Industrial companies require industrial solutions. Whether you’re hauling inventory across your warehouse or clearing a commercial construction site of debris, you need heavy duty hopper bins that are tough enough for your project. At Roura Material Handling, we pride ourselves in manufacturing a wide selection of durable, reliable and customizable self dumping hoppers for all your industrial and manufacturing needs.

Industrial Hoppers

When shopping for a industrial hopper, it’s essential that you find the right size for your project. If you purchase a hopper that’s too large for your needs, your forklift will be unnecessarily weighed down and difficult to navigate. On the other hand, a small hopper may not have the cargo load that you need to finish the job on time.

Our hoppers come in a wide range of sizes, from the Durable hopper, which carries up to 4,000 pounds and 1/8 of a cubic yard, to the industrial-strength Behemoth, which carries an impressive 10,000 pounds and 10 cubic yards.

If you don’t see a size you need, contact our engineers. Because we design and fabricate our own hoppers, we can create any size hopper bin you need. From small carts to massive hoppers, we’ll work with you to create a design that fits your needs and is easy to navigate around your factory or job site.

Customized for Your Project

Industrial and manufacturing companies require specialized tools for fine-tuned results. Don’t settle with a standardized hopper for your specialized needs. Roura Material Handling can design and fabricate heavy duty hoppers to your specifications.

If you need a hopper bin for your cardboard recycling, we can create one the exact size you need. We use durable carbon steel construction that features continuous welding for maximum strength. From liquid hauling to stone and masonry applications, no two hoppers are alike. A durable coating allows your hopper to remain outdoors and handle a wide range of temperatures, hard or sharp objects and a significant amount of weight without compromising the structure of your hopper.

Once you’ve contacted our engineers about designing a hopper for your company, browse our selection of add-ons for increased flexibility. Hoppers can be fitted with casters, push handles, dynamic release systems or painted and branded to match your company trucks and machinery.

High Volume and Load Capacity

Our bin dumpers come in a variety of sizes to meet your needs. It’s no secret that our company has been producing industry-leading hoppers since the 1940s. Choose a rotator box and enjoy these volume and load capacity benefits:

  • 1/2 cubic yard to 2 cubic yards
  • 2,000-pound load capacity
  • Four-way entry
  • Drain and plug
  • 12-gauge carbon steel sides and bottom

If you can’t find a heavy duty hopper bin that offers the volume or load capacity you need, you can custom-order a bin. Because our team fabricates these boxes, we can accommodate a wide variety of specialty product needs. While the load capacity remains the same, dumpers can be adjusted to fit new sizes and shapes of material. Plastic lids, rotating systems and attachments for innovative projects are all available.

Specialty Industrial Hoppers to Meet Your Needs

For well over 100 years, Roura has consistently raised the bar as a custom designer, innovator, and steel fabricator of specialty industrial hoppers and heavy-duty hopper bins. Each of the following models can be customized to fit your company’s unique material handling needs, or can be purchased as a standard hopper

90° Self-Dumping Hopper

Roura’s 90° self-dumping hoppers are fabricated from ¼” carbon steel and have a load capacity between 1,000 to 2,000 lbs, and a volume capacity between 1/4 and 1/2 cubic yards.

These industrial hoppers are the ideal solution for collecting shavings, turnings, sawdust, wood chips, metal chips, and other types of material shavings. All 90° industrial hoppers come complete with 1 1/4 hinge pins, and a heavy-duty mast-to-hopper secure chain with grab hook.

Dewatering Heavy-Duty Hopper

With a load capacity of up to 6,000 lbs and a volume capacity of three cubic yards, Roura’s Dewatering heavy-duty hopper bin is a must-have material handling solution for any manufacturer dealing with pulp processing, water, or sewage applications. All dewatering hoppers are fabricated from ¼” carbon steel and include perforated and distended trunnion paths with taper pins.

Dross Self-Dumping Hopper

Roura’s Dross self-dumping hopper can hold up to 10,000 lbs of waste, and is the perfect solution for hot glass, forgings, or any other application where handling and disposing of hot material is required. This hopper’s features include a pointed and pierced trunnion track with taper pins, heavy-duty double wall construction, and a 3/8”-thick plate liner with 1/4” perforated side walls.

Rotator Boxes

Each of our standard rotator boxes can be dumped easily with a rotating forklift attachment. These rugged boxes are capable of hauling heavy loads and are accessible from all four sides with your forklift. Whether you’re storing bulk materials outdoors or transporting products throughout your warehouse, find the perfect size to fit your specifications.

Thanks to the durable coating on each bin dumper design, you can enjoy rust and corrosion protection for indoor and outdoor use. Whether you’re hauling wet scrap materials or your outdoor bin collects rainwater, the durable coating and standard drain plug allow you to keep your bin outside without damaging it.

Using Your Forklift Rotator Boxes

For a more specialized product, choose one of our forklift hopper bin models designed for cardboard corrugated boxes. Otherwise known as Gaylord rotator boxes, these specialty designs work with a range of boxes and have adjustable containing arms for maximum efficiency. Simply follow these steps to ensure streamlined use of your new bin dumper:

  • Insert a cardboard corrugated box into your unique dumper.
  • Adjust the containing arm to secure the cardboard box.
  • When ready, empty the contents of the box while still holding the cardboard box secure.
  • Safely return the dumper to the ground and remove the box.
  • Recycle or reuse your corrugated cardboard box and insert a new box into your hopper.

Rotator boxes can protect your cardboard corrugated boxes and extend their lifespan. They also allow you to easily reposition and dump the boxes with your forklift. When it comes to convenient carrying, loading and dumping, few products can compare to these specialized bin dumpers.

Select the right size to fit your needs. These bins come in two basic sizes, but each one can be personalized depending on your particular industrial needs. Larger or smaller boxes can also be fabricated for unusual-sized cardboard corrugated boxes.

Safe and Secure Worksites

Contractors and material storage companies are constantly looking for ways to operate more efficiently without sacrificing quality. Technology helps keep logistical areas running smoothly, but innovative developers have also come up with equipment that helps keep hauling and storage operations safe and cost-effective as well.

For example, using a forklift hopper or rotator box to hold materials and debris has multiple benefits. In addition to using this cleverly designed storage container, there are also other ways to keep your worksite safe, which gives you good business results in the long run.
