The Self-Metering Ground Hopper combines a robust ground hopper containing combined with a sophisticated PLC control system that provides touch-screen control of a conveying and metering system to deliver bulk materials to any mixing vessel.
The Self-Metering 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 material metering and/or dispensing applications, and are not used with Autocaster casting or Batchmaster batching machines.
Depending upon the user’s requirements, the Self-Metering Ground Hopper can work with either bulk bags (super sacks) or individual bags of filler that have been manually loaded. A Bulk Bag Suspender Frame or a Bulk Bag Gantry can be used to position bulk bags over the Ground Hopper. A Bulk Bag Conveyor (Pallet Conveyor) can be used to easily position pallets of filler under the hoist on Bulk Bag Gantry.
