Single Pillar 45 Gallon Drum Tipper

45 Gallon Drum Tipper Description

BTM/250/1400/B/G

This 45 Gallon drum tipper is a single pillar drum tipper that is designed to lift and tip at a discharge height of 1400mm. The 45 Gallon drum tipper is constructed from Grade 304 stainless steel, is fully TIG welded throughout and will operate on a 'dead mans handle' principle. Lifting with the 45 Gallon drum tipper is achieved by a ¾” Simplex chain driven by a motor gearbox mounted at the top of the main column. The 45 Gallon drum 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 encloses the 45 Gallon drum tipper to a height of 2200mm on two sides, 1400mm at the front, with a hinged door on the fourth side. The guard door is electrically and mechanically interlocked preventing the 45 Gallon drum 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 45 Gallon drum tipper control system has provision for a ‘Call for Product’ signal to be connected.

45 Gallon Drum Tipper Application Story

This 45 Gallon drum tipper was used to lift and tip a solid 45 Gallon drum full of margarine into a melting vessel. Because the margarine was a solid core, the drum had to be retained with a clamping mechanism. This clamping mechanism had to be monitored via a magnetic guard switch to ensure that the clamp was closed prior to lifting and tipping.
