Tote Filling & Super Sack Handling Systems

Tote Filling EquipmentTraditional tote or super sack filling systems are labor intensive, dangerous and difficult to automate.  Re-usable totes are heavy and often need to be purged. Super sacks and totes can be processed faster and safer with an automated system.   EPIC will integrate a “hands-free” tote or super sack filling line with varying degrees of operator interface. Our tote filling systems, which come with a line-rate guarantee, include:

  • Tote/Super Sack Handling–  Complete conveyor systems to index the tote to the filling station, in the proper fill position, with pressure testing before fill
  • Tote/Super Sack Filling–Correct filling technology researched and provided (speed and sanitary requirements understood), subsurface filling, high-speed filling, automated dribble feed for accuracy
  • Automatic Intermediate Bulk Container Filling (IBC Filler System) – Liquid filling of IBC containers
  • Finished Tote Inspection– Cap detection, fill level inspection, code dating and label placement and inspection
  • Cap removal/ replacement – Torque to proper specification
  • Leak Pressure Testing
  • Hazardous fumes/ chemicals purging
  • Full Tote/Super sack Handling– Provide conveying systems to transport tote to the final location
  • Lift assist – fully or semi-automated lift assists to transfer full super sacks & totes for line operators
  • Palletizing– Palletizing drums/pails, stretch wrapping, pallet labeling, full pallet check weighing
