Crandall Filling – Model DA, Top Fill, Electronic, Drum Filler

The Crandall Model DA, Top Fill, Electronic, Drum Filling Machine is a net weight filler filling any non-foaming food, petroleum or chemical product which will flow, settle out in the container and does not contain hard solids.  For foaming products, see model FD1/220 PEX filler.

  • Any free standing metal, glass, plastic or box-in-drum container from 50 litres to 220 litres (15 to 55 US gallons);
  • The 1000 lb. (500kg.) scale is a proven heavy duty design, specially adapted for the filling operation. Accuracy of the filler is +/- .1 of a pound when the machine is properly installed and operated;
  • Contact parts available in Brass and Steel (standard), 316 Stainless Steel, Sanitary Stainless Steel, Titanium, or PVC;
  • Air Requirements: 3 cu.ft. / min. @ 80 p.s.i. or 12 s.c.f m. @ 80 p.s.i. (80 ltr / min @ 5.6 kg/ per container filled;
  • Electrical Requirements; 110/120 volts 50/60 hz., single phase, grounded, clean; suggest using a surge protector; the scale controller classification is NEMA 4 X, liquid tight;
  • Speeds for gravity filling of water from a 10ft head tank into open top containers.  Actual rate depends on container opening size, product viscosity and supply system:
    • 60L (16 gal) – 120 per hour
    • 120L (30 gal) – 90 per hour
    • 220L (55 gal) – 60 per hour

Model Description


The operator simply enters set-point 1 (dribble flow) weight and set-point 2 (target weight) shy of the target allowing product in motion to be weighed. The operator then places the container on the fill platform under the fill nozzle and presses the start button. At this time, the scale automatically tares the weight of the container. The drip pan retracts and the nozzle descends approximately 2″ into the opening of the container. When the container reaches the set-point 1 weight, the product flow decreases to increase accuracy. When the container reaches set-point 2 shut-off weight, the nozzle closes and rises. When the fill head reaches top position, the drip pan will extend to catch any product or residue from the lance. The operator pushes the container off the roller platform conveyor and places another container for filling.


  • Infeed Discharge Conveyor: 4 ft. to 10ft gravity conveyor suggested for sustained use to ease loading and discharging of filled containers;
  • Stainless Steel frame;
  • Coatings available: two part epoxy spray coated or Steelit paint;
  • Explosion proof electrics for use in hazardous environments.  NEC classifications, Class 1, Div. 1, Groups C&D. Class 11, Div. 1, Groups E,F&G Class III;
  • Operator splash guard;
