Drum Dumper - Morse 185AM Kontrol-Karrier - Spark Resistant Parts - Morse Drum Handling System
Morse Model 185AM below-hook drum carrier allows you to lift, move and pour a drum weighing up to 800 Lb., or a half-full* drum up to 500 Lb. Model 185A below-hook drum carrier is equipped with the MORcinch Drum Holder to handle a 55-gallon steel drum with 22" to 23.5" outside diameter between the ribs.
To load the drum lifter, simply move the drum holder against the drum and cinch the chain. Lift the drum and rotate drum 360 degrees in either direction. Drum can be held at any tilt angle. The standard drum tilt control is a chain wheel with 12' chain loop.
The slots in the bottom of the frame can be used as a chain lock to prevent the drum from tilting. To do so, crisscross the chain and insert one side into each slot. If the drum handler is equipped with the MORStop Tilt-Brake Option, braking is immediate and automatic. To have MORStop Tilt-Brake Option installed on your new Kontrol-Karrier, order Option # 3900i-P.
The Primary Advantage of this model is the spark resistant parts intended to reduce the possibility of mechanical sparks as a source of ignition. Spark resistant parts are not a substitute for gounding and bonding to prevent static electricity discharges. Metal such as Monel are used in the drum holder bands and at the lifting eye. Stainless steel chain is used instead of carbon alloy steel chain across the front of the drum. Pull chain for the tilt control drive has brass chain substituted for the steel chain.
Morse drum lifters comply with ANSI/ASME B30.20 standard for mechanical, below-the-hook lifting devices as it applies to the following:
• Rated load markings and unit identification
• Minimum design safety factor of 3, based on yield strength, for load bearing structural components
• Welding is performed by certified welders who have passed the ANSI/AWS D14.1 welding qualification test
• All welding is in accordance with ANSI/AWS D14.1 and ASME BTH-1
Morse 185AM Drum Carrier w/Spark Resistant Parts Specifications:
Capacity: 800 lbs.
Weight: 98 lbs.
Fits Drum Size: 55 Gallon Steel Drum 22" to 23.5" Outside Diameter
*Half-Full Drum Rating
Half-full drum rating for below-hook drum carrier is an indication of capacity for tilting unbalanced, bottom heavy drum. Partially full drum with unbalanced and shifting load is harder to tilt than full drum.
