Ready to plug in and run, it is mounted on a mobile frame with quick-action floor jacks for stable operation anywhere in the plant.
A hydraulic cylinder raises the drum carriage which seals the drum rim against a discharge cone, after which a second hydraulic cylinder tips the carriage-hood assembly and drum, stopping at a predetermined dump angle
As the assembly approaches its fully-tipped position, the outlet of the discharge cone mates with a gasketed receiving-ring inlet fitted to existing process equipment or to the lid of an optional hopper with integral pneumatic, tubular cable or flexible screw conveyor, creating a dust-tight seal.
Once the discharge cone is seated against the gasket, a pneumatically-actuated slide gate valve opens, allowing material to enter the receiving vessel.
An optional pneumatically-actuated vibrator on the discharge cone promotes complete evacuation of non-free-flowing materials.
The drum dumper is available constructed of mild steel with durable industrial finishes, with material contact surfaces of stainless steel, or in all-stainless steel finished to food, dairy, pharmaceutical or industrial standards.
Ready to plug in and run anywhere in the plant, Flexicon's TIP-TITE® Mobile Drum Dumper seals the drum rim against a discharge cone, tips the drum, mates the cone against a gasketed connection, and discharges bulk material dust-free through a pneumatically-actuated discharge gate.
