Enclosure with Safety Interlock with Portable Drum Roller (sold separately)


Place your drum roller into the cage and close it to begin rolling. When the cage is opened, the drum roller is automatically shut off.


Install all Morse Rotators in accordance with local requirements for enclosure and safety interlock, etc. One way to accomplish this is with a Morse enclosure with safety interlock, so the rotator automatically turns off when enclosure door is opened. Power connections and motor controls must also comply with applicable local codes.


For OSHA compliance in the USA, see OSHA subpart O.1910.212(a)(4) "Barrels, containers, and drums. Revolving drums, barrels, and containers shall be guarded by an enclosure which is interlocked with the drive mechanism, so that the barrel, drum, or container cannot revolve unless the guard enclosure is in place."


Option # POLY-201 to roll a plastic drum on the same drum mixer


Plastic drums are soft-sided and lack the ridged ribs and rims of a steel drum. They require special features to position them on the drum roller, and to prevent them from traveling lengthways during rotation.





This option includes:

  • Three extra wheels on each side support your plastic drum. The weight is then distributed over a total of 14 wheels.
  • End stop to prevent a plastic drum from traveling lengthways while being rolled.
  • Chain to latch around the top of the drum while tipping from upright to horizontal rolling position on the drum mixer. The chain should then be released during drum rolling.
  • Units with this option installed ship on a skid and add 62 Lb. to the ship weight.

Option # POLY-201FI
