Handle and place concrete faster and more accurately with a Concrete Hopper. Each hopper is rotationally molded with industrial grade polyethylene to create a sturdy and easy-to-clean funnel shape. The standard design is lighter in weight for easy handling and has optional 6”-8”-12” openings. The heavy-duty design is reinforced at the top with a steel frame and has optional 8”-12” openings. Both designs have an upset near the opening for clamping Elephant Trunk and steel attachment points for the accessory chains.
The Tremie Pipe is also molded with industrial grade polyethylene to create a sturdy and easy-to-clean drop chute for concrete placement. The pipe can be attached to a Concrete Hopper using the connecting chains near one end. The other end of the pipe has steel attachment points which can be used for connecting another Tremie Pipe or Steel Collar.
Collar and Trunk
A Steel Collar provides a transition to the Elephant Trunk needed to control concrete placement. Each collar is formed with an upset near the opening for clamping the trunk. Elephant Trunk is typically cutto-length on the site to match concrete placement needs. Longer lengths may be needed to control wall placements, shorter lengths may be needed to control slab placements. After cutting to proper size, the trunk is attached to the Concrete Hopper funnel or Steel Collar with an Adjustable Band Clamp. The trunk and clamp are sleeved over the opening and secured to the hopper funnel or steel collar.
