Posted by rauramh on October 31st, 2014
Self dumping hoppers are a solution for bulk handling, to endure heavy handling of materials in various solid forms such as metal parts, scrap metal, hot & cold castings, glass, sludge, waste, and increase productivity.
Each material handling application requires different forms of self dumping hoppers in which are determined by the purpose of its use. Self dumping hoppers require heavy welds for applications handling materials at high temperatures for holding at a cooling stage of a process as well as post production scrap.
The gauge of self dumping hoppers varies and tends to be determined by use. The range spreads between custom heavy duty self dumping hoppers comprised of 1/4” & 7gauge steel to be able to endure rugged and heavy use to light duty self dumping hoppers comprised of 12 gauge steel.
Be sure to look for custom features that can make a tremendous difference saving time and effort such as:
• Forklift handling
• Trip lever
• Balanced release for ease of use
• Extruded trunnion tracking hole for superior wear
• Self latching system for security
• Casters for mobility
• Boxed steel design for added strength
• Lid covers to help the effort in contamination & theft.
Selecting the right material handling hopper can save time, space and resources can save you money and quicken turnaround time, having the proper tools can increase profitability.
These benefits and more should be factored in your decision making process when selecting a self dumping hopper.
