Drum Inverter

The EHS Drum Inverter features a very robust and portable design that allows operators to lift and position drums above tall applications. Custom options on the Drum Inverter allow it to accommodate a wide variety of applications.

The use of a pneumatic compression funnel allows for various sized drums to be secured while the Drum Inverter is in operation. A drum liner retention ring can be used to prevent the drum liner from falling into the funnel valve. The compression pressure can easily be adjusted on the control panel to allow for various drum weights and structures.The Drum Inverter utilizes an actuation system that allows the drum to invert a full 180 degrees. Smooth rotation and simple operator controls allow the rotation to be stopped and started in any given position.

Drum Tipper

EHS has developed a patented Drum Tipper to address the ergonomic risk factors associated with manually dumping drums. Each system is tailored from a core production design to meet the specific requirements of the application.

The exoskeletal frame of the EHS Drum Tipper provides a design that allows full wash-down and access to all surfaces and components. With no sealed panels that could leak or collect water, the open frame design of the Drum Tipper ensures that all the cleaning solution will fully rinse from the frame. In compliance with GMP practices, all product contact surfaces are polished to a unidirectional mechanical finish with a surface roughness of less than 25 μin Ra. The EHS Drum Tipper is constructed from 304 stainless steel and uses a completely pneumatic control system.

Drum Mover

EHS Drum Movers are operated by two toggle switches allowing an operator to ergonomically lift and move drums anywhere within a manufacturing facility. Ergonomically positioned handles and thumb controls make the Drum Mover easy and intuitive to operate. Larger front wheels enable the Drum Mover to be moved with less force while small rear wheels allow for better maneuverability. Drums can be lifted directly off a pallet (when drums are in a four drum per pallet configuration) without the operator having to move or reposition the drums.

Drum Carts

EHS Drum Carts allow drums to easily be moved from one location to another. The drum cart is constructed of 304 stainless steel and has an orbital surface finish. Higher-grade stainless and surface finish options are available upon request. Ergonomically position handles allow the operator to easily move a drum from one location to another. Four swivel casters allow the drum cart to be moved in any direction.

Power Tugs

The GMP Power Tug is designed to dock with various heavy mobile equipment ensuring safe and easy transportation throughout the process areas. The max weight Capacity is 6000 lbs. Battery powered with a 24V 65AH maintenance free battery, the Power Tug comes with a magnetic disc brake and a 24V permanent magnet DC drive motor.

The material of construction comes in options of 304 or 316 option. GMP standard Orbital Polish and can be fully customized as per Application.
