VAC-U-MAX dump hoppers allow for extended vacuuming times and large-volume recovery of dry materials only. The heavy-duty reinforced containers are constructed of carbon steel with a grey epoxy finish, and are rated for 16” Hg (220” / 5500 mm waterlift) maximum vacuum.
Compared to self-dumping (roll-forward) hoppers:
Bottom discharge style keeps the center of gravity close to the forklift mast and eliminates potential pinch points
322-01 Bottom Discharge Hopper, eliminates sudden roll-forward shift of weight and center of gravity.
