This Box-Container Dumper from Flexicon forms a dust-tight seal between the container and the discharge hood, tips the container, and discharges bulk material through a chute at controlled rates.
Trademarked TIP-TITE®, the dumper accommodates Gaylords and other boxes, including truncated corner boxes, from 36 in. to 48 in. (915 mm to 1220 mm) on a side and 39 in. to 44 in. (990 mm to 1117 mm) overall height.
The container platform is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the top edge of a box and the underside of the discharge hood.
Twin hydraulic cylinders then pivot the platform-hood assembly, with container intact, to either 45, 60 or 90 degrees beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation.
An optional, gasketted, top discharge gate actuated by twin pneumatic cylinders, provides a large opening with chute for the passage of non-free-flowing bulk solids that may otherwise bridge across smaller openings, and allows control of the material discharge.
TIP-TITE® Box-Container Dumper from Flexicon forms a gasketted, dust-tight connection between the container and the equipment, tips the container to 60° past horizontal, and discharges bulk material through a chute at controlled rates.
