Many food manufacturers are still emptying barrels and drums by hand, this back breaking work is labour intensive and unproductive. Graco container evacuation systems (drum unloaders) solve this problem. They are designed with numerous built-in features to protect foods from contamination. Graco's piston pumps are built with sanitary flanges, quick knockdown connections and a FDA-compliant air motor shroud, making cleaning and sanitization an easy process. The unloading systems are equipped with a pump ram with follower plate and inflatable seal protecting ingredients from external contamination and bacteria, leading to safer operations over dumping and scooping.
Graco seals inflate to conform to the container type and shape, providing evacuation rates up to 99% by cleanly wiping down the container's sides. The inflating seals are capable of accommodating ribs and slightly tapered barrels designs.
