Steel Hopper for Material Handling
When you need the strength and durability of a steel hopper, look no further than Roura Material Handling. In addition to our traditional self-dumping hoppers, we also offer specialty hoppers in stainless steel and galvanized steel.
Galvanized Steel Hoppers
Galvanized steel hoppers are ideal for farms, fisheries, and waste water treatment. While the pierced, pointed trunnion track with taper pins provides resistance to damage, this hopper is really suited to applications that require resistance to corrosion. The following features are incorporated to prevent corrosion over time:
- Hot-Dip Galvanization: The steel body of the hopper is submerged into a tank of melted zinc and allowed to react with the atmosphere.
- Mild Steel Construction: This alloy contains a small amount of carbon, making it both tough and affordable.
Stainless Steel Hoppers
Due to the stainless steel hopper’s sliced and ejected trunnion track, wear over time is greatly reduced. The stainless steel hopper is best suited for chemical plants, as well as farms and businesses in the food and beverage industry. Its austenitic stainless steel construction gives it superior resistance to corrosion.
