Hopper loaders that automatically fill your hopper
Movacolor offers different types of hopper loaders in various sizes to automatically feed your hopper with main material. The hopper loaders are made from high quality material and have an optimal flow. The product range consist of Compressed air hopper loaders (ME and MV), automatic 1-phase and automatic 3-phase hopper loaders.
Hopper loaders with compressed air for masterbatch, regrind and free-flowing powders
The compressed air hopper loaders of Movacolor work in a similar way to standard hopper loaders, although the material is moved using compressed air. Compressed air hopper loaders are used on low throughput processing machines and can be used to convey many materials for any kind of gravimetric dosing or volumetric dosing application.
The engineers of Movacolor have designed two types of compressed air hopper loaders: the Movacolor Ejector (ME) hopper loader and Movacolor Vacuum (MV) hopper loader. Both types of compressed air hopper loaders are designed to convey a specific kind of material.
Movacolor Ejector (ME) compressed air hopper loaders are developed to convey materials like masterbatch and regrind. The ME hopper loader can be fitted directly on to the 6 and 12 liter material hoppers. The maximum capacity of an ME hopper loader is 40 to 125 kg/h (material depending). The ME hopper loader is equipped with a hopper lid, dust filter, solenoid valve, material hose, Asens level sensor and suction probe.
Movacolor Vacuum (MV) hopper loaders are developed to convey free-flowing powders and/or granules. The MC hopper loader is equipped with a hopper lid, vacuum chamber with filter, compressed air solenoid valve, material hose, Asens level sensor and suction probe.
Hopper loaders (1-phase) for automatic conveyance of free-flowing, granule-formed raw material
The 1-phase MFD motor hopper loader of Movacolor is designed for automatic conveying of free-flowing, granule shaped plastics raw material from bag or container, to the hopper of a processing machine or another hopper. The maximum capacity of the 1-phase MFD motor hopper loaders is 30 to 120 kg/h. The MFD motor hopper loader is equipped with a material hose and suction probe. These hopper loaders can be fitted on a support frame or main material hopper. MFD motor hopper loaders are also available with a brushless motor.
Hopper loaders (3-phase) for the conveying of free-flowing powder or granules
The 3-phase motor hopper loader of Movacolor is a vacuum hopper loader designed for the conveying of free-flowing granules or powder from a bag or bin to the intermediate hopper of the processing machine or another hopper. The maximum capacity of a 3-phase motor hopper loader is 150 to 2,000 kg/h. The 3-phase hopper loader is equipped with a material hose and suction probe. These hopper loaders can be fitted directly on a support frame or main material hopper.
