The Tipper System is a good alternative with a much higher capacity. Its advantages will especially bc snore pronounced in the new mills having larger capacities. There is a limit to the size of cage when used with the overhead crane/hoist. The Tipper System, however, can handle cages with mo,-e than 3.5 ton nes FF8 capacity. The key features of the Tipper System is that it is easy to use and main lain and has a high FFB throughput. This paper highlights the principles of its operation and its advantages. It provides potential users with an option to choose front in the handling of sterilized bunches.
