Intake hoppers

All Daltec hoppers are solid designs:

  • Available in electrical and mechanical versions
  • Solid stainless steel sheet metal
  • Build-in feed auger/spiral

Mechanical hoppers

Straight passage
The feed flow is controlled by the cable speed. This minimizes the risk of overfilling the feed line.

U-turn passage
in systems where the build-in U-turn can save some corners, this hopper is a good choice. The feed flow is controlled by the cable speed, so that the risk of overfilling the feed line is minimized.

Motorized hoppers

Electrical hopper with a standard motor
This hopper is the ideal choice for systems where return feed needs to pass the hopper before it starts taking new feed into the feed line.

The delayed start time reduces the risk of overfilling the feed line and therefore also the risk of overloading the system. In systems equipped with a Dual Feed controller it's also possible to clean out the feed line when using motorized hoppers.

Speed controlled electrical hopper
The speed controlled electrical hoppers let you mix feed ingredients from different silos. Speed controlled hoppers are mandatory in portion feeding systems where feed is prepared as single portions to individual feed valves.
