and repeatable fill cycles at designed throughput and yield. From semi-automatic, small-batch systems to fully integrated, fullstream projects, NBE liquid filling systems for intermediate bulk containers provide optimal performance to liquid processing and packaging operations.

Tote Filling

  • Cantilever: The NBE cantilever-design liquid filling system provides application-specific performance advantages to liquid packaging lines filling intermediate bulk container totes. For bulk liquid handling operations where filled-container throughput requirements may vary, or where batch runs are the norm, the NBE cantilever-design liquid filling system is engineered to simplify operator-equipment interaction while optimizing production. The motor-assisted, three-axis drive system acts in response to operator guidance to smoothly locate the cantilevered positioning arm and precisely place the control carriage of the diving-nozzle lance. Triangulating sensors aid the operator in aligning the lance and bung. The nozzle-view camera, visible at the operator control interface, improves fill cycle efficiency and line yield.
  • Gantry: For intermediate bulk tote filling applications requiring high-rate throughput and fullstream process integration, the NBE gantry-design bulk container liquid filling system is engineered-to-application to ensure optimal performance of every upstream process requirement, and reliable, repeatable supply to every downstream operation. The NBE diving-nozzle lance and lance control carriage operates on a motor-assisted, three-axis gantry system. Guided by operator inputs, triangulating photo sensors, and a nozzle-view camera visible at the operator interface, the NBE lance control carriage more quickly and precisely aligns the lance and bung while reducing operator-equipment interaction. NBE engineered-to-application gantry-design bulk liquid filling systems enable fully automated container infeed, fill positioning, and filled-container accumulation; providing total process performance advantages to bulk liquid packaging operations demanding high throughput and high yield.

Drum Filling

  • Cantilever: The NBE cantilever-design liquid filling system for 55-gallon drums and 30-gallon drums is engineered to the specific requirements of each application. NBE cantilever-design drum filling systems deliver increased operator efficiency and improved line yield to bulk liquid processing and packaging operations. Whether filling liquid into a single drum or filling four drums per pallet, the NBE cantilever-design drum filling system provides net-weight fill accuracy to +/- 0.25% of total fill weight per drum; reducing material waste and rework. The NBE diving-nozzle lance design, and the 125-gallon per minute fill rate ensure fast cycle times per drum; even when filling liquids that foam or bubble, or when filling high-viscosity liquids. For applications packaging liquids in close-top drums, the motor-assisted, three-axis drive system, together with triangulating photo sensors and the nozzle-view camera, aid the operator in locating the cantilevered lance positioning arm to precisely align the lance and bung. Fill cycle rates are reduced, line yield is increased, and operator-equipment interaction efficiency is improved.
  • Gantry: Every NBE gantry-design liquid packaging system is engineered to the specific performance requirement of its application. When bulk liquid packaging operations require fullstream integration of a drum filling system, and when optimal process efficiency requires integrated automation, NBE engineered-to-application gantry-design drum filling systems deliver reliable, repeatable throughput with consistent yield at designed rates. The structural framework chassis of the NBE gantry-design drum filling system, together with NBE upstream infeed and downstream accumulation CDLR conveyors, enables automated, high-rate throughput of four-drum loaded pallets. For semi-automatic, or fully automated applications, the NBE diving-nozzle lance and lance control carriage operates on a motor-assisted, three-axis positioning system. The NBE lance control carriage, guided by triangulating photo sensors, a nozzle-view camera, and operator inputs, quickly and precisely aligns the lance and bung while reducing operator-equipment interaction. With a 125-gallon per minute fill rate, and net-weight fill accuracy to +/-0.25% of total fill weight per drum, the NBE gantry-design liquid filling system will provide high-yield, high throughput, engineered-to-application performance to fullstream drum filling and packaging operations.
