The ultimate solution for elevating hygiene-critical bulk materials.
The MegaDumper SS is Simpro’s largest bin lifter for hygiene-critical applications. With polished 304-grade stainless steel construction, electro-hydraulic operation and a unique tipping geometry, it is the ultimate solution for elevating bulk materials in a food production environment.
Able to convey more than 20 tonnes of material an hour to heights beyond ten metres, the MegaDumper SS requires less than two square metres of floor space – and unlike competing solutions such as belt conveyors and bucket elevators, it has a simple design with no inaccessible spaces or enclosed mechanisms.
This means it can be completely cleaned and sterilised in less than ten minutes.
The MegaDumper SS was originally designed for emptying Nally® MegaBins® (a bulk bin widely used in the food processing industry), but a range of cradles are now available to suit almost any large bin, box, drum or mixing bowl. Floor space requirements do not change regardless of tipping height – even when lifting bins weighing up to 600kg – since the weight of the bin remains within the footprint at all times.
Like all Simpro products, the MegaDumper SS was designed from the ground up for safety. The standard model has full-height guarding and a safety interlock system to comply with ISO12100 (AS/NZS4024) to Cat1/PLc, but the specifications can be upgraded to Cat3/PLd or Cat4/PLe if required. A compressed-air power system is available for use in volatile or explosive environments.
Since its introduction in 2002 the MegaDumper SS has proven to be remarkably reliable in even the most demanding of applications, and has been chosen by dozens of leading food-processing companies including Nestle, General Mills, Fonterra, Goodman Fielder, Cadbury, Tasti Products and Bundaberg Brewed Drinks.
