LIMAS BULK HOPPERS
Limas manufactures bulk hoppers to provide a controllable infeed of raw material to process lines. The necessity to temporarily store the raw material whilst unloading from containers or trailers is obvious. However, many manufacturers ignore the vital control element which sets the line rate for the whole ensuing process. If this is incorrect, or varies too much, then the other functions of the production will be compromised.
FOOD PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY & PROJECT ENGINEERING
Limas bulk hoppers ensure very even flow of the material from the hopper by using a steeply inclined, variable speed elevator. The incline meters the product irrespective of the amount in the hopper, unlike the flow from a flat outfeed belt which varies with product depth, and the variable speed allows the operator to set the correct line speed for the downstream equipment.

Supply to the bulk hoppers can either be from a trailer, or a tipper can be provided for emptying boxes.
