The Serac Pail Filler

This is a versatile and flexible machine designed specifically for handling and filling larger containers.  The machine (Model IL 2/6) has the ability to accommodate many different viscosities through the use of programmed flow control.

Using this smart technology and depending on the product recipe requirements, the container is filled at different flow rates – adjusting the flow during the filling cycle. Resulting in a clean and accurate fill that is efficient and quick without overflow, dripping or splash.



  • The filling system has multiple valves arranged in a dual flow configuration and depending on the flow rate the system requires, the machine will fill with 1 - 2 or 3 valves in any combination and rate.

Container Handling:

  • Our Pail Filler has auto infeed and exit of the containers with upstream and downstream sensors to alter the machine if there is a low infeed of containers or a backup downstream.

System Controls:

  • Controls include the DIGI+ for controlling the scale as well as maintaining the product files and recipe storage. The PLC panel is equipped with touch screen input allowing for simplified machine control.


  • The Serac Pail filler uses net weight filling technology, which precisely controls the amount of product as it enters the container. The pail filler is equipped with 2 independent load cell scales that are so sensitive they can measure a human breath. In addition to the load cell scales, the product infeed is equipped with an automatic level control system in the filler bowl designed to maintain the correct amount of product in the tank to ensure an optimal filling rate.


  • The system has hydraulic adjustments to quickly and easily change the tank height for different sized containers, allowing for quick and easy container change-over.
