A new sanitary TIP-TITE High-Lift Box/Container Dumper from Flexicon, Bethlehem, Pa., discharges dust-free into vessels 6-10 feet above the plant floor.
Boxes and other containers are loaded at floor level and hydraulically seated against a discharge hood. The assembly is then hydraulically elevated and tipped, causing the discharge hood spout to seat against a gasketed receiving ring installed on any receiving vessel or process equipment. Opening of a pneumatically actuated slide gate valve at the spout outlet allows controlled, dust-free discharge, while closing it allows partially empty boxes and containers to be returned to the plant floor.
The unit accommodates Gaylords and other boxes from 36-48 inches on a side and 39-44 inches to overall height.
Constructed of stainless steel finished to food standards, the unit is engineered to perform with fail-safe reliability under constant use in demanding environments.
