Homer City Automation’s Conical Bulk Hopper Feeder was designed using proper mass flow principles. This conical hopper will promote first-in, first-out of bulk materials. The optimized valley angles of the conical hopper will eliminate bridging as well as rat holing.
The valley angles will eliminate material buildup when problematic materials are handled. Best of all, the design of this conical hopper allows for cost-effective fabrication and can easily conform to FDA specifications, which results in an improved price alternative to conventional spun hoppers.
