Tanks, Pumps and Recommendations on Product Supply to Filler

Supply Tank Direct to Filler Through Pump

Direct through pump: This supply configuration works well with centrifugal pump and short product delivery lines. Changes in tank level can effect fill accuracy.

Supply Tank Pumped to Buffer-Tank Equipped Filler

Pumped to buffer-tank: This supply configuration works well with longer product delivery lines. The buffer tank ensures product fill cycle speed by reducing flow requirements of pump and improves accuracy of fill.

Supply Tank to Filler Through Positive Displacement Pump and Filter

Pumped through filter: Positive displacement pump must be remotely controlled by filler (relay contacts turn pump on when fill valve opens and shut pump off when fill valve closes.) It is also important to set pump ramp-down to zero if controlled with a VFD drive.

Remote Controlled Pump Through Filter into Buffer Tank

Pumped through filter to buffer-tank: This supply configuration works well with longer product delivery lines. The positive displacement pump is remotely controlled by filler. The buffer tank ensures product fill cycle speed by reducing supply line surges and high pressures.
