Hopper discharge unit - Discharging, feeding, conveying

The AViTEQ Hopper discharge unit are used below hoppers, silos, bunkers or bulk containers for flowable bulk materials and serves as a combined closure, discharge, transportation and metering device. It is used where high material flows are required. Short hopper discharge units are mounted directly below the bulk hopper. Hopper discharge units are an ideal solution for customers who require a solution from silo outlet to conveyor inlet. The hopper discharge unit satisfies this requirement by providing a complete unit ready to install onto your hopper/silo outlet flange. Depending on the bulk material, the discharge unit can be fitted with appropriate protective linear and sealing systems.
