Morse 201 Series 55-Gallon (210 liter) Portable Drum Rollers agitate your drum's contents without even opening the drum! Incorporate important stratified or settled ingredients and eliminate sediment in the bottom of your drum.

Mixing in a closed drum eliminates the hazards of worker exposure, and the messy cleanup associated with insertion mixers.



Morse 201 Series Portable Drum Rollers

This compact, portable mixer rolls a closed drum to blend the contents.

You may also dispense directly from a drum through a faucet.

Morse Portable Drum Rollers are available with Fixed or Variable Speed.
  • Fixed Speed Portable Drum Rollers turn a 22.5" (57 cm) diameter drum at 20 RPM (50Hz models roll the same drum at 16 RPM). The RPM of these models cannot be changed.
  • Variable Speed Portable Drum Rollers allow you to vary drum rotation speed from 15 to 24 RPM (13 to 20 RPM on 50Hz models). RPM is based on a 22.5" (57 cm) diameter drum. This allows fast initial drum rolling, then reduce speed for continued, gentle agitation. Variable Speed is ideal for experimental use.



Model 201VS-1 Portable Drum Roller

Place your drum onto the base plate of the 55-gallon drum mixer with a drum truck or a below-hook drum lifter.



Model 201VS-1 Portable Drum Roller

Tipping lever hook engages drum top rim to load. The built-in tipping bar provides leverage to assist in loading a drum upright onto the drum roller, and setting the drum back to upright when drum mixing is finished. The sides and back are enclosed to protect the drive.



GEK-201-1 Guard Enclosure Kit

Combine two components to meet safety requirements:
  1. Drum Rotator
  2. Guard Enclosure Kit (sold separately)

OSHA requires guard enclosure with safety interlock, so drum rotator automatically stops if enclosure is opened.



OPTIONS and ACCESSORIES



POLY-201 Option to roll a plastic drum

Roll a plastic drum on a wheeled Portable Drum Roller. Roll a plastic OR a steel drum with this kit installed.
  • Extra wheels to support flexible plastic drum
  • End stop to prevent drum traveling
  • Chain to assist in tipping upright drum over to rolling position
IMPORTANT: NOT a drum roller by itself.

Option POLY-201
Factory installed OPTION on a new Portable Drum Roller
Kit POLY-201FI
Kit for customer to install on Portable Drum Roller



Option 1-5P Idler Attachment to roll a 5-gallon pail

Idler Attachment 1-5P
Install 1-5P Idler Attachment on a Portable Drum Roller to roll 1 to 5 gallon (4 to 20 liter) can or pail. Collars adjust for up to 18" (45.7 cm) tall cylinder. Install on Portable Drum Roller with 4 bolts.



Portable Drum Rotators with standard 1/2 HP, 60Hz, 1 phase TEFC motor include switch, cord and plug. All other electric 55-gallon (210 liter) drum mixers (i.e. Explosion proof, 3 phase, etc.) are shipped without switch, cord and plug. These must be installed by electrician according to local codes and customer's preference.

Explosion Proof motors are rated for Class I Group D, and Class II Groups F and G. Expect a 20% reduction in drum RPM for models with 50 Hz motors. Air motors are vane-type and require correctly sized filter, regulator, lubricator, valve (FRL) and piping supplied by customer. (Filter, regulator and lubricator (FRL) may be ordered from Morse as Part # 90020-P. Description: KIT, 3/8" FRL & BALL VALVE)

201B Series Belted Portable Drum Rollers have a pair of belts between rollers (instead of wheels) to turn drum. Belts allow it to roll a fiber drum from 16" to 23" (41 to 59 cm) diameter, up to 35" (89 cm) tall, and weighing up to 300 Lb. (136 kg) at 10 to 20 RPM, without damaging the fiber sidewall. Belted portable drum rollers are available with the same drum speeds and motor types.

Customers use Morse Drum Mixers to:
  • Blend batches of powder
  • Ensure uniform batches
  • Mix paint, oils, urethane resin, glue, dyes, flavors, etc.
  • Use as a chemical drum mixer
  • Blend drum contents into homogenous product prior to use
  • Keep epoxy from separating
  • Grind and smooth parts in media
  • Homogenize tailings and sediment samples
  • Plasma spray powder mixing
  • Roll propellant casting tubes for chemical prep prior to cast

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."
