building a hopper for (grain) truck unloading

07/28/2008 2:58 PM

Hi

I need the construction specifications and drawings to know how to build a hopper for truck unloading.

I am not even sure of how it is called in English. In Uruguay and Argentina we call it 'chancho'. In Brazil it is called 'moega de descarga'.

This thing is a hole in the ground where the trucks throw the grain, and there a screw conveyor or some other equipment takes the grain up for storage or processing.

Hmm, Engineers usually get paid to design such things, so I suspect they won't readily supply their own proprietary work products for free.

For the colleagues. I recently found out this.

The receiving hopper must be 4200 x 6000 mm at the top, and have a slope to the bottom of 38ยบ. You may add a straight wall to increase the capacity.

It is made using the technology that is usual for swimming pools. You might use concrete, bricks and even prefabricated parts.
