The Powder-Saver hopper container allows powders, granules, flakes, and other dry products to be accurately dispensed in measured amounts to prevent material waste and meet required batch or shot weight specifications.

Ideal for foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, inks, coatings, plastics, and other dry materials drawn for production, the Powder-Saver features a proprietary design setting a conical, plastic hopper with a slide gate valve set within a squared, companion, forkliftable base. The durable, removable base allows the entire hopper to be safely moved by lift truck, stacked covered during transport and racked for neat, orderly storage and warehousing.

The rigid Powder-Saver hopper container offers a cleaner, easier way to move, store, and dispense dry products than bulk bags, corrugated boxes, and flexible intermediate bulk containers, while also eliminating the spills and product loss from torn or ruptured bags. The reusable Powder-Saver hopper container, base, and cover are rotationally molded from 100% waterproof, chemical-, and UV-resistant polyethylene plastic. The translucent hopper holds 31 cu ft of material and includes molded-in fill level indicators for visual monitoring and the base offers convenient, four-way lift access. The unit measures 45¾ x 45¾ x 48½ in. tall. The unit comes in a choice of valve options.
