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 platforms under the fill lance and presses the start button. At this time, the scale automatically tares the weight of the container. The drip pan retracts and the lance descends. When the lance reaches the bottom of the drum, it opens and begins to fill. The lance remains at the bottom of the drum for a short time, then slowly rises to its safety stop inside the drum to await shut off. As the drum approaches shut off weight, the dribble flow reduces the flow rate to increase accuracy. When the drum reaches shut off weight, the lance closes, rises and the drip pan moves below the lance. The operator pushes the container off the roller platform conveyor and places another container for filling.
