BETHLEHEM, Pa.—Flexicon has developed a new pail dumper, which dumps pails containing high density bulk solid materials into downstream processing or storage vessels dust free.
The Tip-Tite Pail Dumper accommodates pails of up to five gallons and is intended for powder metals, chemicals, pigments, minerals and other heavy, dense bulk solids. The unit features dual hydraulic cylinders that work in tandem to raise and seat the pail rim against a specially configured, elongated discharge cone, and then tips the pail to an angle of 45, 60 or 90 degrees with a motion-dampening feature.
Flexicon said an optional pneumatically actuated vibrator on the discharge cone promotes complete evacuation of non-free-flowing materials. The pail dumper is made of carbon steel with durable industrial finishes, and its material contact surfaces are stainless steel.
Other models are available in all-stainless steel finishes that meet food, dairy, pharmaceutical or industrial standards.
