Drum emptying – remove bulk goods and powder from drums

Volkmann GmbH, August 3, 2020
In some situations the pick-up of bulk product is from drums or barrels and depending on the product this can be easy or more difficult to do. Products flow easily or be strongly adhesive. We have developed various solutions to empty drums almost completely and without a lot of operator intervention.

The barrel is mounted in a holding station and is tipped by hand. To suck the product out of the barrel a suction lance is inserted from above. The drum emptying device is adapted to the product and the task situation. Drum emptying where a liner is present is then also possible.

As the product is sucked out of the drum by vacuum conveying, the suction lance sinks down into the drum under gravity and thus gradually empties the contents. The process is supported with a vibrator, which is attached to the station below the platform, in order to help extract difficult-to-flow products.

For products that tend to be very dusty or should be contained as much as possible, it is possible to mount a corresponding lid on the barrel. This is equipped with a ventilation filter and a sealing sleeve and thus prevents dust from escaping.
