Key product features

Control system

End-over-end 200-litre drum mixer control system.

Control system

The system allows for a maximum mixing speed of 11 RPM and a minimum speed of 2 RPM. The control system includes start/stop buttons as well as a mains isolator. The mixer is started at the slowest speed of 2 RPM. The operator increases the speed up to 11 RPM by twisting the variator gearbox control. When finished, the operator reduces the speed back to 2 RPM; this slow speed allows the user to stop the drum in the vertical orientation ready for unloading. This model doesn't include a mix timer or docking function like the non-ATEX version (image shows non-ATEX controls).

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 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 200-220 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

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.
