Drum Dump Feeder Discharges, Feeds Volumetrically To Equipment
Flexicon's Self-contained Drum Dump Feeder discharges bulk material from drums and feeds it volumetrically to downstream equipment.
An all-new TIP-TITE Drum Dump Feeder from Flexicon seals drums against a discharge cone, tips the drum and feeds bulk material into downstream equipment, dust-free at controlled rates.
The drum platform is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the rim of a 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 Dump Feeder is offered with cantilevered flexible screw conveyors in custom lengths oriented horizontally (shown), or at an incline, for the purpose of elevating, as well as metering, the material.
Gentle rolling action of the flexible screw conveyor in an enclosed tube reduces agglomerates discharged from drums, improving feed rate accuracy.
