Agitator Hoppers

In-Use Advantages

NBE agitator hopper units are designed to ensure consistent, reliable flow of non free-flowing material into downstream conveyance or processing equipment. NBE agitator hoppers use a combination of design features; such as a full-length discharge trough, and continuous sweep arms, to condition material discharged from bulk bags or containers. NBE agitator hopper systems prevent bridging or ratholing above the take-away inlet and provide free material flow to downstream processes.

Features & Integration Guide

U-shaped Agitator Hopper:
NBE u-shaped hoppers provide large capacity holding, conditioning, and transfer of hard-to-handle dry, bulk material. Constructed of heavy gauge steel, with continuous, ground and sand blasted internal seam welds to eliminate material hold-up, NBE U-shaped agitator hoppers deliver industrial grade durability, capacities up to 300 cubic feet, or 7,000 pounds, and precision material conditioning and downstream transfer.

Standard "U" Shaped Hopper

Features & Options

  • Heavy 14 gauge steel construction.
  • Separate industrial/electric motor coupled with gear reducer to provide powerful, low rpm agitator shaft drive.
  • Separate industrial/electric motor for auger discharge.
  • Motors are available in single or three phase. H.P. varies depending on auger size specified.
  • Heavy duty, ball bearing assemblies for agitator shaft and shaft drive system.
  • Supports for bearing assemblies are 1/4" steel channel.
  • Drive train is completely guarded for safe operating.
  • On/off switches for both motors.
  • Solid core auger (4, 6, or 8") in 12 gauge steel trough.
  • Entire unit is sand blasted and epoxy painted (desert sand beige standard).
  • Removable inspection plate in dispensing end of discharge auger.
  • 4 different take-away systems available: auger, vacuum, blower and bucket elevator.

V-shaped Agitator Hopper:
NBE v-shaped agitator hoppers are designed to provide a steep material feed angle to induce flow of process materials that are very non free-flowing. NBE V-shaped hoppers are constructed with a 60-degree wall slope. Material is fed into the solid core auger trough that runs the entire length of the hopper. Heavy gauge hopper and framework construction easily processes batch weights up to 2,800 pounds, or 80 cubic feet.
