A well-constructed hopper isn’t a luxury for a busy food production facility – it is a necessity. Whether it is a tumbler, blender, or another piece of food production equipment, you’ve got to make sure it’s receiving enough product quickly to operate effectively. By adding a high-quality hopper to your facility, you won’t need to worry about rough and messy food transitions between equipment. At EnSight Solutions, we manufacture vacuum hoppers and storage hoppers for your food production needs.

Sanitation and Safety Features

As with all of our equipment, we create hoppers with sanitation and safety in the forefront of our minds. For starters, we construct each machine out of high-quality 304 stainless steel, which can last for countless years without forming bacteria-harboring dents and pits. You can also safely clean these machines with most cleaning solutions, hot water, and intense water pressure. Both of our hopper models include all continuous welds, which are less likely to trap stray food particles. In addition, each exterior surface features an easy-to-clean glass bead blast finish.

Keeping your employees safe while using our hoppers is one of our top priorities. This is why we allow our clients to customize their hoppers with additional safety features, like safety grates. Your operators will love their simplistic, easy-to-use design.

Customizable Features

At EnSight Solutions, customizable features are our specialty. We aim to make hoppers that fit your production facility’s exact needs because we understand that no two facilities are exactly the same. For example, we can place load cells on your hoppers to create an electrical signal that adapts to the product flow rate. Our storage loaders also include adjustable legs, so you can tailor them to fit the correct height. We can even add manual slide gates and air actuated slide gates on your storage hopper. The vacuum hopper also comes with its own set of unique customizable feature options. We can add Tri-Clover fittings for the vacuum operation, a ribbed vacuum hose, and quick disconnects for pumps.
