Bulk Powder Handling products include Ground Hoppers, Bulk Bag Gantries, Bulk Bag Suspenders, Bulk Bag Roller Conveyors and more.
Gruber Ground Hoppers meter and convey bulk fillers to the point of use (usually a Gruber Autocaster continuous casting machine. Ground Hoppers are offered for a variety of applications - including Cultured Marble, Solid Surface, Polymer Concrete and other Bulk Powder metering or conveying requirements - for all types of bulk fillers such as powders, granules, aggregates and even larger stone.
The optional Bulk Bag Suspender Frame allows the option of mounting larger, more economical bulk bags (“Super Sacks”) above Gruber’s Ground Hopper™ bulk solids conveyors. Mounting large bulk bags reduce interruptions during the manufacturing process, and reduces labor costs normally associated with manual loading of a metering or feed hopper – particularly when compared to manual loading of smaller bulk material bags. Automation of the bulk material handling system also results in a cleaner, safer working environment and more efficient manufacturing workflow.
Easily handle and transport Bulk Filler "Supersacks" with a Bulk Bag Grantry. Easily transport Supersacks on pallets into position, then using the Bulk Bag Gantry with a Bulk Bag Suspender Cross Frame (shown below), lift the supersack onto the Bulk Bag Suspender Frame mounted to the top of the Ground Hopper for added filler capacity, greater convenience and fewer interruptions to your busy casting station to refill filler materials.
This unit is attached to the Hoist on the Bulk Bag Gantry, and includes four hooked ends to easily attach and lift Supersacks over the Ground Hopper.
Bulk Bag Roller Conveyors facilitate the movement and storage of pallets containing bulk bags (super sacks) from a fork-lift access point to a Bulk Bag Gantry.
