Did you know that some box dumpers are designed for grain and similar materials? One example of this is made by a company that includes a system that seals the load after it fills up the box dumper, which then transfers the load into a "feed hopper". This system was created to address concerns over contamination during the transfer process; the seal system protects the grain or feed from dirt and debris as it is moved into the feed hopper. It's an innovative use of technology most commonly associated with warehouse and similar operations. If you are considering using such a system, be sure to purchase one that won't trap the material in crevices, and has "continuous welds."
