Safe and hands-free mobile drum tipper

Flexicon (Europe) Ltd has launched a new mobile TIP-TITE Drum Tipper with safety cage.

Safe and hands-free mobile drum tipper

The UK-based company said the design allows hands-free, automated dumping of bulk solid materials from 115 to 200 litre drums throughout a plant, with no dusting or danger associated with sudden shifting of contents.

 

The three-sided carbon steel cage with safety interlocked doors is mounted on a mobile frame with quick-acting jack screws for stability. A platform raises the drum hydraulically, creating a dust-tight seal between the rim of the drum and the underside of a discharge cone.

 

A second hydraulic cylinder then tips the platform-hood assembly, stopping it at dump angles of 45, 60 or 90 degrees with a motion-dampening feature, causing the spout of the discharge cone to mate with a gasketed receiving ring on the lid of an enclosed hopper that charges a flexible screw conveyor.

 

A pneumatically actuated slide gate at the spout can be opened once the discharge cone has sealed to the receiving ring to discharge material, and then closed before returning the drum to its original position, with no dust emitted throughout the cycle.

 

Constructed of carbon steel with stainless steel material contact surfaces, the unit is also available in all-stainless steel finished to food, dairy or pharmaceutical standards. Optional cone adapters allow for safe, dust-tight dumping of small-diameter drums and pails.
