Stainless Steel Cones are used everyday through all sorts of manufacturing plants. Whatever your application, you can have your hopper or cone customized either by us or by a fabrication shop of your choice. Our off-the-shelf or customized TMS hoppers help to eliminate welds and improve product flow and sanitary conditions. We can customize your hopper or work with your fabrication shop to save you money while providing the highest quality hopper on the market.
We can customize your hopper and are also happy to work with and support a fabrication shop of your choice. Starting with our hoppers & cones typically saves money by providing a quick and inexpensive solution, while providing the highest quality, 100% seamlessly formed conical hopper funnels on the market. Our secondary options include rolling, welding, metal polishing and piercing.
While welding on the sanitary tube end fitting to the hopper cone, we use weld fixtures and techniques to provide 100% weld penetration to eliminate crack issues and improve strength versus competitors that weld from both sides. Once we complete the weld, we grind it smooth. The cone and cylinder of the hopper is one piece construction, with a tangential radius between the two. The hoppers are formed from a single piece of high quality stainless steel sheet metal, either 304 or 316 grade, sourced in the United States.
