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, to create an continuous supply of bulk filler to a production line. Ordinarily, these are used to supply an Autocaster or other continuous casting machine that requires staged bulk filler supply to avoid delays in reloading bulk fillers.

Bulk Bag Roller Conveyors are used with Gruber Bulk Bag Gantries to easily transport bulk fillers from a point where the bulk super sacks are loaded onto the conveyor with a fork-lift. They then roll easily down the line to the casting location - where typically one or more Ground Hoppers are installed to meter bulk materials to the Autocaster continuous casting system. A Bulk Bag Gantry is placed over the Ground Hopper. The Ground Hopper is continuously metering bulk fillers to the Autocaster, and in turn, a Bulk Bag Gantry is periodically hoisting a new super sack of filler above the Ground Hopper, where it is then emptied into the Ground Hopper to continue production without any costly delay that would ordinarily be required for manual loading.

Efficiently loading and staging Bulk Fillers (powders like calcium carbonate, sand, gravel, rock or other aggregates) allows your continuous casting production line to continue operating without the need to stop and resupply the system with bulk filler materials.

Conveyors are heavy duty 2” diameter, 12-gauge galvanized steel rollers; with roll-formed heavy-gauge galvanized steel channels.  Channels are reinforced laterally with cross-braces. Conveyors are secured to the floor with appropriate concrete fasteners (e.g. "red-heads").
