SAMSON Eco Hoppers

Cost-effective and environmentally friendly import hoppers for efficient intake of dry bulk materials

The SAMSON Eco Hopper is an ecologically sensitive solution fulfilling all needs for the efficient import of dry bulk cargoes. The hoppers are designed to suit the characteristics and flow properties of virtually any bulk material. Rates of 5,000 tons per hour may be achieved, subject to grab crane performance. The throughput of the terminal can be increased by adding one or more hoppers, and ensuring that onward handling systems can accommodate the increased capacity.
