With the Flexicon TIP-TITE drum dumper with an integral flexible screw conveyor, a hydraulic cylinder raises and seats the drum rim against a discharge cone. Then, a second hydraulic cylinder tips the drum to an angle of 45 deg, 60 deg or 90 deg with a motion-dampening feature. At full rotation, a pneumatically actuated slide gate valve opens and charges the conveyor, which meters the material volumetrically according to infinitely adjustable user controls. As the flexible screw rotates, it self-centers within the tube to eliminate or minimize grinding. The conveyor transports bulk materials from submicron powders to large pellets.
Accommodates 30- to 55-gal. drums measuring 36- to 48-in. high
