Bulk Material Dumper

The Flexicon bulk material dumper is designed for use with single or multiple containers or vessels.

Flexicon Open Chute Dumper

The Flexicon high-volume open-chute dumper allows the discharging of non-dusty, free-flowing, and/or agglomerated bulk materials from multiple drums or boxes simultaneously, as well as from Gaylords, totes, or bins individually.

The bed of the unit’s hydraulically tipped housing accommodates containers from 37 to 44 in. in height, having an individual or combined footprint of up to 6 x 8 ft. Typical applications for multiple containers include the simultaneous dumping of four 55-gal drums, or four boxes, each having a footprint from 36 to 48 in.

Pallets weighing up to 5,000 lb are forklift-loaded into the three-sided unit and secured, after which a grate is lowered onto the container(s) to prevent shifting. The lifting assembly is raised to a height of 77 in. and tipped hydraulically, causing material to slide through a smooth, three-sided chute into receiving vessels.

Twin hydraulic cylinders pivot the platform-chute assembly to discharge angles of 45 or 60 deg beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation. Impact-resistant side panels and custom guard panels with a light curtain ensure safe operation.

The dumper is available in heavy-duty, all-stainless construction to sanitary standards or in carbon steel with durable industrial coatings and stainless-steel material contact surfaces. It is also available with optional receiving hoppers configured with Flexicon mechanical or pneumatic conveyors to transport discharged material to any plant location.
