Filling Solutions has solved a filling and manual handling issue for a major UK oil and lubricants manufacturer with its Strongarm product.

Strongarm enables the company to fill blended oil from multiple storage tanks into a variety of containers without the manual handling difficulties involved with hand valves, pumps and metering equipment for each tank.

The tailor-made automatic mobile equipment requires only one operator, and the two identical machines supplied consist of an inverter-controlled pump, a special Filsol valve arrangement and an Endress and Hauser Proline Promass 40 Coriolis mass flow measuring system, together with all necessary hoses.

All that was needed to put these machines into use was the connection of an electrical supply and air line.

Both machines are mobile and have a small footprint of less than 1.5m2 when not in use.

The equipment will fill oil products with a wide variety of viscosities and specific gravities into containers ranging in size from 10 litres up to 1 tonne.

Accuracy is within 20g and repeatability is excellent.

There is no weighing platform – the containers can be filled anywhere within the range of the 2m-plus filling arm.

The all-stainless-steel construction incorporates fail-safe valves, and the amount of air consumed is very low.
