Intercept Hoppers

How They Work

Multi-Vac Intercept Hoppers are used to reclaim picked up material or separate out material of different bulk densities. The heavier material drops out of the air-stream into the Intercept Hopper, while the remaining dust and fine particles continue on and are collected at the main filter/receiver/hopper of the vacuum source.

For example, the Stationary Intercept Hopper is used in asbestos removal applications to provide a dustless collection of the material and dustless discharging to Super Sacks for disposal.

Steel shot can also be reclaimed using Stationary Intercept Hoppers to capture the heavier material, while the dust travels to the filter/receiver/hopper. The reclaimed steel shot is dumped back into the system through a cleaner.

Intercept Hopper Facts

  1. A properly sized and installed Intercept Hopper can reclaim or separate 90 – 95% of collected material.
  2. Intercept Hoppers are used in high temperature pick up applications.
  3. Intercept Hoppers can be used to load a bin or silo.
  4. Our Intercept Hopper is equipped with a high level probe, unless otherwise specified by customer.
  5. The addition of perforated baffles and drains allows water or oil separation from the material.
