Guarded Bin Tipper Description
This single pillar 400 Litre guarded bin tipper is designed to lift and tip at a discharge height of 5200mm. The capacity of this guarded bin tipper was rated at 300Kgs because the product being tipped was loose salad leaves. The guarded bin tipper is constructed from Grade 304 stainless steel and is fully TIG welded throughout. The lifting is achieved by a ¾” Simplex chain driven by a motor gearbox mounted at the top of the main column. The guarded bin tipper is designed to be bolted to the floor.
Safety Guard to PD 5304:2005 Safety of Machinery
The safety guard is constructed from 40 x 40 x 3mm stainless steel box section and 3mm wire, 40mm aperture stainless steel weld mesh to meet the requirements of PD 5304:2005 Safety of Machinery. It would enclose the guarded bin tipper to a height of 5770mm on three sides with a hinged door on the fourth side. The guard door is electrically and mechanically interlocked preventing the guarded bin tipper from operating with the door open. In addition, the guard door can only be opened when the lifting carriage is at the full down position. The guarded bin tipper control system has provision for a ‘Call for Product’ signal to be connected.
Guarded Bin Tipper Application Story
These guarded bin tippers were designed for a loose leaf salad processor to load product onto the beginning of their packing lines. Although the tote bins used had a 400 Litre capacity, when they were filled with loose leaf salads, the weight of product was only 100 Kgs. The control circuit on these guarded bin tippers was interfaced with the vibratory feed hopper and the tipper would stop at an intermediate limit switch just prior to the tipping cam unless a ‘call for product’ signal was being received. This ensured an automatic lift and tip operation and prevented the vibratory feed hopper from being over filled.
