Dust-tight mobile drum tipper
A TIP-Tite mobile drum tipper from Felxicon allows dust-free transfer of bulk materials from drums into process equipment and storage vessels. Ready to plug in and run, it is mounted on a mobile frame with quick-action floor jacks for stable operation anywhere in the plant. A hydraulic cylinder raises the drum carriage which seals the drum rim against a discharge cone, after which a second hydraulic cylinder tips the carriage-hood assembly and drum, stopping at a predetermined dump angle of either 45°, 60° or 90° with a motion-dampening feature.
As the assembly approaches its fully-tipped position, the outlet of the discharge cone mates with a gasketed receiving-ring inlet fitted to existing process equipment or to the lid of an optional hopper with integral pneumatic, tubular cable or flexible screw conveyor, creating a dust-tight seal. Once the discharge cone is seated against the gasket, a pneumatically-actuated slide gate valve opens, allowing material to enter the receiving vessel. The unit accommodates drums from 114 to 208 l weighing up to 340 kg. An optional pneumatically-actuated vibrator on the discharge cone promotes complete evacuation of non-free-flowing materials.
