Wyma’s Evenflow Hopper is a combination conveyor and hopper. It evenly supplies produce to the next piece of equipment in your line (in a continuous process). It converts an irregular infeed supply to a constant outfeed flow. It can also provide buffer storage.
The Evenflow Hopper starts in a raised position with the infeed end of the conveyor bed as high as it can go. When a sensor detects produce on the conveyor, the end of the conveyor lowers, creating a produce storage area. As produce backlog clears, the end of the conveyor lifts back up.
This sensor-controlled system can be set up so produce is only fed to the next piece of equipment as it is needed (on-demand).
There are two motors; one driving the conveyor and one driving the up-and-down movement.
