Dosing hoppers

Hoppers for primary products managed with special software.

The hopper receives the product in powder (flour, sugar, salt, etc.) conveyed pneumatically from the storage silo to the point of use.

It can be managed by means of an operator panel for medium-large plants, or by means of control units for medium-small plants.

The shapes, dimensions and accessories vary depending on the type of use.
