Filling systems for drums

Fill drums precisely, automatically and safely

The GREIF-VELOX filling systems were specially developed for the efficient and safe filling of drums.

Our systems are designed for bung or clamping ring lid drums made of sheet steel or plastic and cover a wide range of liquids with different viscosities.

Optimize your filling process with our filling systems for drums in the chemical, petrochemical and food industries.

Adaptability: Our systems can be adapted to specific customer requirements, with different workstations for centering, inerting and filling, allowing high production capacity.

Automatic drum transport technology: We offer a complete one-stop solution that includes the integration of drum transport technology to ensure seamless and efficient filling.

Adaptation to local conditions: The filling systems can be individually adapted to your local conditions to enable optimal integration into your production environment.

Flexibility and safety: Our systems offer great flexibility in the types of containers that can be filled and are suitable for use in hazardous areas Zone 1, which ensures safety in dangerous environments.

Suitable filling processes for drum filling

Below bunghole filling

Specially developed for filling into lidded drums, this process is suitable for non-foaming and viscous products. It enables precise and safe filling by introducing the liquid directly through the bunghole.

Above level filling

Recommended for non-foaming products and low viscosity liquids filled into bunghole containers. This process is particularly suitable for products that do not have any special safety requirements and for which avoiding foam formation is not important.

Below level filling

Ideal for filling foaming products and for situations where explosive gases can be released. With this process, the liquid exits just below the liquid surface, which minimizes the formation of foam and prevents electrostatic charges.

drum filling

A-DOS-FS drum filling system


The A-DOS-FS offers a comprehensive solution for automated drum filling with a capacity of up to 35 drums per hour.

Your work process includes automatically feeding the drums to the filling station, where the bunghole is automatically centered.

This ensures accurate alignment for the subsequent step of opening, inerting, filling and finally capping and clinching, all in a single station.

Once these processes have been completed, the drums are automatically transported further.


Automatic drum transport technology and opening technology as well as closing technology from a single source, which makes the filling process efficient and user-friendly.

Suitable for a variety of different liquid properties.

Highly adaptable to different container types, including the ability to fill foaming products and substances for hazardous areas.

Tailor-made solutions that can be adapted to local conditions, as well as delivery of the system technology in a closed housing for additional protection and security.


Additional safety devices such as inerting, overfill shut-off or collecting trays.

Ability to increase automation with modular systems including controlled valve lift or automatic valve base height adjustment.

Good cleaning ability of the parts in contact with the product and availability of special cleaning equipment.

Available in stainless steel and special wetted parts materials to meet industry standards and hygiene requirements.

Integration into the customer's product feed and integration into the customer's control systems, which enables seamless integration into existing production lines.

Fully automatic portal filling system A-DOS-P1

The A-DOS-P1 is a fully automatic portal filling system developed for filling liquids into drums. With a capacity of up to 40 drums (200 l) per hour, the system offers a highly efficient and safe solution for the chemical and petrochemical industries as well as for the food and building materials sectors. The drums are automatically fed, opened, filled, closed and palletized.


Flexibility and adaptability: Suitable for a wide range of liquids, including foaming substances and adaptable for use in Ex areas Zone 1. The System offers high flexibility in the types of containers that can be filled.

Environmental protection and safety: Integrated inerting and overfill shutdown minimize the risk of environmental damage and protect employees.

Automation: The entire filling process is automated, which increases efficiency and reduces the error rate.


Extended safety features: Additional safety devices such as inerting, overfill shutdown or drip trays.

Higher automation: Adjustments such as controlled valve upward movement or motorized valve base height adjustment.

Special equipment and material selection: Available in stainless steel and with special materials for product-contact parts.

Integration and customization Possibility of customization to customer-side product feeders and integration into customer-side control systems.
