then returns it to upright at floor-level

Tilt-To-Load Drum Tumblers with the advanced factory-installed Automated Control Package to automatically lift your drum, rotate for the time you set, and then return it to upright position at floor-level for easy handling. The built-in safety interlock on the enclosure automatically shuts off the drum rotator when the gate is opened. Watch the video to see how it works.

Set the desired time of drum rotation anywhere from a few seconds to 16 hours, push the start button, and walk away. You preset the tumbling speed from 5 to 20 RPM. 

The enclosure has an integrated safety interlock, in accordance with OSHA requirements, so the machine automatically shuts off when the enclosure is opened.

  • Variable speed: 5 to 20 RPM
  • Capacity:
    • 800 Lb. (363 kg) full drum
    • 400 Lb. (181 kg) half-full drum. Half-Full Drum Rating is an indication of the capacity for tilting an unbalanced, bottom-heavy drum. A partially full drum with an unbalanced and shifting load is harder to tilt than a full drum.

 

Note: OSHA Requirement for enclosure with safety interlock 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."
