Draining 500lb Hopper

OK so, we just got a finer abrasive to start using in our waterjet. However, we just toped off he hopper last week with what we have. How would I go about draining this hopper so I could fill it up with the awesome goodness that is 120 HPX? Thank you in advance.

Disconnect your abrasive feed line to the machine and run it into a large bucket/dumpster and turn air on to the hopper.  Let the air pressure do the work for you!!!!
