Gruber Systems offers a variety of Ground Hoppers for a variety of applications - including Cultured Marble, Solid Surface, Polymer-infused Concrete and other Bulk Powder metering or conveying requirements:
Find your Ground Hopper by application:
- For use with an Autocaster™ continuous casting system.
- For use with a Batchmaster™ batching machine.
- Stand-alone use or used with other equipment besides our Autocaster or Batchmaster machines.
- For metering aggregate fillers for Polymer Concrete Manufacturing
Ground Hoppers for standalone applications (not involving an Autocaster or Batchmaster) include:
This all new Weight-Loss Self-Metering Ground Hopper that utilizes load cells and a sophisticated PLC Control System for precise weight-loss powder metering for a wide variety of metering, batching and conveying applications. Machine control is provided by a PLC-equipped Control Panel
Ground Hoppers for use with Gruber Autocaster Continuous Casting Systems include:
Our standard auger-driven transport system Ground Hopper made for use with our Autocaster casting machine provides reliable conveying of powders such as calcium carbonate blends, ATH blends, as well as granules and other fine particle or lightweight fillers. The Autocaster controls its operation. Can be used as standalone Ground Hopper, but base unit lacks controls. When not used with Autocaster, optional controls can be added including On/Off and Speed Controls.
Small Aggregate and Large Aggregate Top Mount Ground Hoppers
The Small Aggregate Ground Hopper conveys smaller aggregates such as sand, granules and small pea gravel up to 1/8" diameter, as well as granular powders.
The Large Aggregate Ground Hopper conveys larger-sized aggregates such quartz, pea gravel or small rock up to as large as 3/8" (7 mm) diameter, although it can also easily accomodate smaller aggregates such as sand, granules and very small pea gravel.
Transfer lightweight bulk fillers over extended distances to your Autocaster utilizing a positive pneumatic pressure (air) transport system. 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.
Recommended for transporting Lightweight Fillers to the Autocaster casting machine from Ground Hoppers located at greater distances:
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.
Ground Hoppers for use with Gruber Batchmaster batching machines include:
Our standard auger-driven transport system Ground Hopper made for use with our Batchmaster batching machine provides reliable conveying of powders such as calcium carbonate blends, ATH blends, as well as granules and other fine particle or lightweight fillers. The Batchmaster machine controls its operation.
