Discharge of bulk solids

New from Flexicon (Europe) is an Open Chute Box Dumper that offers a safe, low cost method of discharging bulk solid materials from boxes, totes and other containers when dust containment is not a requirement. The un
The box-container lift assembly is tipped hydraulically until material discharges from the container onto a smooth, flat chute that allows unobstructed discharge of freeflowing materials - as well as nonfree- flowing products containing large agglomerates - into receiving vessels.
Twin hydraulic cylinders pivot the platform-chute assembly, with the container secured from sliding by transverse sidewall braces, to discharge angles of 45 or 60Â° beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation.
