Morse Drum Rotators - Stationary Drum Rollers
to mix the contents of a sealed drum

Rotating drums to mix or blend material inside a closed drum saves time, labor and money. Drum rotating mixes drum contents to ensure homogeneity with less hazards.

Morse Stationary Drum Rollers



Double Drum Rollers
roll 1 or 2 drums at a time

Double Drum Roller
Model 2-5154/20-1 Double Drum Roller (shown)
rolls your 55-gallon steel drums at 20 RPM.

Single Drum Rollers
for rolling one drum

Morse 55-Gallon Drum Roller
Model 1-5154/20-1 Single Drum Roller (shown)
rolls your 55-gallon steel drum at 20 RPM.

Features of Morse Stationary Drum Rollers
Each drum rolls on 4 drive and 4 idler wheels. Models are available with various drum rotating speeds.
  • Variable Speed End-Over-End Drum Rollers utilize a variable frequency drive (VFD shown left) to rotate your drum at any speed from 1 to 38 RPM. Select the best speed for each material. Enables you to use high speed for initial mixing, then low speed for prolonged agitation. Variable speed drum rollers are ideal for experimental use or where you need to blend a variety of materials. The VFD includes motor starter and disconnect. Mount the VFD on a wall or on the outside of Safety Enclosure required by OSHA.

  • Models with fixed drum rotating speed of 10, 20 or 30 RPM. The 20 RPM speed is effective for mixing most liquids. Customer supplies motor controls.

Mixing contents inside your sealed drum eliminates the risks of spills and splashing of dangerous contents on workers during transfer, and greatly reduces clean-up, and the risk of contamination. It also eliminates use of special mixing vessels.

Variable Frequency Drive to control drum rotation speed
Variable Speed Drum Rollers
are equipped with a Variable
Frequency Drive (VFD) with
motor starter and disconnect.
Mount VFD on a wall and
control drum rolling speed
from 1 to 38 RPM.
Options for your Stationary Drum Roller
Option to roll a 55-gallon plastic drum
Option for rolling 55-gallon plastic drum

Roll your 55-gallon plastic drum on stationary drum rollers. These options provide extra wheels to support a flexible soft sided 55-gallon plastic drum which lacks ribs or roll rings, and an end stop to prevent your plastic drum from traveling lengthways while being rolled.

Note: OSHA Requirement for enclosure with safety interlockInstall all Morse Rotators in accordance with local requirements for enclosure and safety interlock, etc. One way to accomplish this is with a Morse enclosure with safety interlock, so the rotator automatically turns off when enclosure door is opened. Power connections and motor controls must also comply with applicable local codes.

For OSHA compliance in the USA, see OSHA subpart O.1910.212(a)(4) "Barrels, containers, and drums. Revolving drums, barrels, and containers shall be guarded by an enclosure which is interlocked with the drive mechanism, so that the barrel, drum, or container cannot revolve unless the guard enclosure is in place."

Option to roll a 1 to 5 gallon can
Option 1-5-1 Idler Attachment to roll 1 to 5 gallon can
