The Tip-Tite sanitary box dumper forms a dust-tight seal between the container and the equipment, tips the container, and discharges bulk material at controlled rates. The unit is intended for dumping of bulk foods, pharmaceuticals, and contamination-sensitive chemicals from boxes weighing up to 2500 lb and measuring 36-48 in. on a side and 39-44 in. high. The container platform is raised by dual hydraulic cylinders, creating a dust-tight seal between the top edge of a box and the underside of a discharge hood. Twin hydraulic cylinders then pivot the platform-hood assembly, with dust-tight seal intact, to 45, 60, or 90 degrees beyond horizontal, including a motion-dampening feature at the termination of container rotation. A pneumatically-actuated slide gate at the discharge end of the cone controls the flow of material into storage vessels or process equipment.
