Drum Cones

Drum Cones to control dispensing
of dry material from your drum

Replace your drum lid with a properly sized
Drum Cone to control your dispensing
operation by turning your drum into a
precise pouring instrument. Morse
Drum Cones and Clamp Collars
are available in 16 gauge
carbon steel or type 304
stainless steel.

Drum Cone (model # 5-VF-45-23) for 55-gallon drum
shown with Iris Valve (kit # IV) and Clamp Collar
 (model #7-23) to secure cone to drum

Replace your drum lid with a drum cone
 to control dumping dry material
from a 55 gallon drum.

  • Control pouring from a drum and greatly reduce dust when discharging dry material
  • Quickly start and stop dispensing with slide gate or iris valve at 6" discharge opening
  • Extend the reach of pour
  • 45 or 60 degree angle drum cone, or asymmetric drum cone with off center discharge
  • Drum cones for steel drum or fiber drum
  • Drum cones for various drum diameters from 15-7/8" to 23-3/8" (40.3 to 59.4 cm)

   Attach a Morse drum cone with a valve to your drum to start and stop product flow,
  and extend the reach of the pour by up to 15.5" (39.4 cm). This can be critical when
  you need to reach beyond obstructions at the receiving container.

Note: Morse drum cones can be used with many Mobile Drum Handlers and Forklift Drum Handlers. But only an Asymmetric drum cone will work with standard Below-Hook Kontrol-Karriers. The only below-hook drum carrier that can rotate a drum with a centered drum cone attached is custom model # 185S-LA with longer arms for sufficient clearance within the frame.

Drum Cones
 for use with

Vertical-Lift Drum Pourers
Hydra-Lift Karriers
Fork-Lift Karriers

Morse Drum Cones are designed for controlled dispensing of dry powdered or granulated material and to reduce dust while discharging. Dispensing can be stopped almost instantly with a slide gate or iris valve.

Applications for
Drum Cones

Drum Cones and Clamp Collars are ideal for use with several different Morse drum handlers. Stainless steel drum cone with an iris valve (Model 5SS-IV-45-23) is shown above on a fiber drum being lifted with Model 520-114 Vertical-Lift Drum Pourer. Drum Cones can be used with all Morse Vertical-Lift Drum Pourers, Fork-Lift Karriers, and also with Hydra-Lift Karriers.

Special Below-Hook Kontrol-Karriers are available with longer arms to provide the increased clearance required for rotating a drum with cone attached.

Asymmetric Drum Cones
Use Asymmetric Drum Cones with many Morse models, including standard below-hook drum carriers.

Valve Types
Choose the type of valve best for your application depending on the type of product you dispense.

Add a Slide Gate to your Drum Cone. A Slide Gate is recommended for powdered material, but NOT for coarse granulated products.

Iris Valve with aluminum body and 4 oz (.11 kg) nylon sleeve for controlling the flow of fine and coarse materials. The operator revolves the handle around the valve to open and close the flexible sleeve up to a 6" (15.24 cm) diameter opening. A wide range of fine to coarse materials can be handled without clogging the iris valve.

Iris Valves are for use with products having a maximum density of 60 Lb./ft3.

Valve Flange to mount Iris Valve (kit # IV) or Slide Gate (Kit # SG or SG-SS)
Morse Drum Cones are available with a Valve Flange to attach a Morse Slide Gate, Iris Valve, or the valve of your choice.

Refer to the Flange Dimension Drawing and Bolt Hole Pattern to ensure your valve will fit a Morse Drum Cone.
