Photo 1-4: Crate tipping device with bin below. Tubers / root vegetables are removed via the adjustable conveyor belt. Storage bin and belt function as a dosing bin.


Other types of storage bins, custom-made according to your request, are available within our product range.


Photo 5: Hopper belt (Art.-No. 9300) with dosing function. Contents approx. 3 t tubers / root vegetables, can be supplied in various lengths.  
See also section 21.1 – crate-tipping devices.
  Photo 6: End of the hopper belt (Art.-No. 9300) with “window”.  Inclined belt (Art.-No. 3300) to feed other machines.

Photo 7: The rear feed station (Art.-no. 9320) permits lorries and other to tip raw produce into their storage bins. The floor of the bin consists of an ascending conveyor belt that can meter the produce. The raw produce can, before it gets to the production line, run via an attached “de-earther”, which separates small particles and soil are parted – as far as possible (option).     Photo 8: Even larger hopper systems – separated into several compartments – can serve as feed, storage and metering bins.


Photo 9: Small dosing bin. 
Belt with adjustable drive.

  Photo 10: Potato crates with a hinged bottom are set onto the storage bin. Potatoes reach an attached system via the connected conveyor belt in a steady and adjustable flow.    
Photo 11: Smaller dosing bin with 
adjustable discharge unit.
  Photo 12: Dosing bin (stainless steel) for hinged-bottom crates (visible in the background is a waste water separator).

Photo 16: Major dosing bin (870-3003) with a large storage bin (1,6 m³) for feeding of a DORNOW roller peeling machine.   Photo 17: Dosing bin with a low 
height of infeed.

  Photo 18: Hopper with low feed height to charge potato boxes that open up towards the front. The hopper loads an MSS machine in an adjustable and regular fashion.

  Photo 20 + 21: Rear-end receiving hopper for tubers and root vegetables with conveyor belts to convey the produce on further.
Photo 22: The potatoes roll into the storage bin through slight tipping of the box opening to the fore.   Photos 23 and 24: The potatoes will be charged regularly and adjustably through this hopper into a peeling machine. Please attend to the open construction of the belt. Quick cleaning possible.
