Hopper Conversion Doors are operated by a hydraulic pumping system. As many as six hoppers can be operated from one pumping unit as long as only one hopper door assembly is opened or closed at a time. One pumping unit can operate multiple seed houses as long as they are located in close proximity to one another.
Pumping Unit and Control includes:
Pumping unit for operation of up to six hydraulic doors - 5 GPM, 2100 PSI, 7 - 1/2 HP
Pump Start Main Control - Custom designed as a Master Control to provide dual voltages for power and control. This unit incorporates a NEMA 3R rain-tight enclosure that contains a main disconnect / circuit breaker with the motor starter / electronic overload relay system. The pre-wiring facilitates ease of field-wiring so that the electrician only needs to provide one three-phase service to this main unit.

Annual Maintenance Recommendations
All proper safety precautions should be taken by all personnel who perform maintenance and repairs on elevated seed houses.
Clean out all seed.
Clean hopper panels to remove seed oil. Many gins report good results with steam cleaning.
Make the hopper surfaces smooth again! Many gins report good results with a sander or steel brush.
Examine for stress fractures and loose hardware. Repair or replace as necessary.
Remove rust and corrosion.
Add proper guards or fall protection devices on exterior inspection ladders.
Post decals “DANGER - DO NOT ENTER AREA BELOW HOPPER DOORS WHEN SEED IS IN STORAGE HOUSE.” Decals are available at no charge from Cliff Granberry Corp.
Add Hopper Conversion Kit if the seed house is in reasonably good condition.
If repairs are too extensive, replace with new Elevated Seed House.
