Drum Tumblers


Morse Industrial Drum Tumblers rotate a drum end-over-end for a vigorous mix inside the drum. They turn a drum continuously in one direction.

Tumbling sealed drums allows you to blend sediment and valuable ingredients back into suspension, eliminate contamination, while reducing clean-up and hazards of worker exposure associated with insertion mixers. Electric powered and air powered models are available.

To meet OSHA safety requirements, Control Package and Guard Enclosure with Interlock are required, and are sold separately.

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."
