Bulk Filler Handling Systems Print

Automated, precise bulk material handling of powders, granules and aggregates.

Application: Bulk filler handling systems can be integrated with either an Autocaster automatic casting machine or a Batchmaster batching and metering system to reduce the labor associated with filling the metering hoppers. Depending upon the manufacturer’s requirements, the systems can accommodate with either bulk bags (super sacks) or individual bags of filler - including lightweight fillers. The systems typically include a ground hopper for storing and conveying the filler to the metering hoppers and handling systems for supporting and moving the bulk bags when these are being used. Bulk filler handling systems can be integrated with your process or batching system to reduce labor, improve efficiencies, aid in material cost control, and potentially lower overhead costs.
