Drum manipulator - Vacuum tube lifter avoiding any risk of the drum falling
A lateral suction seal system allows the operator to rotate the drum completely and effortlessly. Safety is optimal in order to avoid the risk of the drum falling.
Market leader for 25 years in the design, manufacture and engineering of raw ingredients and bulk materials handling systems, Palamatic Process is now an expert in vacuum lifting. Thanks to the use of Palamatic Process handling systems, the drum is effortlessly lifted by a single operator.
When the contents of the drums have to be discharged directly into the process, our lateral suction seal system allows a complete rotation of the drum. The drum manipulator therefore allows the drum to be tilted and turned in a very optimal way for the operator. Palamatic Process has also developed a self-balancing system to compensate for the weight loss of the drum during the unloading process. With our many options available, the operator can fully or partially empty the contents of the industrial drums.
A safety system is integrated into all systems and protects the operator in the event of a power failure: the tube expands slowly and the load is gently laid on the ground. There is no risk of the load falling.
