An all-new Open Chute Box Tipper from Flexicon Corporation (Australia) provides a safe method of discharging bulk solid materials from boxes, totes and other containers when dust containment isn’t required.
The box-container lift assembly is tipped hydraulically until material discharges from the container onto a smooth, flat chute that allows unobstructed discharge of free-flowing materials―as well as non-free-flowing products containing large agglomerates―into receiving vessels.
Twin hydraulic cylinders pivot the platform-chute assembly, with the container secured from sliding by transverse sidewall braces, to discharge angles of 45º or 60º beyond the horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation.
The box tippers are available with stainless steel material contact surfaces, in carbon steel with durable industrial coatings, or in all-stainless construction to industrial and hygienic standards.
The box tippers accommodate boxes from 915 mm - 1220 mm on a side and 990 mm - 1117 mm overall height. The box tippers are also available with optional receiving hoppers configured with the company's mechanical or pneumatic conveyors to transport discharged material to any plant location.
