Dumpmaster Bin Tipper now with variable speed drive

The versatility of the Dumpmaster Bin Tipper has been enhanced with the addition of further intelligent design features.

Though primarily used for the tipping of mobile waste bins, Dumpmaster Bin Tippers have proven to be effective in a wide range of industries and applications that require the tipping or pouring of drums, vessels and tanks.

The Dumpmaster Bin Tipper is now available with the option of a programmable Variable Speed Drive (VSD).

This option was recently used in an application where a customer had a requirement to decant product at a relatively slow controlled rate out of a large square bins.

In this application the heavy duty MegaDumper was specified due to the heavy nature of the product.

The Variable Speed Drive enabled the MegaDumper to be programmed to accelerate up to full speed in 1sec then slowing down by 50 percent once the tipping motion starts then decreasing to 20 percent of full speed during the final tipping stage.

This feature can also be used in applications where a fast tipping speed is required initially then tapering off to a slow pour, much like petrol station pumps that allow fast but accurate filling of controlled amounts of product.

The Air-Powered option for the Dumpmaster has recently undergone further development. This option is primarily used for tipping applications in hazardous environments, instead of using explosion-proof electric components. The performance, operating speed, and noise level of air-powered machines is very similar to standard electric ones.

The machines still utilise hydraulics for lifting force, which give full and accurate control of the lifting and lowering functions.

The main difference is that the standard electric motor is replaced with an air motor, which drives the hydraulic pump in the same way as usual.

If air pressure is lost for any reason, there is no risk of the load coming down in an uncontrolled way. (The load can still be lowered without air pressure, as lowering is done with a manually-operated valve).

Apart from the air-preparation unit, the machines are almost indistinguishable from standard ones, and have the same intuitive controls.

An on-board filter/regulator and lubricator, and a silencer keeps the noise level to around 60dB.
