Flexicon (Europe)'s new sanitary high lift drum dumper allows drums to be loaded at floor level, sealed against a discharge cone, elevated and tipped, mating the cone to a gasketted receiving ring on downstream proces
The TIP-TITE unit accommodates drums from 115 to 210L and can discharge bulk material into process vessels and equipment inlets 1525 to 3050mm above the plant floor.
The drum platform is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the rim of a drum and the underside of the discharge cone. A second hydraulic cylinder raises the platformhood assembly vertically before tipping it to a dump angle of 90Â°, causing the vertically oriented cone to mate with a sealed receiving ring.
