Hopper Loader: Introduction
- Hopper loaders are machines used to transfer any kind of material or plastic resins such as plastic regrind, plastic powders, and plastic pellets. Hopper loader comprises an integral motor that generates vacuum to deliver plastic resin material from a bulk container to a blender bin or a drying hopper.
- The hopper loader machine provides automatic loading without human intervention for regrind & virgin material. The material loading is accomplished by pickup wand, which is made from aluminum or stainless-steel tube. Hopper loaders are of two types: single-phase hopper loader and three-phase hopper loader. Hopper loader includes either a brush type or brushless type motor.
- Hopper loaders are used in various applications across various end-user segments such as granules conveying, food product conveying, powder conveying and small chip conveying
- The global hopper loader market is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, due to an increase in the demand for hopper loaders from end-users
