Key product features

Pneumatic control system

End-over-End 200-Litre Drum Mixer pneumatic control system

Pneumatic control system

Our pneumatic-powered drum tumbler uses an airline connection to power the rotation functions. The air source powers a pneumatic-hydraulic pump. The hydraulic pump powers a motor which in turn rotates a heavy-duty gearbox. The control system features start/stop buttons, an emergency stop and speed controls. If the airline is switched off or disconnected the tumbler will come to a stop.

Easy drum loading

Easy drum loading

All of our STS drum lifters have been designed to easily load and unload the end-over-end drum tumbler. If you have a forklift drum attachment this can also be used providing it fits within the mixer cage. The base plate of the mixer head is 300mm from the ground and therefore it is important to ensure that any lifting equipment has sufficient lift height and is both safe and ergonomic to use.

Robust drum-securing method

Robust drum-securing method

Drums of 200-220 litres in capacity can be secured into the drum tumbler head using the robust screw-top clamping bar arrangement. The clamping bar, which is adjustable, allows you to clamp drums of between 840-1010mm in height. Once a drum is secured, remove the t-bar (used to tighten the clamp), close the gates and begin mixing.

Fully compliant safety guarding

Fully compliant safety guarding

To comply with the EU Machinery Directive our drum tumblers are manufactured with a complete guarding arrangement as standard. The guarding fully-surrounds the unit and prevents operators from accessing the machinery during mixing. Guarding is a mandatory requirement and is an important consideration when purchasing a new piece of machinery.

Safety gate interlocks

Safety gate interlocks

Both the ATEX and non-ATEX end-over-end mixers feature safety gate interlocks: only once the gates have been closed can you activate the mixing function. To protect you and your operators, we've engineered an additional safety feature: should the gates be opened during a mix cycle, the unit will stop mixing immediately.

We can provide a fully-adjustable insert to fit drums from 100-850mm in height. Operators set the adapter to different drum heights by moving the placement of two quick-release pins up and down. If you require a custom mixer for particular or unusual drums, we can explore the viability of making a bespoke model.
