Bin Tipper

GP Graders’ 360˚ electric bin tipper is the best available method for tipping full bins of cherries into a grading line. The 360˚ “paddle wheel” style tipper causes no damage to cherries, is the most productive, and safest delivery method of any alternative tipping method in the market today.

The 360˚ electric bin tipper has a de-stacking, tipping and re-stacking cycle time of less than 60 seconds, equating to more than 10 tonne per hour.

Full bins of cherries are loaded in 4 bin high stacks onto the automatic in-feed shuttle. Electric forks de-stack full bins and convey them into the tipping cage. Once locked within the tipping cage bins are rotated 180° into the water receival tank. Submersion of the bin begins at a 20˚ rotation. Porous plastic bins lift cherries with water from below, whereas wooden bins are flooded then lift cherries out of the bin. The bin rotates 180˚ underwater then emerges upside down and fully empty.

After bins are unloaded they are automatically conveyed out of the tipping cage and re-stacked to a 4 bin height.

GP Graders’ 360˚ electric bin tipper is a heavy duty unit which is smooth and quiet in its operation, totally reliable and is simple and safe to use.
