Stainless steel JIT Hopper
Fill machine throats directly with “Just-In-Time” stainless steel hoppers. Three sizes are available. Hinged lids with hold-up arms allow easy access for cleaning and inspection without removing the receiver. A drop-in grate magnet may be included. A remote demand sensor bracket and clean out chute are provided on JIT-20 and JIT-40 models.
AR-2 model Access Receivers can be mounted directly to a machine throat with a pristine direct feed glass hopper. Three capacities are available to accommodate throughput and/or shot size needs. Quick disconnect clamps allow easy receiver removal. An optional drop-in grate magnet maybe provided. A height-adjustable demand sensor bracket is included, allowing fill level adjustments.
Gravity discharge valve
The gravity discharge valve uses a non-contact, magnetic reed switch to signal receiver demand. Stand-offs provide a heavy-duty guard to prevent discharge valve damage. The large opening eliminates material bridging.
Remote demand sensor
To trigger the operation of the receiver
(demand) from a location other than below the receiver, a remote demand sensor may be used. The remote demand sensor is useful on oversized drying hoppers to sense material through a sight glass. Extension cables are available.
A Stainless Steel deflector plate is added to the inside of the receiver’s body reducing wear from highly abrasive materials, such as glass-filled compounds.
Volume fill sensor
Shuts off the receiver’s vacuum sequence when the receiver is full. A LED will illuminate on the ELC control if the vacuum sequence has not satisfied the receiver’s demand.
