Safer Automated Drum Tumbling; Video Available

March 9, 2010
An advanced automated control package that can increases productivity and safety is now available for Morse Tilt-To-Load drum rotators. A new video demonstrates this automated drum lifting, rotating for operator-set time, and return of drum to upright position at floor-level for easy handling. A safety interlock on the heavy-duty enclosure automatically shuts down the rotator if the gate is opened, in accordance with OSHA requirements. The operator can set rotation time anywhere from a few seconds to 99 hours, start the machine, and walk away to tumble steel, plastic, or fiber drums from 29 to 37 in. high and from 18 to 23.5 in. in diam. at 5 to 20 RPM.
