|Bulk Bag Suspender Frame|
The optional Bulk Bag Suspender Frame allows the option of mounting larger, more economical bulk bags (“Super Sacks”) above Gruber’s Ground Hopper™ bulk solids conveyors. Mounting large bulk bags reduce interruptions during the manufacturing process, and reduces labor costs normally associated with manual loading of a metering or feed hopper – particularly when compared to manual loading of smaller bulk material bags. Automation of the bulk material handling system also results in a cleaner, safer working environment and more efficient manufacturing workflow.
A number of other accessories are offered to further automate delivery and positioning of bulk solids – including powdered, granular or other bulk ingredients – such as calcium carbonate and other “difficult” materials. A forklift is generally used to load super sacks into position*, but we also offer other material loading and positioning options, including Bulk Bag Gantries and Roller Conveyors to provide a number of possible material loading configurations.
* Note: Requires fork lift access to lift super sacks into position.

Note: There is another way of lifting and positioning a bulk bag above a Ground Hopper. See details on the Bulk Bag Gantry, including its Bulk Bag Suspender
