Flexicon Open Chute Box Dumper

June 2, 2010
Flexicon launches the Open Chute Box Dumper, which discharges bulk solid materials from boxes, totes and other containers.

The Open Chute Box Dumper accommodates gaylords and other boxes from 36 inches to 48 inches (915 mm to 1220 mm) in width and 39 inches to 44 inches (990 mm to 1117 mm) in overall height. The box-container lift assembly is tipped hydraulically until material releases from the container onto a smooth, flat chute and into receiving vessels.

The Open Chute Box Dumper uses twin hydraulic cylinders to pivot the platform-chute assembly and discharge at angles of 45 or 60 degrees beyond horizontal, while using sidewall braces to stop the container from sliding. The dumper is available with stainless-steel material contact surfaces, in carbon steel with industrial coatings or in all-stainless construction to meet industrial and sanitary standards. Optional receiving hoppers transport discharged material to any plant location.
