TIP-TITE drum dump feeders are designed to seal drums against a discharge cone, tip the drum and feed bulk material into downstream equipment in a dust-free process at controlled rates.
Pre-engineered, pre-wired and ready to plug in and run, the drum dump system accommodates drums from 114 litres to 208 litres and is offered in options such as carbon steel with durable industrial finish, stainless steel for material contact surfaces or all-stainless steel finish to meet food, dairy, pharmaceutical or industrial standards.
The drum platform of these drum dump feeders is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder creating a dust-tight seal between the rim of the drum and the underside of the discharge cone.
A second hydraulic cylinder tips the platform-hood assembly and drum, stopping at dump angles of up to 90 degrees with a motion-dampening feature. Material flowing through the discharge cone charges the intake adapter of a cantilevered flexible screw conveyor that feeds downstream equipment volumetrically.
Available in stationary and mobile configurations, the drum feeders are supplied with cantilevered flexible screw conveyors in custom lengths oriented horizontally or at an incline for the purpose of elevating as well as metering the material.
The gentle rolling action of the flexible screw conveyor in an enclosed tube reduces agglomerates discharged from drums and improves feed rate accuracy.
The company also manufactures pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag fillers, bag dump stations, drum/box/container tippers, drum fillers, weigh batching and blending systems as well as engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
