Protect your investment and avoid costly downtime with Ensign’s Dumper Over-Travel Stop.
Discharging and conveying heavy or sluggish materials can be a pain. Materials such as paper, clothing, extruder purgings, and recycled metal can often surge or even discharge all at once due to their tendency to bridge, nest, or cling together, and this can cause the bucket of a container dumper to rotate beyond the maximum unload angle and beyond the full stroke of the hydraulic cylinders. Rotating too far results in cylinder rods contacting the frame which causes side-load pressure and seal failure. As seals fail they allow fluid to travel past and escape out of the top breather vent and can be quite a time-consuming housekeeping mess.
The Dumper Over-Travel Stop is constructed using a heavy-duty c-channel frame with rubber bumpers and is designed to prevent the dumper from over-rotating past the full unload point. This prolongs the life of the dumper’s hydraulic cylinders, avoiding costly downtime and repairs. The Over-Travel Stop is a simple, smart, and cost-effective solution to assist in discharging heavy or sluggish materials.
