Sanitary high-lift box/container dumper

March 6, 2017   Don Horne




This new sanitary TIP-TITE High-Lift Box/Container Dumper from Flexicon discharges dust-free into vessels 6 to 10 ft (1830 to 3050 mm) above the plant floor. Boxes and other containers are loaded at floor level and hydraulically seated against a discharge hood. The assembly is then hydraulically elevated and tipped, causing the discharge hood spout to seat against a gasketed receiving ring installed on any receiving vessel or process equipment. Opening of a pneumatically actuated slide gate valve at the spout outlet allows controlled, dust-free discharge, while closing it allows partially empty boxes and containers to be returned to the plant floor.
