Controlled Bulk Material Discharge
Fri, 11/13/2009 - 11:38am
The Box-Container Dumper from Flexicon is used to form a dust-tight seal between a container and the equipment, then tips the container and discharges bulk material through a chute at controlled rates. Trademarked as the TIP-TITE™, the dumper:
- Accommodates Gaylords and other boxes, including truncated corner boxes, from 36 in. to 48 in. (915 mm to 1220 mm) on a side and 39 in. to 44 in. (990 mm to 1117 mm) overall height.
- Uses twin hydraulic cylinders to pivot the platform-hood assembly, with container intact, to either 45, 60 or 90 degrees beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation.
- Has an optional, gasketted, top discharge gate actuated by twin pneumatic cylinders, which provides a large opening with chute for the passage of non-free-flowing bulk solids that may otherwise bridge across smaller openings.
- Has optional in stainless steel construction and receiving hoppers.
