Gruber Systems offers a variety of Ground Hoppers for a variety of applications - including Cultured Marble, Solid Surface, Polymer Concrete and other Bulk Powder metering or conveying requirements.
Cultured Marble/Onyx/Stone Manufacturing with an Autocaster™ or Batchmaster™ machine.
Solid Surface Manufacturing with an Autocaster or Batchmaster machine.
Polymer Concrete Manufacturing
Bulk Filler Metering for other Batching Applications
Our standard auger-driven transport system Ground Hopper provides reliable conveying of powders such as calcium carbonate blends, ATH blends, as well as granules and other fine particle or lightweight fillers to fill the metering hoppers of Autocaster and Batchmaster metering machines. Does not include self-metering.
The Self-Metering Ground Hopper combines a robust ground hopper containing a solid core auger with a PLC control system. The result is a stand alone ground hopper that can be calibrated and set to dispense specified amounts of filler in any desired mixing vessel. A touch screen interface allows the user to specify the desired amount of filler to be dispensed or use one of 4 preset amounts.
NOTE: Designed for use for Bulk Filler
Metering for other Batching Applications,
and are not used with Autocaster casting
or Batchmaster batching machines.
Automated metering of lightweight powder bulk filler over extended distances utilizing a positive pneumatic pressure (air) transport system.
Automatically meter and transfer lightweight filler material over extended distances with a Pneumatic-transport Ground Hopper. This eliminates the requirement for an auger, and allows the Ground Hopper to be placed in a more remote location - out of the way of the Autocaster casting system or the Batchmaster mixing station.
For situations where you need your Ground Hopper to be movable or portable.
In some cases, your bulk filler handling system is not required to be a fixed location, and you may benefit by moving your Gruber Ground Hopper to where you need it for a given use. Portability offers added convenience and added value to your Bulk Filler Handling investment.
Special version Gruber Ground Hopper and Bulk Bag Suspender Frame option for use with the Batchmaster III Metering System.
Designed to handle the demanding requirements of metering large rock or highly abrasive aggregates for polymer concrete and other specialized cast polymer manufacturing applications.
Auger-based Ground Hopper configured for processing of larger aggregates such as quartz, sand, pea gravel or small rock of up to 3/8” (7 mm) diameter often used in Polymer Concrete and other cast polymer manufacturing applications.
Auger-based Ground Hopper configured for processing of smaller aggregates such as sand, small pea gravel, as well as powders such as calcium carbonate or dolomite often used in Polymer Concrete and other cast polymer manufacturing applications.
For lightweight powders such as Calcium Carbonate blends or ATH blends, choose from our Standard Auger-driven Ground Hopper, or a Pneumatic Transport Ground Hopper that offers some advantages over the auger-driven model.
