  • Proper Operational Procedures Improves Dumper Performance Posted 2 months ago
    Depending on the complexity of the equipment and controls, there are a few options for production personnel to learn how to operate the equipment. The manual explains the operation of the equipment and its components. The customer can visit Apache for training and testing or contract with Mepaco Field Services for on-site training. In one example, the production staff did not understand how to operate the DP3000 Dumper, causing the carriage to bind-up where cylinders weren't lifting in tandem. The issue was caused by incorrect operation. The DP3000 must be cycled fully up and down. It is timed and needs to be bottomed out each time. Incorrect operation may cause damage to the cylinders. The correction is to pull the hydraulic line off and remove the oil. Then operate the Dumper to the full up and down position at all times. Please call Joe Hertel, Field Services Manager, at 920-219-2286 if you have any questions about the operation of Mepaco equipment or if a training visit is necessary for new personnel.

  • Dumping Equipment Options Help Meet Food Safety Goals Posted 2 years ago
    In the video are two options that can be added to a dumper system to eliminate debris from finding its way into the product. The first is a pallet retention system (PRS) which is integrated into the loading base. It is engineered to securely remove the pallet away from the product “dump zone” so that wood and other impurities are prevented from entering the product stream. The next option is the liner hold-down mechanism which is also engineered to hold back the liner during the dumping process. These options meet food safety goals and the liner hold-down prevents operators from having to reach and try to control the liner by hand.
