Dust-free drum dumping/drum tipping

The system is designed for handling drums of toxic, volatile or dusty materials.  The lid of the drum is removed and replaced with a special cone adaptor which incorporates a valve.  The drum is then elevated, inverted and locked into a receiving hopper forming a dust-tight seal.  The valve is opened allowing the drum contents to empty into the feed hopper and integral conveyor.
