The ‘open-chute’ and ‘lift-and-seal’ drum dumper models from Flexicon Corporation can accommodate all drum sizes and are available in carbon steel with durable industrial finishes, or in stainless steel with material contact surfaces finished to industrial, food or pharmaceutical standards.

All drum dumper models can discharge directly into process equipment or into hoppers equipped with outlets for connection to Flexicon flexible screw or pneumatic conveyors, or to other process equipment.

Lift-and-seal drum dumpers eliminate dust and enable customers to load, seal, tip and discharge drums with no dusting.

A hydraulic lift automatically forms a dust-tight seal between the drum lip and the discharge cone.

The assembly is tipped hydraulically causing the cone to mate with the gasketted receiving ring that is fitted to process equipment or the lid of an optional Flexicon hopper, eliminating the need for connecting sleeves and clamps.

Optional hopper with Flexicon flexible screw conveyor adapter is also available with universal flanged outlet or Flexicon pneumatic pick-up adapter.

Flexicon Corporation open chute drum dumpers offer an economical method of discharging from drums when dust generation is not a concern. The drum lift assembly is raised hydraulically until material discharges from the drum, down onto the chute, and into a receiving vessel.

The smooth, wide-diameter product chute allows unobstructed discharge of free-flowing materials along with non-free-flowing products containing large agglomerates.

It is also fully accessible and free of crevices, allowing rapid, thorough cleaning. Optional hopper with Flexicon non-flow-through pneumatic pick-up adapter is also available with universal flanged outlet or Flexicon flexible screw conveyor adapter.
