Open chute box dumper

11 August 2010

Flexicon (Europe) has announced an open chute box dumper said to offer a safe, low-cost method of discharging bulk solid materials from boxes, totes and other containers when dust containment isn't a requirement

The box-container dumper accommodates boxes & bins from 915mm to 1220mm on a side and 990mm to 1120mm overall height.

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 45 or 60 degrees beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation.

The dumper is available with stainless steel material contact surfaces (shown), in carbon steel with durable industrial coatings, or in all-stainless construction to industrial and sanitary standards.

It is also available with optional receiving hoppers configured with the company's mechanical (shown) or pneumatic conveyors to transport discharged material to any plant location.

The company also manufactures dust-tight dumpers for boxes, totes, drums and other bulk solid containers, as well as box-tote-drum fillers.
