The Live Bottom hopper utilizes a screw conveyor in the bottom of a hopper to move difficult or sticky product to the next phase of the process. Hoppers with live bottom feeders are designed to provide a positive outcome of a wide material range or storage in a process. Screw conveyors are placed at the bottom of a 4-wall hopper, they work in a tandem way in order to uniformly dredge the product at a desired speed. Equipment designed to eliminate clogging and other problems related to material flow, live bottom screw feeders work filled, varying the screw design to assure a “first flow first”, extracting the material from the inlet length. Modifications can include screw diameter changes, pitch, pipe diameter and trough shape. Live bottom hoppers are extremely used as batching, portable containers and weighing containers, controlling bulk materials flow of container or hopper.
