Auto Ground Hopper
The Auto 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. Depending upon the user’s requirements, the Auto 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. Bulk Bag Conveyor (Pallet Conveyor) can be used to easily position pallets of filler under the hoist on Bulk Bag Gantry.
