Industries Served by Self Dumping Hoppers

Posted by rauramh on November 28th, 2014

When you think of how many industries self dumping hoppers serve, you realize just how crucial they are to the efficient daily operation of anything from manufacturing to agricultural processes. Offered in several different sizes and load capacities, self dumping hoppers made of heavy-duty steel can address just about any need within any space to boost time savings, production and efficiency.


Thanks to a variety of uses and applications, self dumping hoppers have been used since the early to mid-20th century as a way to boost production on the floors of manufacturing companies, warehouses and factories that were all bustling with the work that World War II brought to the country. From defense manufacturing to clothing and uniform manufacturing, factories had to keep up with the demand in production somehow, and that's where the use of automated machines and accessories came into play. When coupled with a forklift, self dumping hoppers doubled their efficiency and ease of use. Those same efficiencies that made life easier for workers then continues to do so today, even though the industry as a whole looks a lot different.


The self dumping hopper is a major component of many industries today. This piece of equipment is designed to handle just about any material handling problem, saving not only time but manpower efforts as well. When you get more labor done within a work day, using fewer resources and time, you save your company in production costs. Self dumping hoppers present a benefit to several industries, including mining, glass, building, milling, scrap metal processing, woodworking and food processing. You'll also find this crucial component within the solid waste management, agricultural and manufacturing industries. When you invest in quality self dumping hoppers that are manufactured with the highest hand-welded steel strength and durability, you can handle virtually any material, no matter if it's hot or cold. You can even get custom-made hoppers that are designed according to your industry's specifications. Some can be fitted with special attachments or feeders, while others are meant for use with a forklift. Some are for recycling, and still others are for organic waste featuring seal tight lids for decreased spillage. Particularly useful for the manufacturing space, self dumping hoppers are perfect for catching scrap metal, or for the collection of parts to be transferred from one process to another stage of an assembly line.

Serving a variety of industries with their time saving and efficiency measures, self dumping hoppers achieve what manual processes never could: ease of operation and increased production value.
