Drum Dump Feeder Is Available In Stationary And Mobile Configurations
A new Tip-Tite drum dump feeder from Flexicon seals drums against a discharge cone. It also tips the drum and feeds bulk material into downstream equipment dust-free at controlled rates.
The drum platform is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the rim of a drum and the underside of the discharge cone. A second hydraulic cylinder tips the platform-hood assembly and drum, stopping at dump angles of up to 90 degrees with a motion-dampening feature. Material flowing through the discharge cone charges the intake adapter of a cantilevered flexible screw conveyor that feeds downstream equipment volumetrically.
Available in stationary and mobile configurations, the drum dump feeder is offered with cantilevered flexible screw conveyors in custom lengths oriented horizontally or at an incline for the purpose of elevating, as well as metering, the material. Gentle rolling action of the flexible screw conveyor in an enclosed tube reduces agglomerates discharged from drums, potentially improving feed rate accuracy.
Pre-engineered, pre-wired and ready to plug in and run, the system accommodates drums from 30 to 55 gallons (114 to 208 liters) and is available in carbon steel with durable industrial finishes, stainless-steel material contact surfaces or in a complete stainless-steel finish for food, dairy, pharmaceutical or industrial standards.
