Flexicon has announced an open-chute box dumper that offers a low-cost method of discharging bulk-solid materials from boxes, totes and other containers when dust containment is not a requirement.

The box-container dumper accommodates boxes and bins from 915mm to 1,220mm on their side and 990mm to 1,120mm overall height.

The box-container lift assembly is tipped hydraulically until material discharges from the container onto a smooth, flat chute that allows unobstructed discharge of free-flowing materials – as well as non-free-flowing products containing large agglomerates – into receiving vessels.

Twin hydraulic cylinders pivot the platform-chute assembly, with the container secured from sliding by transverse sidewall braces, to discharge angles of 45deg or 60deg beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation.

The dumper is available with stainless-steel material contact surfaces, in carbon steel with durable industrial coatings, or in an all-stainless construction to industrial and sanitary standards.

It is also available with optional receiving hoppers configured with the company’s mechanical or pneumatic conveyors to transport discharged material to any plant location.

The company also manufactures dust-tight dumpers for boxes, totes, drums and other bulk-solid containers, as well as box-tote-drum fillers.
