The ATEX-Rated Drum Clamping Attachment with Forward Tipping was designed in response to a customer requirement in the pharmaceutical industry to lift and forward rotate steel open top drums.

The lifting solution is designed to transport the steel drums from the pallet to a containment booth. The contents of the drum can be emptied via the manual forward tipping mechanism.

The clamping attachment features a hinged, stainless band, which encloses the drum. The clamp door is fastened to ensure a firm grip on the drum. The band clamp can be adjusted to cater for drum diameters from 500mm to 600mm.

The lifting attachment is mounted onto a heavy-duty stainless steel 316 stacker truck, suitable for the pharmaceutical industry and high care clean room environments.

The ATEX-Rated attachment and lifting machine feature manual lift and lower mechanisms with a hydraulic manual pump device. Forward manual rotation of the drums is achieved by means of a geared handwheel. The gear box is enclosed in a stainless-steel safety cover, suitable for pharmaceutical environments.

These features ensure a quick, easy and simple transfer with minimal operator effort which means that the stainless drums can be handled surely and safely with minimum effort and complete confidence.

The attachment has been designed to provide a high load capacity with great strength and durability as well as enhanced wear resistance. It is very easy to use which provides a simple and safe action.

This handling equipment has a lifting capacity of 350kg.
