Feeding hopper

for feeding of bags

Your AZO advantages

  • Round and sturdy
  • Without dead corners
  • Availability either in epoxy-coated mild steel or in stainless steel with 6 different surface finishes
  • Individual filter or central dust extraction by vacuum
  • Option of integrated vibration pre-screen
  • Discharge of flow-resistant materials can be supported by rapper, vibrator, vibration bottom or by fluidizing
  • Outlet optimally adaptable to downstream systems

Preferred applications

Feeding of powdery or granular bulk materials and feeding into closed material handling or pneumatic conveying systems. AZO standard feeding hoppers can be used for foodstuffs, plastics, chemicals and pharmaceuticals with highest requirements, because of the availability of different materials and surface finishes.

Design

AZO standard feeding hoppers are available in two different material versions - mild steel or stainless steel with six different surface finishes. The feeding hopper is equipped with a tight-closing, lockable cover with vacuum valve, two gas pressure springs for fixing the cover as well as a grid and a bag support. 
The hoppers are available either with mounted filters or with central aspiration. It is possible to integrate a vibration pre-screen for entry control. The hopper outlet is equipped with a flange for downstream systems like rotary feeders, screeners etc. Discharge of flow-resistant products can be supported by using a rapper, vibrator, vibration bottom or by fluidization. The execution highly depends on customer requirements, material used and situation on site.
