3.0 Stainless steel hoppers

The filling of drums and the transfer of their contents are special situations, since each time the product comes into contact with the environment. We manufacture stainless steel hoppers for different industrial processes. Symmetric and asymmetric hoppers with shut-off butterfly valves in nominal diameters up to 300 mm make the complete operation dust-free and waste-free, and are not restricted only to Müller drums. Various cones and discharge aids, from rotary hooks to pneumatic vibrators, contribute to a problem-free emptying process.And the beauty of it is that the stainless steel hopper is only fitted when and where it is needed. This saves space and is highly cost-effective.
