Fitted at key product interface areas, our range of product feed hoppers ensures careful handling and reduced spillage waste.

Product Hoppers Information

As part of larger systems, product hoppers are a simple and effective means of increasing control of product flows as they move through production and conveying processes.

As well as being an effective means of channelling product, hoppers can also act as a temporary store and means for metering product flow rates through a process.

Either included as part of the original design or retrofitted to existing equipment, hoppers are able to address minor production line issues, as well as solve more fundamental production problems.
