Drum Decanting Units
Drum Decanting Units are a mechanized and automated means to add small volume additives into a blend.
They are equipped with conveyor belts, load cells, controls, rinse tanks, and swivel lances. Our unique design even allows for transfer of some of the most viscous additives. By automating dosing, rinsing, and transferring you can increase efficiency and safety with our Drum Decanting Units.
