Morse 309 Series Drum Tumblers rotate "corner-over-corner" to thoroughly mix drum contents without ever opening drum. This prevents messy cleanup from insertion mixers; reduces hazards and worker exposure; incorporates settled or stratified valuable ingredients; homogenizes liquid, granulated, or powdered products; and eliminates sediment at the bottom of a drum.

Guard Enclosure for Model 309-3 Drum Tumbler
Combine three components to meet safety requirements:
  1. Drum Tumbler
  2. Control Package (sold separately)
  3. Guard Enclosure Kit (sold separately)
OSHA, CSA and EU REQUIRE guard enclosure with safety interlock, so the rotator automatically stops if enclosure gate is opened.
IMPORTANT: OSHA holds the employer responsible for the suitability of design and application of tools and machinery.
Install all Morse Rotators in accordance with 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."

NEMA 4/12 Control Box includes Timer, Start and Stop Buttons, Red Emergency Stop Button, Lockable Main Disconnect, and Wire terminals for safety interlock switch. NEMA 7/9 Explosion-Proof Control Box includes Start and Stop Buttons, Run / Jog Selector Switch, and wire terminals for external connection of safety interlock switch.

Only NON-Explosion Proof AC Control Packages include a pre-wired control box. Explosion-Proof Control Packages have no wiring from the NEMA 7/9 control box to the motor. Please consult an electrician to complete the wiring in accordance to your local code.

Explosion-Proof motors on models 309-E1 and 309-E1-50 are rated for Class I Group D, and other Explosion-Proof motors are rated for Class I Group D and Class II Groups F & G.

Air powered model 309-A requires plant air at 40 to 60 PSI and flowing at a rate of 40 SCFM. 309-A rotates a drum at 14 RPM and allows you to vary RPM with air flow and pressure. Sound level during operation is about 75 dB. Air Controls included with 309-A, including On / Off Air Valve, and Filter, Regulator, Lubricator (FRL).
