PPC Friction Top Closing Machine

PPC Friction Top Closing Machine

Range of Containers:

The PPC 5 is designed to close standard and heavy duty plastic pails with press on lids with lid diameters up to 17" ( 35 cm.). The PPC 5 will also close various friction top metal cans.


The table top conveyor moves at a rate of 30 ft. per min. ( 9.2m./min.) allowing a standard 5 US gallon (20 liter) at a rate of 20 per minute. The machine will accept randomly spaced containers and close either empty or full containers.


The machine is shipped assembled and can be installed easily by your plant personnel. Machines are built to customer height specifications to meet other conveyors in the line.

The motor must be connected to a on/off switch that is to be supplied by the customer. Leveling jacks with a 6" adjustment are provided.


The containers enter the machine with the lids placed on top. As the container passes below the closing wheels the lids are pressed on tight. The synchronized moving table top chain and wheels allow continues movement of containers through the closer.

Change of Containers:

To adjust for container heights a rack and pinion system raises and lowers the closing wheels. Locking bolts are supplied so closing wheels do not drift while in operation.


The closing assembly is guarded with clear Polycarbonate as is the drive chain on the motor. Always practice safe operation by shutting off the machine whenever performing maintenance or clearing any debris from machine.


Sturdy, welded steel construction provides a need for minimum maintenance and assures long life.
