Dust tight seal
23 January 2013
Flexicon has launched an all-new TIP-TITE Drum Dump Feeder that seals drums against a discharge cone, tips the drum and feeds bulk material into downstream equipment, dustfree at controlled rates. The drum platform is
The drum platform is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the rim of a drum and the underside of the discharge cone. A second hydraulic cylinder tips the platform-hood assembly and drum, stopping at dump angles of up to 90Â° with a motion-dampening feature. Material flowing through the discharge cone charges the intake adaptor of a cantilevered flexible screw conveyor that feeds downstream equipment volumetrically.
