Drum Transfer System


Advanced solution for handling drums in pharmaceutical manufacturing.

The Drum Transfer System is a simple and convenient solution for handling drums containing pharmaceutical ingredients, allowing operators to achieve tasks as a subdivision of the product or feeding pharmaceutical equipment such as mills, reactors, vessels, and mixers. This technology can achieve OEB5 containment levels with nanogram-level results. It’s based on proven applications and follows the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering’s (ISPE) Standardised Measurement of Equipment Particulate Airborne Concentration (SMEPAC) guideline for its particulate containment performance.

The drum can be loaded on our drum tipper from the floor. One adjustable stainless-steel belt secures the drum on the cradle, and a pneumatic drive safely moves, lifts, and swings the drum in a horizontal position to connect to the next step of the process. This will allow a safe drum lifting and will place the drum in an optimized position to connect it with the drum transfer system.
