Follow these requirements for dumpbins and blenders.

Dumpbin and blender
The part of the flour handling system where the containers of flour are emptied.
You must:
(1) Make sure dumpbin and blender hoods are large enough to prevent circulation of flour dust outside the hoods.
(2) Provide a stop control device for dumpbins and blenders located close to the operator's work station.
(3) Position dumpbins at an appropriate height from the floor so that operators can dump flour from bags without excessive strain or fatigue.
(4) Provide a bag rest stop, when the edge of a dumpbin is more than twenty-four inches above the floor.
