Weighing accuracy dramatically improved

HopperFix Weigh Hopper Breather

“HopperFix is such a simple product and yet it has made such a dramatic difference to the efficiency of my plant.  In terms of payback, it must be the best £50 I’ve ever spent” – Area Operations Supervisor

The Challenge:

A readymixed concrete plant was experiencing problems due to repeated blockage of the cement weigh hopper breather. Loss of venting was causing pressure in the system resulting in poor weighing accuracy, cement losses and slow feed rates. Replacing blocked bags causing high work load for the busy area fitter.
