With the Flexicon TIP-TITE drum dumper, a 30- to 55-gal. drum can be positioned on the platform, which is raised by a hydraulic cylinder, seating the rim against the circular end of the discharge transition. A second hydraulic cylinder tips the platform-hood assembly and drum. At full rotation, the transition outlet mates with the gasketed square inlet on the lid of the hopper or downstream process equipment, allowing a pneumatically actuated slide gate valve to be opened and closed for the total or partial discharge of free- and nonfree-flowing bulk solid materials.
