“Conveyor Fly” – Conveyor Mounted
Hopper Gate Opener
Approximate Lead Time: 4 – 6 weeks
Our “Conveyor Fly” conveyor mounted hopper gate opener gets its power from the 12-volt system on the conveyor…it does not tap into the conveyor’s hydraulics. This keeps the integrity of the manufacturer’s equipment intact should there be failure. In a nutshell, this is a DC unit running on 12 volts from the battery on the engine.
We use a hydraulic pump and 12 volt DC motor coupled with the our hydraulic motor and set to the same specifications as all our units. The controls are next to the hydraulic controls on the unit; the operator is not jumping around to start and stop the belt or regulate the flow by closing or opening the door.
Application: The already proven, smooth hydraulic opener rides from side to side on a 4” beam. This allows it to be used on either side of the conveyor, on moving capstans, and on any width gate while still aligning the product drop point to the conveyor. The controls allow for opening and closing of the gate from either side of the conveyor.
