PalDrum®03 automatic drum and bucket filling station - Dosing by twin-screw feeder

The PalDrum®03 drum and pail filling station provides high-throughput, high-accuracy filling with twin-screw dosing technology. The Palamatic Process D14 twin-screw feeder provides high flow rate and fine precision due to the small dosing screws.
Each of the augers is driven by an independent motor allowing individualized control and automation. To ensure dosing regularity and maximum precision, screw feeding is provided by a motorized rotary breaker.

PalDrum® 03 - Automatic Filling Line:

For manufacturing processes that require a high filling rate, the PalDrum®03 conditioning station offers all the necessary modular configurations, primarily:
- Automatic drum conveying
- Dust control by capture hood
- Automatic weighing
- Removal of lids (for packaging in buckets)
- Labeling

To provide clean packaging operations of drums and pails, the PalDrum®03 packaging station offers three connection configurations:

  1. Inflatable seal: provides a dust tight connection of the inner liner inside the drum. The filling head is equipped with a double envelope to allow volume balancing, as well as dust removal during the filling sequence.
  2. Containment plate: is actuated by a pneumatic cylinder and pressed against the top of the drum or bucket to provide a dust tight connection during the filling phases.  ​​​​​​
  3. Suction hood (Capture hood): for versions requiring a very high filling rate, the PalDrum®03 loading station can be delivered with an upper suction hood, providing continuous dust removal from the material loading station. This technology does not require the presence of an operator at the filling station, allowing automatic operation.

Gain Gross weighing Weighing of the entire container and contents Commercial weighing, traceability
Conveyor C Evacuation
Holding and evacuation of the barrel during packaging Ergonomics, increased cadence

Our PalDrum®03 packaging machine is configurable by modulating the possible basic equipment: choice 1 + choice 2.
Example of possible reference: PalDrum®03-J-C-Gross.

Description of choices:

Choice 1, 2 weighing modes:
As with all PalDrum® stations, the weighing technology can be selected according to your throughput.

  • Gain-in-weight: for weighing drums during filling (IPFA commercial weighing certification)
  • Loss-in-weight: for weighing your products upstream and checking the weight after packaging on a secondary conveyor (IPFA commercial weighing certification)

Line rate:
The PalDrum03 filling station offers filling rates of more than 200 buckets/minute for 5 liter containers. The exemplary modularity of the packaging machine offers tailor-made solutions for your specific applications.


Operating sequence:

The PalDrum® 03 is a fully automated drum and bucket packing station that operations at a high level of efficiency due to the minimal amount of human intervention.
From the positioning of the containers on the conveyor to the removal and storage of the drums, all the steps are carried out and controlled by automatons.

Equipment advantages

- Fully sealed drum filling system for dust containment

- Filling rates adapted to production

- Dosing system: 4 load cells implanted under the feet of the conveyor and controlled by the dosing mechanism for an autonomous and accurate filling operation

- The motorized conveyor transports and stores the filled drums to create buffer stock and prevent the shifting of the drums for further securing and safety
