Self-Dumping Hopper

April 6, 2009
This self-dumping hopper simplifies the disposal of dust captured by cartridge-style dust collection systems. Easier to use than conventional barrels or collection drums, the hopper is offered in two capacities (1 and 2 cu yd) and is ideal for a full range of dry dusts, including those that must be reclaimed or recycled after the collection process. The entire assembly is designed to provide easy dust disposal while protecting against unwanted dust leakage between the collector and hopper. A slide gate and flexible quick-disconnect hose connect the two components and the hopper lid is fastened with rubber clamps that create a gasketed seal to prevent dust from escaping. When the hopper is full, the user detaches it from the bottom of the collector, lifts the hopper onto a fork truck, and simply pulls a lever to swing the lid open and dump the contents into a larger disposal container.
