Drum discharging system - DrumFlow® 04

The drum tipper allows a completely confined emptying by capping and tight connection. This equipment is suitable for the handling of chemicals

A mechanized roller conveyor transports the drums towards the unloading station. Positioning stops are provided. Once the drum is positioned, the operator can start the tipping cycle.
The capping cycle consists of mounting the drum to the stop on the capping cone. The drum is then pinched between the tray and the styling cone. Bars attached to the cone penetrate the drum to prevent the internal bag from turning over during tipping.

Then, the turning cycle is to rotate the whole barrel + styling cone with  drain piping  . This tipping is provided by the second cylinder. The mobile assembly comes into contact with the rubber studs provided for this purpose.
The end of the drain piping is vertical at the end of tilting and it enters a socket joint, located on the powder inlet of the hopperOnce drained, the mobile assembly returns to its initial position by performing the 2 reverse tilting and stripping movements. A push cylinder allows the drum to be transferred to the motorized conveyor.

The entire drum tipper can be installed inside a safety enclosure, preventing any cycle start as long as the door of the enclosure remains open. This cabin, equipped with an access door, also optimizes the containment of the emptying station. It is also possible to install a glove box to allow the opening of the drums without entering the cabin.

Technical specification

Examples of results obtained:

Rate 1 drum / 4-5 min
Capacity 250 kg/ drum
Manufacturing materials Painted steel/stainless steel structure
Inclination Up to 180°
Tilting of the drum Electric motor 7,5 kW
Drum capping Pneumatic cylinder with overpressure leak test
Connection to the drain By low pressure inflatable seal
Butterfly drain valve DN150
Flow aid Fluidizer on drain cone, vibrator on cone and drum bottom


Typical operating mode :

Step 1: Installation of the drum on the infeed conveyor and on the tipping chair

Step 2: Drum capping by mounting the chair on the containment cone. The internal forks of the cone prevent the reversal of the bag. 
Step 3: Tipping of the drum

Step 4: Connection to the hopper with an inflatable seal and open the drain valves.
