Key product features

ATEX electric control system

ATEX 200-litre drum mixer control system.

ATEX electric control system

We have worked with ATEX electrical experts to design and manufacture the latest generation of drum tumblers. This model makes use of an 'Ex d' control box enclosure which houses all the necessary components to power the mixer. The box is ATEX certified for zones 1, 2, 21 and 22 (gas and dust).


The control box includes the following features: isolator switch, start/stop buttons, docking button (returns drum to vertical), rotation speed control, power light, disabled light, rotation light, emergency stop button.

Easy drum loading

ATEX barrel mixer suitable for mixing 200 litre drums.

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 330mm 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- to 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 860-1010mm 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.

Drum suitability

Drum suitability

The drum securing arrangement is suitable for steel, plastic and cardboard drums with heights from 860-1010mm. If your company handles drums not shown in our photos or videos get in touch and we can advise further on the compatibility with different drum types. Additionally, if you have any short/smaller drums we can offer a small drum adapter as mentioned below.

We can provide a fully-adjustable insert to fit drums from 100-860mm 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.
