Conveyors, Ducting and Hoppers
Conveyor systems are commonly used in many industries, including the automotive, agricultural, computer, electronic, food processing, aerospace, pharmaceutical, chemical, bottling and canning, print finishing and packaging. Although a wide variety of materials can be conveyed, some of the most common include food items such as beans and nuts, bottles and cans, automotive components, scrap metal, pills and powders, wood and furniture and grain and animal feed. Many factors are important in the accurate selection of a conveyor system. It is important to know how the conveyor system will be used beforehand. Some individual areas that are helpful to consider are the required conveyor operations, such as transportation, accumulation and sorting, the material sizes, weights and shapes and where the loading and pickup points need to be.
Ducts are used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) to deliver and remove air. These needed airflows include, for example, supply air, return air, and exhaust air. Ducts also deliver, most commonly as part of the supply air, ventilation air. As such, air ducts are one method of ensuring acceptable indoor air quality as well as thermal comfort.
A duct system is often called ductwork. Planning ('laying out'), sizing, optimizing, detailing, and finding the pressure losses through a duct system is called duct design.
With a holding the variety of shapes and sizes they come in make Hoppers a versatile piece of equipment for many industries and businesses. Hoppers can be used for storage, recycling, trash pickup and trash removal, as well as being used in the manufacturing process of many products. Our industrial storage bins are also stackable, an important space saving feature in the industrial and manufacturing setting.
On construction sites, workers use industrial storage bins to clean as they go instead of expending time and energy to manually pick up wood scraps, metal turnings, and other building refuse. Plus, with the addition of optional casters it means that workers can move hoppers where they need them to be.  Whether that means simply taking metal scraps from one side of a warehouse to another or moving roof tear off, nails, and left over wall board from the construction site to an offsite dumping facility, it can be accomplished easily and efficiently with hoppers.
