Flexicon's Open Chute Box Dumper offers a safe, low cost method of discharging bulk solid materials from boxes and other containers when dust containment is not a requirement.
The dumper accommodates Gaylords and other 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 box-container lift assembly is tipped hydraulically until material discharges from the container onto a smooth, flat chute that allows unobstructed discharge of free-flowing materials — as well as non-free-flowing products containing large agglomerates — into receiving vessels.
Twin hydraulic cylinders pivot the platform-chute assembly, with the container secured from sliding by transverse sidewall braces, to discharge angles of 45 or 60 degrees beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation.
The dumper is available in carbon steel with durable industrial coatings, with stainless steel material contact surfaces (shown), or in all-stainless construction to industrial and sanitary standards.
It is also available with optional receiving hoppers configured with the company's mechanical (shown) or pneumatic conveyors to transport discharged material to any plant location.
