Tong’s heavy-duty 160° bin dumper is one of the most popular potato and vegetable tote & bin dumpers within Tong’s tote & bin dumping range. It can be specified for complete and efficient emptying of bins, totes and big totes.
Available in a choice of 3 models; bin, tote or bin and tote dumpers, the 160° bin & tote dumper feature the latest heavy-duty dumping mechanism design, with enhanced linkage strength. Its advanced design allows bins to be dumped through a wider arc of up to 160°, which ensures bins are emptied fully, while also requiring less energy to operate.
The advanced bin and tote dumping mechanism design also puts less strain on bearings and linkages, resulting in a reliably strong and robust mechanism, with minimal servicing and maintenance requirements. In addition, the dumper also operates with increased energy efficiency and high outputs too!
SAFE & COMPLEtE tote & bin DUMPING
Like all Tong dumpers, the 160° bin dumper is designed to meet stringent safety standards. Featuring a bin/tote movement siren and empty beacon, as well as light guards, you can be sure that operation is simple and safe at all times.
The fully automated machine can handle bins up to two tons or can be custom-built to effectively dump and empty 1-ton jumbo totes. Tong’s 160° bin dumper can be combined with a second dumping machine with either a forward or cross conveyor to give outputs of over 50 tons of crop per hour.
BUILT-IN POWER EFFICIENCY
All Tong bin dumpers are built with an energy efficient power-saving mode which identifies and shuts-off the dumper when not in use.
ENHANCED DUMPING RANGE
Designed to dump bins and totes through a wider arc of up to up to 160°, Tong’s heavy duty dumper ensures bins and totes are emptied fully, while also requiring less energy to operate.
HEAVY DUTY LINKAGE MECHANISM
Tong’s Heavy Duty 160° degree bin and tote dumper offers the ultimate flexibility in dumping bins and totes up to 2 tons. Built with the latest dumping mechanism and enhanced linkage strength, the 160° degree dumper offers reliable dumping performance.
OPTIMUM SAFETY LIGHT GUARDS
Tong bin and tote dumpers are designed to meet stringent safety standards, featuring a bin/tote movement siren and empty beacon, as well as light guards, which meet the full requirements of EC legislation. The light guards become active when the dumper cradle begins to lift and any breaking of the security beams will stop the machine.
Tong offers an automatic hydraulically operated clamp bin lid as an option on all bin dumpers. The hydraulic lid automatically lowers onto the top of the bin once the bin is placed in the dumping cradle. This ensures a secure hold of the bin within the dumper, and completely removes the chance of any spillage of crop. When a full clamp lid is fitted, it incorporates a hydraulically opening flow door which opens to release crop once the bin is dumped. A half clamp lid can also be fitted meaning half of the lid is open, so as the dumper lifts in increments, controlled by crop sensors, the crop gently flows out of the bin.
The option of an in-line forward conveyor is a popular choice for a continuous and even feed of crop from the dumper, as well as offering holding capacity whilst the bin or tote is changed. The forward conveyor is fitted at the outfeed of the dumper and is available in two standard options – 6ft long x 6½ft wide or 10ft long x 7 ¾ ft wide. The crop conveyors are powered by inverter direct drive variable speed motors, and a crop sensor fitted to the top of the conveyor controls the dumping mechanism and the even flow of crop from the dumper to the conveyor. Should there be no crop or a gap in the flow of crop on any part of the belt, the crop sensor automatically accelerates the belt until crop reaches the end of the belt, then the speed returns to normal.
Similar to the in-line forward conveyor, the option of a cross conveyor is offered at the outfeed of all Tong dumpers. This option helps to ensure a continuous flow of crop, and offers crop-holding capacity whilst the bin is changed. It is particularly popular where crop is required to flow at a 90° angle from the orientation of the dumper, often where space is limited.
160° TOTE DUMPER MODEL
Tong’s Heavy Duty 160° tote dumper offers efficient dumping of totes up to 2 tons. Built with the latest ram dumping mechanism and enhanced linkage strength, the 160° dumper offers reliable dumping performance.
