National Bulk Equipment’s process-specific sanitary bulk container dumper is designed and built to the particular sanitary operating processes and practices of an application to ensure optimal compliance contribution (OCC). The construction of the sanitary bulk container dumper meets the FDA, cGMP definition for cleanability according to 21CFR110.40, and has design features that proactively facilitate thorough cleaning and meet or reduce target cleaning times. Features include the elimination of internal angles, corners and dead spaces to avoid accumulation of contaminants; angled-planes, rounded-radius framework, highly finished plate and stand-offs to reduce material build-up and speed material and moisture runoff away from product contact areas; and component frameworks cut from plate to eliminate exposed fasteners, joints and crevices common with tubular assemblies. The sanitary container dumper, which can run continuously, is constructed of 6- x 4- x 5/16-in. structural framework, and has a lift carriage capacity in excess of 2,500 lbs. per 135° rotation. Hermetically sealed connectors and components are protected from corrosion and high temperature. US- and European-compliant controls enable simple integration to any facility’s SCADA system.
