The variable container filling system is a single-station, bulk filling, densification, and weighing system for drums, gaylords, bulk bags, totes, and cartons. The variable container filling system enables multiple and varied container types to be processed through the same fill station. When a cycle is started, a single, UL listed, menu-driven controller, designed and built by the manufacturer, meters material feed rates based on container type, material recipe, densification cycles, and finished package weight. The NTEP-certified weigh system, together with the fill/densification program, ensure each container is processed to a fill weight accuracy of +/- .01%. Operator interaction is limited to controller operation and container loading and unloading.
