Flexicon's Bulk Filling System with TIP-TITE® High-Lift Drum Dumper automatically transfers bulk solid materials from drums to the machine's fill head dust-free, fills pails by weight and verifies fill weight accuracy.
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. The entire drum carriage elevates hydraulically, then tips, causing the discharge cone to mate with a gasketted inlet port on the filling machine's surge hopper lid. A slide gate valve at the cone spout is then actuated, allowing material to fill the hopper with no dusting.
Pails are indexed by a roller conveyor with photo-eyes, filled by a rotary valve under gain-in-weight-control, and conveyed to a second scale for check weighing.
Structural members including a drum safety cage are of mild steel with durable industrial coating, and material contact surfaces are of stainless steel.
