Hopper Bins

Designed for free flowing material weighing 52 pounds per cubic foot or less

All our hopper bins come standard with:

  • Standard construction provides G115 (350 grams/M2 of zinc) galvanized steel with 28% more zinc protection than traditional bins
  • Larger 44” sidewall sheets with 4” corrugation improves grain flow, increases vertical strength and reduces build time
  • JS1000 Grade 8.2 hardware for superior corrosion protection and strength
  • All designs stress tested with accurate calculations for wind, rooftop equipment loads and snow loads
    Overhead structures engineered to hold the load for your overhead filling requirements

Bin Roof Features

12’ diameter roofs:

  • a smooth panel, sealed roof
  • 24-inch roof cap can be opened from the ground

15’- 21’ diameter roofs

  • 5 o with a 3” high ribbed roof and manway opening
  • 40” fill opening
  • Roof ladder for easy access to the roof peak

Sidewall Stiffener

  • Heavy duty wall stiffeners ensure direct weight transfer to the legs for increased support and stability
  • Hoppers use 3 stiffeners per sidewall sheet for 15’ – 21’ diameter bins and 2 per sidewall sheet for 12’ bins

Hopper Bottom

  • Hopper sheets are suspended from compression ring supported by formed, heavy gauge galvanized legs
  • 12’-18’ diameter tanks: 45-degree bottom
  • 21’ diameter tank: 40-degree bottom

Bin Filling:

  • Large 40” dia. fill hole (24” on 12’ tank)
  • Spun galvanized steel roof cap for added strength
  • cap mounted on steel rods to slide open and closed and resist wind

Large Man Hole

  • The larger oval shape makes it a comfortable fit and permits air to exhaust
  • Strong latches hold the manhole cover firmly in place
  • Door lays flat against the roof when open

Leg Anchors:

  • A galvanized bolt-on anchor bracket allows positive attachment to concrete foundation or support structure
  • Hopper legs can be shortened and the anchor bracket can be attached to the shortened leg by field drilling new holes in the legs

Upgrades and Add-Ons
