Drum Loading (GEMCOMATIC)

GEMCOMATIC Drum Loading Systems

Rapid Loading: The control system quickly brings the drum tray to the inverted position, slows to open the valve, discharge the contents of the drum into the vessel, closes the valve, then speeds up to quickly return the vessel to the upright position, then stops, ready for the next drum.

The GEMCOMATIC Drum Loading System dramatically reduces vessel loading time and operator downtime.

GEMCOMATIC Material Handling System Features

As a one-floor, one-person operation, the GEMCOMATIC eliminates second-floor mezzanine or platform expenditures, additional material handling costs, and saves processing time. A typical GEMCOMATIC system will discharge a drum in just 90 seconds and fill one in less than 60 seconds. This means fast throughput and greater processing efficiency. The blender spends more time blending and less time loading and unloading.
