Drum Dumpers, Tilters and Tippers

Overview
Drum dumpers, tilters and tippers are used in a variety of ways during industrial production. They are ideal for charging coaters; filling hoppers, reactors and other process vessels; dispensing applications; and discharging powders, granules, pellets and tablets.

Regardless of the unit you choose, Meto Lift’s dumpers, tilters and tippers include stainless steel construction with an upgradable finish; non-marking, white polyolefin wheels; powered floor-locking devices; and mounted, push-button controls.

Tippers are used to position the drum downward, so the product can be easily discharged through a bung in the head of the drum. Stainless steel tippers are typically used when drums contain liquids.

Tilters are used to position the drum at an angle to control the discharge of material (usually powders). Stainless steel tilters work best to provide a slight angle to ease the transition of the material and allow for scooping from the drum. They can also be angled more steeply so substances can be “raked” out as the material is emptied.

Dumpers are typically used to fully empty the contents of a drum containing powders or pellets. Usually, the drum is lifted and then angled above a specific receiving container or piece of processing equipment. Stainless steel dumpers can be configured with or without chutes or cones. Chutes direct an open discharge out and over a receiving port, while cones—when combined with Meto Lift’s patented discharge valves—create a closed transfer that enhances dust control.

Customization
Meto Lift offers a variety of configurations to fit the needs of our customers, and our equipment can accommodate every sort of application—from a controlled flow to complete emptying.

Custom options include fittings for multiple simultaneous discharges, custom chute configurations (straight, tapered, necked), a variety of surface finishes, right or left discharge, sanitary roller slot cover and increased lift capacity (standard capacity is 150 kg (330 lbs). Our dumping, tilting and tipping equipment is also available in mobile or stationary designs.

When controlled product flow or precise dumping is called for, consider one of Meto Lift’s dumpers, tilters or tippers. Our equipment can be customized for your operation and application requirements and can handle drums, boxes and pails of all types and sizes.
