The APT Drum Unloading System works on the basis of volumetrically conveying the process pump, creating a vacuum under the follower plate. This applies pressure on the material in the drum, providing the pump with continuous suction – resulting in the system emptying the drum successfully, with less than 1% material remaining inside. This is due to the follower plate, with FDA silicone gasket, pressing tightly against the drum wall.
The linear guide rail system is driven hydraulically and can be adjusted to suit the height of each drum.

Standard CIP process can be implemented for cleaning this system.
