Industrial Hoppers: Ideal Solution to Increase Warehouse Efficiency & Safety
Industrial strength hoppers are designed for the toughest and most demanding working environments. They are built to last, with a durable 12- and 10-gauge steel body that can handle up to 4,000lbs of material and up to five cubic yards of capacity. Heavy duty hoppers for rugged industries have a 3/16-inch plate steel body that can hold up to 8,000lbs. Ultimate strength grade industrial hoppers have a 1/4-inch plate steel body for handling a larger and heavier volume of materials.
Using these hoppers may improve the efficiency and safety of your warehouse. Many industrial hoppers are self-dumping, which means your workers do not have to tilt them manually to pour or dispose of the contents. This feature can be essential when dealing with dangerous materials such as coal, hot ash, heavy construction materials, glass, forgings, and concrete. Self-dumping industrial hoppers can ensure safer materials handling and provide a more efficient way to keep those materials in one place before disposal.
Workers can work faster when they use self-dumping industrial hoppers. To match your materials handling requirements the hoppers come in different sizes.. The right size will provide efficient handling of different types of materials—from castings to lightweight recyclables, plastics, wood, sand, and metal scraps. Industrial hoppers can minimize manual labor, so your workers can focus on other aspects of their job, increase productivity, and work in safer conditions.
And because your workers can accomplish their jobs safely and more efficiently, they no longer have to call in sick or demand for higher hazard pay. Industrial hoppers may help reduce or prevent accidents in the workplace, too. They can likewise improve the working conditions of your employees when hazardous and dangerous materials can be kept securely in one place.
High-quality industrial hoppers are continuously welded to prevent leakage and holes forming on edges of the interior. They come with support channels for additional reinforcement on their bodies. The formed top construction provides optimum strength and reinforced durability, and a flip secure latch keeps everything in its place. Heavy duty industrial hoppers have the strongest box tube base to be able to handle heavy or hot materials. Extra reinforcements to the stops are possible with the continuous stop bar and base to body chains.
Industrial hoppers can be customized to suit your business. Consider customizing an industrial hopper for special materials handling requirements. Reputable manufacturers have their sales and engineering staff that can determine your specific ideas and needs for a unique industrial hopper design.
