"We have been using the scale trucks for years, they have proved to be indispensable. The job today is very complex, with all these different batches. We use the trucks all day long."

- AD VAN DER MEIJ, SUPERVISOR MAINTENANCE

Filling drums and IBC's on electrical pallet trucks

Tank lorries daily supply the hundreds of components necessary for the production of chemicals. Quaker works on demand: customers order a product and Quaker mixes it. There is no stock keeping of the mixed, finished product. The components are mixed in large, fixed silo tanks that hold 1,000 to 3,000 kg of finished product. From these tanks smaller amounts up to 300 kg are dosed into IBC-containers or drums. This filling is done on STILL EXU 20 weighing electrical pallet trucks: through a hose the finished product is pumped from the silo to a drum or IBC-container on the weighing pallet truck. From the rotating RAVAS-indicator the operator can read the amount pumped into the drum. The trucks are equipped with a WLAN module that enables the RAVAS weighing system to communicate with a WMS or ERP system. In future Quaker will use the WLAN equipment to register on line the amounts filled into the drums and containers.

Filling
Accurate filling of drums, containers and big bags means there is no unnecessary loss of material. By weighing the containers during transport on a pallet truck, forklift or stacker, you achieve a higher efficiency and flexibility in your filling processes. It will also help you to simplify logistics and reduce the risk of damages and product loss, since it is no longer necessary to drive the materials between warehouse and scale. The width of the RAVAS product range allows you to configure your mobile scale according to your specific needs. You can choose for a legal for trade version if you fill retail packaging, or a stainless steel version if you dose corrosive substances. A rotating scale indicator allows you to read off the weight from all angles.
