How it works

The volume required to fill a drum, IBC, bag in box, transit tank, tanker or vessel is set in the flow meter via the smartphone app using the Bluetooth connection (you need to be within 15m and have the password for the meter). The pump speed can be adjusted, set via the variable speed drive. Then it's a simple matter of setting up the fill, connect the hose from the supply vessel, connect up the hose to the receiving vessel. If you need to have a priming facility to purge Oxygen to the terminal sterilant, then this can be added as an extra button on the panel. This would simply force open the valve and run the pump while the button remains pressed. The pump will only run when it's flooded and the dry run probe is wet. When the system is connected and primed ready to go, it's a simple task to press start and the metered transfer pump delivers the programmed volume.

If for some reason, you need to abort the fill, you can stop the product run via the stop button. When you start the production run, it opens the valve, starts the pump on a slow ramp-up to match the valve opening rate and begins totalising the flow. When the totalised flow matches the volume set, the valve closes and the pump ramps down to a stop, ensuring there is no reverse flow. At the end of each product run, you can read off the actual volume delivered either on the flow meter or via the Bluetooth app on a smartphone. The meter resets only when the next product run is triggered to start. If you abandon a product run, you can still view and record the actual flow delivered.

For vessel to vessel, the basic metered pump unit is ideal. If you want to use the metered pump to fill drums and small vessels then you may be advised to consider one of several drum filler accessories such as a "Racking Arm" which is the ideal accessory to fill drums such as a brewery cask. The racking arm has a foot valve, start button fill tube to place in the drum's open top. At the end of the product run/drum/cask fill, the pump stops and the foot valve closes. The fill tube can then be withdrawn without spilling any product.
