Load upright drum onto drum roller base plate
Morse developed the basic concept to provide "hands-off" drum mixing. Enjoy the benefits of easy, ergonomic loading and unloading and eliminate many hazards of manual drum handling. Morse Hydra-Lift Drum Rollers accept a drum in upright position at floor level.
Power Tilt drum from upright over to rolling position
You control the hydraulic powered drum tilt to lift the upright drum and place it down on drum rotator wheels. Start and stop drum rotation with a second control. A standard 55-gallon (210 liter) drum can be rolled from 5 to 17 RPM (4 to 14 RPM on 50Hz models), as desired, to thoroughly mix drum contents. Then return the drum to vertical to unload.
OSHA Requires enclosure with interlock
Combine three components (each sold separately) to meet safety requirements:
  1. Drum Roller
  2. Control Package
  3. Guard Enclosure Kit
OSHA REQUIRES a guard enclosure with safety interlock, so that rotator automatically stops running if enclosure gate is opened.
Mixing times vary depending on factors such as…
  • Drum RPM
  • Drum size
  • Fullnes of drum (clearance space within drum)
  • Liquid vs powder or granulated drum contents
  • Degree of uniformity / homogeneity required
  • Ambient temperature
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."

Available with choice of electric or air motor.

Explosion-proof electric motors available. Only NON-Explosion Proof AC Control Packages include a pre-wired control box.

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.

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.

Model 456-A has air motor. Filter, Regulator, Lubricator and Valve are included. Air powered model 456-A requires plant air at 40 to 60 PSI and flowing at a rate of 40 SCFM.
