    Vacuum Material Handler

    Vacuum Material Handler

    This material handler design, created at this year's Farm Hack in Davis, CA, consists of a vacuum system to lift grain from a truck into to hopper below the vacuum unit. The vacuum unit is located above the machine of intended use (a grain cleaner for example). Once the vacuum hopper fills up, the vacuum is turned off and then a gate at the bottom of the vacuum hopper is opened and the grain falls down into the hopper of the grain cleaner. Areas left for research include: vacuum type, vacuum hopper geometry, vacuum hose type, automatic shut-off to prevent vacuum motor overheating, and dust safety considering static electricity. Vacuum systems like these are currently used in wood production and water related industries.
