Flexicon: High Capacity Tipper for mobile Bins

Whitstable, United Kingdom – A new open-chute High-Lift Bin Tipper from Flexicon hydraulically raises and dumps mobile bins into a hopper that feeds an integral flexible screw conveyor operating under loss-of-weight control. Bins weighing up to 1350 kg are rolled into a three-sided pen, where a lifting tongue centred inboard of the castors raises and seats the rim of the bin against a grate which, together with panelled side bracing, steadies the bin during the dumping cycle, and directs the discharge path of material.
