AUGERS AND MINERAL HOPPERS

Mineral Hoppers are normally used for premixed mixtures to be conveyed to the mixer or wet feeding tank. At the conveying point of these mixtures, a flexible auger with a 40 mm pitch is used in order to obtain a low capacity and thus greater accuracy at the weighing point into the mixer.

Flexible augers are ideally suited to feeding plants and at smaller installations, are often more favorable in price than the traditional feeding plants. The system is comprised of a range of feed outlets with attachable telescopic pipe work for the automatic filling of feed dispensers.

An example of an application of a hopper is illustrated below.
