AUTOMATIC FILLING SYSTEM FOR FEEDING STATIONS
Automatic filling system for feeding stations The automatic filling of the feeding stations, depending on the design of the structure, can occur by a spiral or disc chain feed conveyor system. In the first case each hopper of each station is equipped with a level sensor.
This is feasible even in systems with disc chain. As an alternative to the sensors, it is possible to set a timed charging of the stations. At predetermined time interval the system picks up the feed from the silo and transports it into the hoppers of the stations. When all the hoppers are full, the residue feed is discharged back into the silo.
