DPC 1500 – Semiautomatic filling machine by Weight for drums
0. Description of the basic machine
Series of filling machines suitable for any kind of liquid product, in rigid containers, from 50 to 1500 kg.
Fully pneumatic operated.
Model identification: DPC 50-300-1500 (the number corresponds to the Max scale capacity, in kgs)
The fillers drums, can be supplied in two different configuration:
a. In line, suitable to handle one drum at a time (DPC 50 – DPC 300)
b. In line, but suitable to handle one pallet with four drums, at a time (DPC 1500)
1. Connections to the power nets:
a. The machine is operated by compressed air at 6 Bar (minimum pressure for a reliable running: 5 Bar)
b. The machines equipped with a load cell scale need to be fed by electric power, as well, at 220V – 50 Hz except for specific request.
2. Preliminary adjustments
a. To adjust the filling head, 1÷2 cm higher than the upper edge of the containers or of the filling hole to be worked out.
To lock the filling head by the handle on the supporting box.
b. To set the scale.
The machine carries out the filling operation in two stages:
Coarse filling, Max opening of the nozzle to fill approximately 80÷90% of the final weight.
Topping up, partial automatic closing of the nozzle, to fill up to 98÷99% of the final theorical weight, considering the “flying product” when the scale sends the signal of the final weight got.
The sharing of the filling, in those two stages, will be very important, determining the output capacity and the accuracy of the filling operation.
The two stage limits, (figures), can be setted by the adjustment of the position of two proper pneumatic sensors, on the dial scale.
Load cell scale
To set the two stage limits by the keyboard of the scale
To connect the machine to the nets:
- Compressed air
- Electric power
To put one empty drum under the filling head.
To push START, (two push buttons if the machine is ready for filling and closing).
The machine completes the two stages of the filling cycle in automatic mode.
In the version b), 4 drums on the pallet, at the end filling of the first drum, to move the nozzle on the filling hole of the next drum.
To push START again: the scale, after the automatic zerotara, is ready for a new filling cycle in two stages.
To go on with the 3rd and 4th drum.
As general this machines are equipped with powered roll conveyor to make easy the pallet advancement from the inlet conveyor to the scale platform and for the full pallet evacuation.
On request a full automatic version of such a filler is available; the automatic filling hole research and centering by videocamera.
It is suggestable to check the weight of the first 2÷3 containers and, if the case, to adjust, (to modify), the data setted or the partial closing of the nozzle by the knobs on the control box of the filling head.
NOTE: detailed information and instructions on the machine, on the adjustment, use, maintenance, and spares parts, are available on the handbook supplied with the machine
