November 14, 2003
A compact alternative to traditional mechanical feeder agitation, the shear hopper reliably prevents bridge building of cohesive materials. Unit consists of a flexible hopper liner fixed to the top and bottom of a standard hopper, with a ring mounted around the middle of the flexible liner. Compact size makes the unit ideal for use in feeding applications where cohesive materials require agitation but short, specialized runs require frequent changeover. Shear Hopper.
