Whitstable, Kent, U.K. ⎯ A new TIP-TITE® Drum Tipper for 115 to 200 liter drums manufactured by Flexicon features an elongated discharge cone that mates with the gasketed inlet of low-height receiving vessels, allowing dust-free transfer of free-flowing bulk solid materials.
Housed within a three-sided safety enclosure with safety interlocked doors, 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.
Simatek Bulk Systems A/S is a company specialised in the mechanical conveying of fragile products. A long-running development process on the elevators has resulted in a broad variety of pendulum bucket elevators which have been customised according to the comprehensive demands of the industry to in-house transportation of fragile products.
