Gaylord Tilter Features
Floor level tilters
Floor level tilters are either hand or foot operated and can hold containers up to 2500 lb. They can be set for either manual or automatic operation and include a safety ratchet that keeps operators safe. It can be easily loaded by a hand truck or pallet mover because the box platform is flat on the floor. A heavy-duty air bag device slowly fills with compressed air to automatically tilt the platform and container as it is emptied. An adjustable conveyor feed tube support is included.
Raised platform tilters
Raised platform tilters are operated by heavy-duty air cylinders. This type of tilter is adjusted so that it will start lifting the container when less than 500 lbs remain in the box. Then it slowly tips the box to a 45° angle to assure smooth continuous feeding to the vacuum feed tube.
Automatic or manual operation
Tilters can be set for either manual or automatic operation. The tilters will automatically swing up as material is emptied to assure a constant flow of material.
