Key product features

Fully compliant electrical circuits

Fully compliant electrical circuits

Our electrical engineers install safe and compliant circuits in every machine we manufacture. Each circuit includes mandatory features such as emergency stop buttons and key switch power isolators. Each and every power clamp model includes a hydraulic clamp pressure gauge. This gauge is used to monitor the clamp pressure during lifting operations ensuring drums remains secure at all times.

Powered drum clamp and forward rotation

Powered drum clamp and forward rotation

Unlike a banded drum tipping model, this unit has a greater level of powered functionality. Operators wheel the unit towards a drum (located on the floor or the corner of a pallet), clamp the pads around the drum and then lift and tip the contents into a process vessel or secondary container. Powered functions reduce the need for manual interaction with the drum, this is beneficial in saving time and thus improves overall manufacturing cycle times.

​Clamping pad designs

This model can be tailored to suit your process and how you need to handle your drums. Our unique flexible rubber clamping pads are designed to be used with a variety of drum types and sizes (280mm to 610mm in diameter). The clamping pads can also be configured to allow 205 litre drums to be removed from the corner of a pallet if this is a requirement.

Controllable rear-wheel steering

Controllable rear-wheel steering

Maximum control and low rolling resistance is achieved using a rear-wheel steering design. The wheels we specify each contain two rubber-sealed (RS) precision bearings and are 160mm in diameter. Both rear wheels feature foot-operated park brakes which keep the unit stationary when near a process vessel or not in use. Bespoke leg dimensions can be offered should you need to straddle a certain pallet size or fit the legs beneath a machine or vessel.

Power clamp drum suitability

A range of drums suitable for being handled by an STS drum tipper.

Power clamp drum suitability

Designed to be as versatile as possible, this power-clamp model can handle a wide range of drum types and sizes. The clamping pads can be provided for handling drums and barrels with a diameter range of between 280mm and 610mm. The system has been designed to handle drums of up to 1000mm in height; this covers the majority of drum types used in the market.

Optional features

Stainless-steel model

This model can be supplied in 304-grade stainless steel, suitable for good manufacturing practice (GMP) areas as well as clean rooms.

Telescopic/variable lift height

Up to 1500mm of lift height is provided as standard with this model. A telescopic model can also be supplied for tall-lift applications of up to 2700mm.

Wireless load-cell weighing system

With our wireless load-cell system you can weigh drums while you lift and tip them. A wireless handheld display shows the drum weight in real time.

Variable leg dimensions

We can offer custom leg configurations to suit a variety of applications and usage requirements.

Power-drive system

When handling many drums per day and travelling over long distances you may require power drive. Our power-drive variant is easy to use and will speed up operations.

Sale or return

In the UK we can supply certain equipment on a sale-or-return basis, meaning you can use a unit on-site for seven days with no obligation to buy it once the trial period is up. Find out more here.
