FEED HOPPERS AND BINS BY LOIBL
Depending on the conveyed material, different conveying solutions are applied functioning as discharge units. Belt conveyors, chain conveyors or apron conveyors are frequently used. The chosen discharge unit is operated on the frequency converter and taking into account all necessary accident prevention regulations. Intermittent or continuous filling is possible. Normally, the discharge is made continuously. For dosed discharging, downstream dosing units are used additionally.
Depending on the composition of the material to be processed our hoppers are made of mild or stainless steel. An additional lining with plastic material or special sheets to reduce the wear on the inner surfaces is possible.
Hopper cars by Loibl are perfectly suitable to transport dry bulk materials from the hopper to the destination. This enclosed construction is a trough chain conveyor in special design. It is specifically designed for use in explosive atmospheres and equipped with an extinguishing device. Hopper cars are suited, for example, for a safe transport of wood pellets from the port handling to the firing plant.
