Application: Conveying of bulk ingredients
Bulk filler handling systems can be integrated with your continuous casting system, and metering or batching systems to reduce labor cost, improve production efficiencies, reduce wastage (material cost), and likely reduce overhead costs.
Gruber Ground Hoppers include:
Ground Hopper Accessories
In addition to our Ground Hoppers, we offer a complete group of related accessories to further automate your workflow:
Bulk Bag Suspender Frame - The optional Bulk Bag Suspender Frame allows the option of mounting larger, more economical bulk bags (“Super Sacks”) above Gruber’s Ground Hopper™ bulk solids conveyors. Mounting large bulk bags reduce interruptions during the manufacturing process, and reduces labor costs normally associated with manual loading of a metering or feed hopper – particularly when compared to manual loading of smaller bulk material bags. Automation of the bulk material handling system also results in a cleaner, safer working environment and more efficient manufacturing workflow.
Bulk Bag Gantry - The 4-leg bulk bag gantry is used to transport a bulk bag from a pallet and suspend it over the ground hopper using a hoisted trolley.For overhead lifting and dispensing of bulk bag fillers into floor hoppers for automated casting machines or automated batching systems
Bulk Bag Roller Conveyor - Bulk bag conveyors facilitate the movement and storage of pallets containing bulk bags (super sacks) from a fork-lift access point to a Bulk Bag Gantry (also available separately).
Mobile Upgrade Options - Upgrade a standard Ground Hopper or purchase one already configured for portability to service multiple casting, batching or mixing stations - such as day tanks, multiple Autocasters, or other requirements.
Automatic Casting Tables - Cart allowing repositioning and height adjustments to your existing conveyor system and the Autocaster.
