The Sanitary High Lift Drum Dumper allows drums to be loaded at floor level, sealed against a discharge cone, elevated and tipped.

This mates the cone to a gasketted receiving ring on downstream process equipment.

Trademarked Tip-Tite, the dumper accommodates drums from 115 to 210l and can discharge bulk material into process vessels and equipment inlets that are 1,525 to 3,050mm above the plant floor.

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 raises the platform-hood assembly vertically before tipping it to a dump angle of 90deg, causing the vertically oriented cone to mate with a sealed receiving ring.

The ring can be fitted to the lid of an optional hopper with integral flexible screw conveyor or pneumatic pick-up adapter, or to existing process equipment.

A pneumatically actuated slide-gate valve prevents material flow until the discharge cone has been properly seated in the receiving ring.

The all-stainless unit can be finished to sanitary or industrial standards.

Other models are offered in mild steel with durable industrial coatings, or with material contact surfaces of stainless steel.
