The unit is intended for dumping of bulk foods, pharmaceuticals and contamination-sensitive chemicals from boxes weighing up to 2500 lbs (1134 kg) and measuring 36 to 48 in. (915 to 1220 mm) on a side and 39 to 44 in. (990 to 1117 mm) in height.
The container platform is raised by dual hydraulic cylinders, creating a dust-tight seal between the top edge of a box and the underside of a discharge hood.
An optional, gasketted discharge gate actuated by twin pneumatic cylinders, provides a large opening with chute for the passage of larger objects or non-free-flowing bulk solids that may otherwise bridge across smaller openings, and allows control of the material discharge.
It is also available constructed of carbon steel with durable industrial coatings for dumping of dry solids, sludges and slurries from boxes, drums and other containers in less stringent environments, and is available configured with Flexicon mechanical or pneumatic conveyors to transport discharged material to any plant location.
TIP-TITE® Sanitary Box Dumper from Flexicon forms a gasketted, dust-tight connection between the container and the equipment, tips the container to 45, 60, or 90 degrees past horizontal, and discharges bulk material through a slide gate at controlled rates.
