Self-Dumping Hopper Simplifies the Disposal of Dust Captured by Cartridge-Style Collection Systems

Farr Air Pollution Control (APC) has introduced a Self-Dumping Hopper that simplifies the disposal of dust captured by cartridge-style dust collection systems. Easier to use than conventional barrels or collection drums, the hopper is offered in two capacities (one and two cubic yards) and is ideal for a full range of dry dusts, including those that must be reclaimed or recycled after the collection process.

The entire Self-Dumping Hopper assembly is designed to provide easy dust disposal while protecting against unwanted dust leakage between the collector and hopper. A slide gate and a flexible quick-disconnect hose connect the two components together, and the hopper lid is fastened with rubber clamps that create a gasketed seal to prevent dust from escaping. When the hopper is full, the user detaches it from the bottom of the collector, lifts the hopper onto a fork truck and pulls a lever to swing the lid open and dump the contents into a larger disposal container.
