Portable Sanitary Open-Chute Drum Dumper

BETHLEHEM, PA — A new Portable Sanitary Open-Chute Drum Dumper from Flexicon features stainless steel product contact surfaces finished to sanitary standards and a wash-down motor, providing a low cost means of discharging non-dusty bulk materials from drums without cross contamination.

A single hydraulic cylinder rotates the drum to 60° beyond horizontal, discharging material onto the product chute and into a receiving vessel. The
wide-diameter and polished surface of the chute allows contents of the drum to discharge freely regardless of particle size.

The unit accommodates drums of all popular sizes weighing up to 750 lb (340 kg), and can discharge directly into process equipment or optional hoppers equipped with outlets for pneumatic conveying systems, flexible screw conveyors or tubular cable conveyors.

Mounted on casters with quick-action floor jacks for stable operation, the dumper can be rolled to various use points throughout the plant, eliminating the need for multiple units.

Non-product contact surfaces are constructed of carbon steel with durable industrial coatings.
