WACOL, QLD, AUS--An all-new TIP-TITE® Sanitary Box Tipper from Flexicon forms a dust-tight seal between the container and the equipment, tips the container, and discharges bulk material at controlled rates. The unit is intended for tipping of bulk foods, pharmaceuticals and contamination-sensitive chemicals from boxes weighing up to 1134 kg and measuring 915 to 1220 mm on a side and 990 to 1117 mm in height. The container platform is raised by dual hydraulic cylinders, creating a dust-tight seal between the top edge of a box and the underside of a discharge hood. Twin hydraulic cylinders then pivot the platform-hood assembly, with dust-tight seal intact, to 45, 60 or 90 degrees beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation. A pneumatically-actuated slide gate at the discharge end of the cone controls the flow of material into storage vessels or process equipment. An optional, gasketted discharge gate actuated by twin pneumatic cylinders, provides a large opening with chute for the passage of larger objects or non-free-flowing bulk solids that may otherwise bridge across smaller openings, and allows control of the material discharge. The tipper is constructed of stainless steel with continuous welds ground and polished to sanitary standards. All horizontal frame members are fabricated of round stainless steel tubing to promote water run-off in wash-down environments. Other sanitary features include capped threads, sloped-top control enclosures, guarding standoff brackets and food-grade epoxy paint on hydraulic cylinders. It is also available constructed of carbon steel with durable industrial coatings for tipping of dry solids, sludges and slurries from boxes, drums and other containers in less stringent environments, and is available configured with Flexicon mechanical or pneumatic conveyors to transport discharged material to any plant location. The company also manufactures drum fillers, bulk bag fillers, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag dischargers, bag dump stations, weigh batching and blending systems, and engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
