The supply hopper is located above the bagging scale is about 14’ above the floor. Often a supply conveyor, sometimes called feed conveyor, is needed to get the processed product up and in to the supply hopper.

Feed conveyors can be supplied from a variety of upstream process equipment (i.e. mixers, blenders, dryers) or bulk bags (FIBC). Most supply conveyors require a consistent, controlled infeed so that the product doesn’t overflow or backup.  

There are 4 types of supply conveyors: auger (screw), bucket, cleated belt and pneumatic. Which type of supply conveyor is used is dependent on the characteristics of the product, available floor space and funding.
