Types of Biomass Boiler Hoppers

Fully automated hoppers

 The large systems often require a specially designed silo; these (in new build properties) are often designed-in as the property will be developed with the boiler’s needs in mind. For retro-fit applications, shipping containers can be adapted to function as the hopper or pre-made large scale hoppers can be purchased. There are five main types of hopper currently available: 

Steel Hoppers –many different sizes available but can be fitted very fast.


Fabric Hoppers –  Available in a variety of sizes and capabilities and can be adjusted in height to maximize fuel storage
