Unit Automates Dumping of Mobile Bins

Isolates material from the plant environment

Flexicon Open Chute High Lift Bin Dumper

Constructed of stainless steel finished to food and dairy standards, the Flexicon open-chute high-lift bin dumper is suitable for mobile bins up to 3,000 lb in weight. It hydraulically lifts each bin up to 10 ft above floor level, opens the gate-style lid of the 60-cu-ft capacity receiving hopper, dumps the contents into the hopper, and returns the bin to the plant floor as the hopper lid closes. The receiving hopper includes a vibratory bottom to promote the passage of non-free-flowing material through flexible downspouting into the material charging area of the flexible screw conveyor operating under loss-of-weight control.

Make plans to visit PACK EXPO East in Philadelphia, March 3-5, to see on-trend food processing and packaging machinery and materials.
