A new box-container dumper from Flexicon Corp. forms a dust-tight seal between the container and the equipment, tips the container and discharges bulk material through a chute at controlled rates.

Called Tip-Tite, the dumper accommodates Gaylords and other boxes, including truncated corner boxes, from 36 inches to 48 inches (915 mm to 1220 mm) on a side and 39 inches to 44 inches (990 mm to 1117 mm) overall height.

The container platform is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the top edge of a box (or rim of a drum) and the underside of the containment hood. Twin hydraulic cylinders then pivot the platform-hood assembly, with container intact, to 45, 60 or 90 degrees beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation.

An optional, gasketted, top discharge gate actuated by twin pneumatic cylinders provides a large opening with chute for the passage of non-free-flowing bulk solids that may otherwise bridge across smaller openings, and allows control of the material discharge.
