A wide range of intake hoppers

The Mepu range includes small and large hoppers to meet the needs of all customers. We offer drive-over hoppers, self-supporting hoppers equipped with chain conveyor, and traditional intake pits for dryer houses. The hoppers are assembled using bolted joints.

The chain conveyors and bucket elevators of Mepu hoppers are seamlessly compatible with Mepu dryers and other equipment. Owing to our wide product range, assembly of functional solutions excellent for grain handling is easy.

Longitudinal and transverse intake hopper

A traditional 1,3m3 hopper compatible with all dryers, the auger of which moves the grain gently to the elevator. The hopper of the bucket elevator model is equipped with its own motor. The hopper configuration can be switched.

 

Intake pit

The simple and robust intake pit assembled inside concrete walls by bolted joints is good for dryer houses and mobile dryers equipped with a bucket elevator. The intake pit can be connected directly to the bucket elevator, in which case the grain flows by gravity.

Grates and support set assembled by bolted joints under the hopper are available as accessories.

Low intake hopper with chain conveyor

A hopper set assembled on level ground and including a chain conveyor and the required elevator connection components. You can load a larger amount of grain into the hopper and the chain conveyor takes care of transporting the grain. The chain conveyor is chosen based on the bucket elevator’s performance. The hopper does not require additional support structures around it. The tipping height exceeds that of the lower options.

Intake hopper with chain conveyor

A low and light hopper quickly assembled on level ground, includes a chain conveyor and pivoted couplings for connection to the elevator. This means that the hopper can be positioned quite freely with respect to the elevator. The chain conveyor is chosen based on the bucket elevator’s performance.

Large intake hopper with chain conveyor

A more robust version of the low Mepu hopper with the same features. Compatible with all dryers equipped with a bucket elevator. Owing to the great size, the hopper can also be used for grain storage.

For large intake hoppers (length 3180mm or 4270mm) there’s available steel canopy as an option! Canopy height can be increased with extra layers.

Drive-over intake hopper

Intake hopper assembled inside concrete walls and equipped with an efficient chain conveyor for applications that require a large grain reception capacity. The width of the drive-over hopper is always three metres; the length may vary between three and five metres (with 50cm increments).

The hopper is steep-sided and smooth-surfaced, which efficiently prevents arching. Cleaning of the hopper is easy owing to a manhole in the side wall.

The additional equipment available includes support beams for embedding in cast concrete and sturdy grates allowing driving over the hopper by tractor or truck. The chain conveyor is chosen based on the bucket elevator’s performance.
