Flexicon Mobile Tip Tite Drum Dumper

The Flexicon drum dumper has a three-sided carbon-steel safety cage mounted on a mobile frame with jack screws. Allowing hands-free, automated dumping of bulk solid materials from 30- to 55-gal drums, the mobile TIP-TITE drum dumper includes a platform that raises the drum hydraulically, which creates a dust-tight seal between the rim of the drum and the underside of the discharge cone. A second hydraulic cylinder then tips the platform-hood assembly, stopping it at 45-, 60-, or 90-degree dump angles, causing the spout of the discharge cone to mate with a gasketed receiving ring on the lid of an enclosed hopper that charges a flexible screw conveyor. A pneumatically actuated slide gate at the spout can be opened once the discharge cone has sealed to the receiving ring to discharge material and then is closed before returning the drum to its original position.
