The TIP-TITE drum dumping system automatically rolls drums containing bulk material onto the dumping station platform, where a hydraulic cylinder raises and seats the drum rim against a discharge hood. A second hydraulic cylinder then tips the drum to a 45-, 60- or 90-deg angle with a motion-dampening feature. At full rotation, the slide gate opens to discharge the material into downstream process equipment. After the empty container is returned to its upright position, the rolling motion is reversed, and the container is halted in front of a pneumatically actuated pusher, which transfers the empty drum to the return conveyor for removal.
