The device is used in fruit and vegetable processing lines as a buffer storage. It is used for even feeding of the processed raw material.
The product is fed to the hopper by means of a tippler or manually. The hopper is equipped with a grate to break any larger lumps and filter unwanted foreign bodies.
A vibratory feeder is built into the bottom, and feeds an even layer of the raw material to the rest of the production line. The thickness of the layer can be adjusted with a special valve, depending on the customer’s needs.
The device can be equipped with a sensor mounted on the hopper that measures the amount of buffered raw material. This allows for automatic control of the feeder, depending on the efficiency of the production line.
