Metering Hopper

Control Line Flow Rates with Smooth Product Transfer and Accurate Metering

The Metering Hopper is an ideal in-process storage solution, controlling processing line flow through its accurate, constant metering. Product is received from a crate dumper or conveyor in any direction, gently stored then accurately metered to the processing line via an auger, flat belt or rodded belt discharge. The Metering Hopper is designed to promote smooth transfer through the entire process, minimizing product damage. It can be tailored to your operation with its wide flow rate range, intake and discharge options and multiple available hopper capacities.

  • Flow rate from 3,000-30,000 pounds per hour (lower rates available)
  • Receives product from a crate dumper or conveyor, stores it in-line then discharges it at your specific flow rate to the processing line
  • Minimize product damage with unique support baffle within the hopper
  • Sanitary design minimizes debris build up and allows for quick and thorough cleaning
