I am not able to get the sand pass through a funnel - getting it exploding: https://vimeo.com/127637929 [vimeo.com] - the file is attached.

Is there a link to a successful demonstration, and helpfully with instruction how to do it?

Another failure I get is here: https://vimeo.com/127591250 [vimeo.com]

Your collision object should be a closed surface. At the moment the resulting collision volume looks like the attached.

As a quickie fix (also attached) you can change the volume creation mode from Ray Intersect to Minimum and add a small Offset Surface value, but in the long run it is better to get used to creating closed surfaces for your collision objects.
