A vessel for carrying waste, garbage, etc., out to sea, so constructed as to discharge its load by a mechanical contrivance; -- called also dumping scow.
The solid chemical (cal hypo) reservoir of the chlorinator.
n: a large funnel- or cone-shaped device into which dry components (such as powdered clay or cement) can be poured to later mix with water or other liquids. The dry component is educted through a nozzle at the bottom of the hopper.
See AUTOMATIC FEEDER.
Sloping panels at bottom of tank which direct dry bulk solids to the outlet piping.
A feed bin angled towards the outlet.
large funnel to hold material until ready for dispersion
funnel-shaped receptacle; contents pass by gravity into a receptacle below
a box-like bird feeder, with an automatic seed dispensing feature
a device that holds the paintballs and is attached to the paintball marker
a kind of bin, where something is held until it is ready to be dispensed
a type of bin where paper can be dumped for shredding
a viewloader it loads the paintballs into the chamber of your gun
A receptacle that holds the coins that are inserted into a gaming machine. When the hopper is full the coin is diverted to the cash box (where fitted).
A device for temporarily storing dust collected by an air pollution control device. Hoppers funnel solids into the solids handling system. There are two main types used on filtration systems: pyramidal and trough-type.

A reservoir or storage bin from which the contents can be metered into a machine or assembly operation.
The slot where paper is fed into the shredder.
A large "hopper" which holds paintballs (typically between 100 and 200), and feeds them into the marker, either by gravity (up to ~9bps), agitation (up to ~13bps), or force-feed (limited to the paint's brittleness, probably up to around 30bps in the future, right now around 23bps).
A container used to hold paintballs, usually with a lid that covers the opening where the paintballs are loaded into it, and has a feed nipple at it's bottom.
Container on top of the marker (gun) which stores and feeds paintballs into your marker. Some feed balls into your marker using gravity, some have agitators which accelerate the feeding process.
A large funnel or container through which solids may be passed and mixed with liquids; e.g., cement, drilling mud, etc.
1. Dennis; 2. a frog; 3. someone who adds hops during the beer brewing process; 4. a bin where grain is stored. 5. D6. See Spike, Seuss.
