The Flexicon TIP-TITE mobile drum dumper transfers bulk materials from drums into process equipment and storage vessels; it is mounted on a mobile frame with floor jacks for stable operation. A hydraulic cylinder raises the drum carriage and seals the drum rim against a discharge cone. Then, a second hydraulic cylinder tips the carriage-hood assembly and drum, stopping at a predetermined dump angle. The outlet of the discharge cone mates with a gasketed receiving-ring inlet fitted to existing process equipment or to the lid of an optional hopper with an integral pneumatic, tubular cable or flexible screw conveyor. The pneumatically actuated slide gate valve opens to allow material to enter the receiving vessel.
