We also design and furnish many other solutions. Please give us the opportunity to help you with your
Bulk Material Handling problems/requirements.
Our experience with designing and manufacturing bulk material handling equipment such as Live Bottom
Bins and Feeders, Drag Chain Reclaim Systems, Storage Bins and Silos as well as Weighing Systems gives
us the ability to help you choose the proper system for your needs--even if it is unconventional.
For several clients we were able to demonstrate the effectiveness of using Wall Hoppers. (See the
"WallHoppers" in the downloads section for more
information and pictures.) These are used when unloading Walking Floor Trailers and are suitable for
use in applications handling a wide variety of shredded material, such as: Sawdust, Wood Shavings,
Recycled Plastic, Rubber, Paper, etc.
Our deep engineering experience helped us show that the “Wobble-Flight” configuration of a wall hopper
has several advantages over a conventional spike roll de-lumper:
The larger OD allows for slower rotating speed, which transfers more torque into de-lumping.
The saw-tooth design is considered “self-cleaning” and much less likely to become
entangled in stringy materials.
The mass of the full flight makes this arrangement significantly less susceptible to bending and
Typically the Wobble Flights are positioned near the top and middle of the incoming mass and rotate to
help Claw, Shred and/or Tear the Material off the mass being pushed out of the Trailer. As the material
falls to the bottom of the hopper, there will be either a Screw Feeder, Belt Feeder or Drag feeder,
sized for the application, to move the material into the first stage of whatever process is used at
this particular location.
