Stainless Steel Cone Hopper

A customer in the food production industry contracted us to fabricate this cone hopper for one of their food production facilities. Fabrication required sawing and shearing of 304 stainless steel sheet and pipe. Some components required custom machining which we performed in-house, as well as all of the welding required to assemble this 16’ high, 72” wide cone. Various surfaces required a 2-B polished finish which was also completed in-house.

This unique unit was fabricated to tolerances of ±0.060” and was subject to various dimensional inspection at each stage of fabrication. To learn more about this project, or the processes used to fabricate it, see the table below or contact us directly.
