Drum Dumper Mates With Low-Height Receiving Vessels

Press release date: Nov 15, 2017

A new TIP-TITE® Drum Dumper for 30 to 55 gallon (115 to 200 liter) drums features an elongated discharge cone that mates with the gasketed inlet of low-height receiving vessels, allowing dust-free transfer of free-flowing bulk solid materials.

Housed within a three-sided safety enclosure with safety interlocked doors, 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.

With drum secured in place, a second hydraulic cylinder tips the platform-hood assembly, stopping at a dump angle of 45 degrees with a motion-dampening feature, causing the spout of the discharge cone to mate with a gasketed receiving ring on the lid of a low-height receiving vessel. A pneumatically actuated slide gate at the spout can be opened variably for partial or total discharge at controlled rates, and then closed before returning the drum to its original position, with no dust emitted throughout the cycle.

Available in stationary and mobile configurations, the Drum Dumper is offered in carbon steel with durable industrial finishes, with material contact surfaces of stainless steel or in all-stainless steel finished to food, dairy, pharmaceutical or industrial standards. A diameter adapter allows for the safe and dust-tight dumping of smaller-diameter drums.

The company also manufactures high-lift drum dumpers, drum fillers, box/container dumpers, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag fillers, flexible screw conveyors, tubular cable conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, bag dump stations, weigh batching and blending systems, and engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
