Shick Esteve scaling and receiving hoppers are used in pressure, vacuum and gravity applications. These concentric and eccentric units are available in a wide range of capacities and are most often filled pneumatically through the use of a Shick Esteve diverter valve. The eccentric hopper design is often used when multiple vessels/scales share a common discharge point or area.
- Materials Of Construction: ASTM 36 carbon steel or ASTM A240 304 S/S sheet metal.
- Carbon Steel Finishes: Internal welds are ground to a 120-grit finish on weld seams only; internal finish is clear phenolic or epoxy; external paint primed with white enamel finish coat.
- Stainless Steel Finishes: Interior welds ground to a 120-grit finish; exterior welds to be cleaned; sheet is a 2B mill finish (internal) and matte glass bead blast (external).
- Easy Installation: With (3) application-specific support lugs at 120º circumference to accept compression load cells or hanger rods with tension load cells.
- 60 Degree Slope: Standarddesigned to encourage thedischarge of material; otherslopes available.
- Access Door: A removable, flush-fitting access door is provided in the cone section.
- Finish: Stainless 4B finish sheet with interior welds ground to a 180-grit finish; others available
- Vibrator/Aeration: Air-impacting vibrators or aerating Solimar(s) assist the flow of dry material from any scale hopper; others available
- Load Cells: Compression for mezzanine applications or tension load cell kits for hanging applications are available in a wide range of sizes, depending on the size of the scale hopper and weight of material; load cell kits include 3 load cells, summing box, electrical kit (tension), cable and suspension.
Capacities based on 20º product angle of repose, 60º hopper and center fill via a Shick bottom diverter valve
