Flexicon Corporation (Australia) introduces the new TIP-TITE high-lift box/ container tippers designed to discharge dust-free into vessels 183cm to 305cm above the plant floor.
The high-lift tippers allow boxes and other containers to be loaded at floor level, sealed against a discharge hood, elevated and tipped, mating the hood outlet to a gasketted inlet port fitted to any receiving vessel.
The unit accommodates boxes measuring 915mm to 1220mm on a side with overall height of 990mm to 1117mm.
The container platform is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the top edge of the container and the underside of the discharge hood.
A second hydraulic cylinder raises the platform-hood assembly vertically, before tipping it to a motion-dampened stop at 60 degrees beyond horizontal, causing the vertically-oriented hood outlet to mate with the receiving vessel's horizontally-oriented inlet port.
A pneumatic or manual slide gate valve prevents material flow until the discharge cone has been properly seated, and allows discharging at controlled rates.
Key features of the TIP-TITE high-lift box tippers:
- Constructed of carbon steel with stainless material contact surfaces
- Also available in all-carbon-steel construction with durable industrial coatings
- Alternatively available in all-stainless construction finished to food, pharmaceutical or industrial standards
- Optional receiving hoppers configured with the company's mechanical or pneumatic conveyors are available to transport discharged material to any plant location
Flexicon also manufactures drum tippers, drum fillers, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag fillers, bag dump stations as well as weigh batching and blending systems in addition to bulk handling systems with automated controls.
