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.

Features

  • Large storage capacity (approximately 300 kg – 1000 kg) so that produce can be stored before it is fed to the line.
  • Produce depth sensor changes belt speed for smooth produce flow rate.
  • Continuous feed sensor* changes belt speed for smooth produce flow rate.
  • External covers restrict access to danger areas for safe operation.
  • The heavy-duty belt is robust and long lasting.
  • Slat bed for low maintenance
  • Side skirts* stop dirt getting under the belt.
  • Two geared motors separate drives for conveyor and lift action.
  • Simple, durable tensioning system means very low maintenance and easy to adjust.
  •  Variable speed conveyor allows feed rate control for soft start to reduce jolting of parts.
  • Adjustable feet for easy, level installation.
  • Automatic conversion from hopper to conveyor for flexible application.
  • Soft-drop at transition points* to ensure gentle transition to minimise produce damage.
