Advice on how to use hoppers
In order to handle sticky materials such as wet sand, concrete, etc. , causing possible clogging the outlet system, we recommend using a vibrating motor or a pneumatic percussive tool to avoid this. The vibrating or percussive tool can be put onto the hopper wall to perform vibration or successive impacts without damaging it. The resulting vibrations or hammering will help avoiding the flow to clogg.
The hopper can also be lined with special plates to reduce friction between wall and material and consequently avoiding sticking.
A realigning hopper can be used to transfer compost from a 1200 mm wide conveyor to a 400 mm wide conveyor by means of reducing the cross section or to a hopper with a collecting tank on a chassis frame controlled by a conveyor equipped with orientation wheels
