Bulk Filling System with High-lift Drum Dumper

A new Flexicon Bulk Filling System with High-Lift Drum Dumper automatically transfers bulk solid materials from drums to the machine's fill head dust-free, fills pails by weight and verifies fill weight accuracy.

Drums are loaded at floor level onto a platen that lifts hydraulically to form a dust-tight seal between the drum lip and gasketted discharge cone. The
entire drum carriage elevates hydraulically, then tips, causing the discharge cone to mate with a gasketted receiving ring on the filling machine's surge hopper lid. A slide gate valve at the cone spout is then actuated, allowing material to fill the hopper with no dusting.

Pails are indexed by a roller conveyor with photo-eyes, filled by a rotary valve
under gain-in-weight-control, and conveyed to a second scale for check weighing.

Structural members including a drum safety cage are of mild steel with durable industrial coating, and material contact surfaces are of stainless steel.
