Traditional methods of container filling can be costly, both in terms of time and product waste due either to overfill (giveaway) or spillage. In addition, most methods rely on a high level of human interface and manual handling, which can present health and safety risks, as well as non- conformity to legal for trade requirements. The StrongArm concept addresses all of these issues in a single compact design. The simplicity of the design and build offers both a space and a cost effective solution, resulting in a machine which is easy to maintain and troubleshoot for engineers of all levels.

At the heart of the filling machine is a simple, yet cleverly engineered, articulated arm. This has been ergonomically designed for maximum operator efficiency and productivity. From a compact central pillar, the arm can be effortlessly moved to give a full 360 working radius with a reach of over two metres, thereby offering optimum filling versatility around the centre of the machine. Both fixed and mobile versions are available and the company are confident that the mobile StrongArm is the most compact and maneuverable machine on the market.

Containers can be filled on pallets or introduced to the filling head via roller conveyors. From a single press of a button, the dispensing lance descends into the container and begins filling automatically, initially in fast fill, then dropping to slow fill to achieve the required accuracy. The only other operator interface required is to accept the filled container and move onto the next fill.

The all stainless steel construction, combined with the sealed bearings in the articulated arm and the unique internal protection of the pneumatic drive cylinders, ensures long term reliability even in the harshest of environments. The clean, smooth lines of the StrongArm facilitate cleaning, whilst from a safety angle there are no finger traps.

For gravimetric filling, the Strong Arm can be supplied with a range of weigh scales and weight indicators. Legal for Trade approved scales allow filling to be carried out to weights and measures non-automatic weighing requirements. For optimum flexibility, multi-interval scales are available which allow the filling of different size containers on the same machine with the same relative precision. For instance such a set up could accommodate the accurate filling of 25 litre drums, 210 litre drums and 1000 litre IBCs, with the multi-interval scale effectively operating as three separate 3000 division approved units with ranges of 0-300 kg x 100 g, 0-600 kg x 200 g and 0-1500 kg x 500g.

Depending on the liquid being filled, we can advise on the most suitable material for wetted parts such as lances and probes. These include PVCu, PVDF and polypropylene.
