High lift drum dumper
23 January 2013
New from bulk solids handling specialists, Flexicon is the Sanitary High Lift Drum Dumper that allows drums to be loaded at floor level, sealed against a discharge cone, elevated and tipped, mating the cone to a gas
Trademarked TIP-TITE, the dumper accommodates drums from 115 to 210 litres and can discharge bulk material into process vessels and equipment inlets 1525mm to 3050mm above the plant floor.
The drum platform is raised by a hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the rim of a drum and the underside of the discharge cone.
A second hydraulic cylinder raises the platform-hood assembly vertically before tipping it to a dump angle of 90 degrees, causing the vertically oriented cone to mate with a sealed receiving ring.
The ring can be fitted to the lid of an optional hopper with integral flexible screw conveyor or pneumatic pickup adapter, or to existing process equipment.
