Metering Bunkers

Metering Bunker for Recycling System

The metering bunker can be a part of the automatic bag opening system. Bagged recyclable material is loaded over the side of the hopper onto bunker floor. The bunker floor will move material at a rate set by the PLC controls to allow accurate metering of the material.  The bagged material is guided onto the metering chain conveyor and under the bag opener.
