Install all Morse Drum Rotators with Enclosure and Interlock

The ergonomic power tilt control raises the drum to rotating position. Turn the motor on to activate drum tumbler hydraulics. Tilt the drum to top position with the RAISE control valve. Use the second control to start and stop drum tumbling. Begin drum rotation with the ROTATE control valve.

Combine three components to meet safety requirements:
  1. Drum Tumbler
  2. Control Package (sold separately)
  3. Guard Enclosure Kit (sold separately)
OSHA requires a guard enclosure with safety interlock, so that the rotator will automatically stop running if the 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, 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 are rated for Class I Group D, and Class II Groups F & G.

Air powered model 310-A requires plant air at 50 to 60 PSI and flowing at a rate of 60 SCFM. Filter, Regulator, Lubricator and Valve are included with model 310-A.
