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.

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.
Example of installation
- Processed powder: Potassium Bi-Fluoride - Drum and bag handling in the nuclear sector: 25kg kraft paper bags with an inner liner and 90kg drums with an inner liner.
- Processed powder: sodium methylate - Contained discharge of chemical powder - The process consists in safely unloading drums containing sodium methylate in a Class 1 / Division 2 hazardous environment...
