There are multiple reasons to use a portable dumper equipment solution. Processors with quick turn batches and reoccurring recipe changes benefit from a portable dumper to use in multiple production areas. Some processors prefer to move equipment to designated sanitation areas. Also, the column dumper must be portable and move out of the way for mixers that require clearance for tipping hoppers to unload.
Another feature on the column dumper is an extended chute integrated with a 60-degree dump angle. The extended chute covers the gap between the column dumper and the mixer when the components prevent a close fit.
This processor utilized a 60-degree dump angle because the application required that every particulate was added to the batch.
Personnel guarding featured on this column dumper is designed for visibility and access with safety relays that provide safe fork truck access.
Reliably Built Standard Features:
- 10-ga stainless on 120” dump heights, 7-ga stainless on 144” column heights
- Full penetration welds
- Built-in safety features including (3) proximity switches, e-stop
- Completely wired motor starter in NEMA 4X enclosure
- Minimum maintenance on broken motor, chain, bearings, and proxy switches
Processors should be able to focus on critical operations and not have to worry about auxiliary equipment. That’s what Mepaco’s CD1000 Column Dumper delivers; a Column Dumper that is heavily built, engineered for easy maintenance, built to strict sanitary design standards, and like our processing equipment solutions, modifiable to meet specific production requirements.
