Tel. 978 537 8534 Surge hopper Single or double surge hopper connects down- stream of company's KD70 series dedusters, tablet presses, or cap- sule fillers to delay products' entry into intermediate bulk con- tainer (IBC). Delay enables you to sample tablets/capsules more easily so you can con- duct quality checks. If quality falls outside specification, hop- per prevents off-spec products from entering IBC, thus lim- iting problem to fraction of total production. In two-hopper configuration, manual or automatic diverter valve guides products into appropriate IBC. At hopper outlet, 4-inch- diameter valve with silicon flap smoothly feeds tablets/cap- sules to IBC(s). Optional sensors for monitoring product level in hopper interface with company's integrated controller or with tablet press or capsule filler. You select hopper volume to suit application.
