Flexicon Dumper

TIP-TITE dumperThe TIP-TITE™ dumper accommodates gaylords and other boxes, including truncated corner boxes, from 36 to 48 in. in length and 39 to 44 in. in overall height. The container platform is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the top edge of a box (or rim of a drum) and the underside of the containment hood. Twin hydraulic cylinders then pivot the platform-hood assembly, with the container intact, to either 45, 60 or 90 deg beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation. An optional, gasketted, top discharge gate, actuated by twin pneumatic cylinders, provides a large opening with a chute for the passage of non-free-flowing bulk solids that may otherwise bridge across smaller openings, and the gate allows control of the material discharge. The dumper can be constructed of stainless steel for food, dairy, pharmaceutical or industrial applications (shown), and of mild steel with durable industrial coatings.
