October 2006 – Product Of The Month

Dust Busting Dust Suppression Hoppers Win Innovation Award

The October Product of the Month is the Dust Suppression Hopper from DSH Systems Limited in New Zealand. This feature position coincides with the announcement that the company was joint winner of the “Innovative Technology Award” at the recent BulkEx 2006 Exhibition in Melbourne. “To be recognized by the experts in the bulk materials handling industry was a great honour” said Judi Schwass of DSH. Commenting further, she added, “It is very gratifying and will go a long way to dispelling the myth that the hopper is a product of trick photography!”

DSH (dust suppression hoppers) are quite simply “dust-busters” at the point of loading, whether into trucks, wagons or storage heaps. In operation, the award-winning hopper concentrates a stream of dry goods into a solid column, like a funnel, minimising dust outfall and saving waste product. The hoppers come in several sizes and are rotationally moulded polyethylene plastic or fabricated from stainless steel for food grade situations.

When there is a requirement to load-out different products of varying weight on the same conveyor system, a PLC control and load cell can regulate the hopper, thus increasing its versatility.

DSH hoppers are enjoying remarkable success in Australasia with successful installations in fertilizer, grain, lime, wheat, barley combings, stock foods and sugar companies. “We are now receiving considerable global interest and the future looks very exciting,” Judi said.
