BTM/350/4650/B/G Single Pillar High Level Bin Tipper
This High Level Bin Tipper is a Single Pillar 300 Litre Tote Bin Tipper that is designed to lift and tip at a discharge height of 4650mm. The High Level Bin Tipper is manufactured from Grade 304 stainless steel, is a welded construction throughout and is designed to be bolted to the floor.

Safety Guard to BS EN 14120:2015 Safety of Machinery Guards
The safety guard is constructed from 40 x 40 x 3mm stainless steel box section and 3mm wire, 40mm aperture stainless steel weld mesh to meet the guidelines of BS EN 14120:2015 Safety of Machinery Guards. It encloses the high level bin tipper to a height of 5480mm on three sides with a cut-out through which the bin is tipped on the fourth side. At the ground level there is a safety guard door through which the bins are loaded and unloaded. The guard door is electrically and mechanically interlocked preventing the high level bin tipper from operating when the door is open. Additionally, the guard door can only be opened when the lift carriage is at the full down position to prevent access whilst a load is raised.
High Level Bin Tipper Electrical Control
This high level bin tipper is fitted with an IP65 Stainless Steel Control Panel which is mounted on the safety guard at a convenient position to give good maintenance access under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulation 1998 (PUWER). Upper and Lower end of travel limit switches are positioned to prevent inadvertent adjustment or damage but are easily adjustable by trained personnel for fine adjustment on site.
The control panel incorporates the following controls; Up, Down, Guard Release, Emergency Stop and a Reset Facility. The high level bin tipper operation is latched so that pressing the ‘Up’ push button once will raise the lift to the full tip position. Once the product has been discharged the high level bin tipper will return to the full down position. Also included was an intermediate limit switch which paused the high level bin tipper prior to tipping if the infeed hopper was full.
