Flexicon’s Tip-Tite high-lift box/container dumper provides dust-free operation while discharging into vessels from 6 to 10 ft. (183 to 305cm) above the plant floor. The dumper allows boxes and other containers to be loaded at floor level, sealed against a discharge hood, elevated and tipped, mating the hood outlet to a gasketed inlet port fitted to any receiving vessel. The unit accommodates Gaylords and other boxes from 36 to 48 in. (915mm to 1,220mm) on a side and 39 to 44 in. (990mm to 1,117mm) overall height. The container platform is raised by a single hydraulic cylinder, creating a dust-tight seal between the top edge of the container and the underside of the discharge hood. A second hydraulic cylinder raises the platform-hood assembly vertically before tipping it to a motion-dampened stop at 60° beyond horizontal, causing the vertically oriented hood outlet to mate with the receiving vessel’s horizontally oriented inlet port.
