R.T. Kuntz Co. Inc., a systems engineering company and distributor of auxiliary equipment from Maguire Products Inc., has developed customized blender packages with extra-large hoppers that Kuntz builds in Farmingdale, N.J.
The custom blenders are for processors running up to 5,000 pounds or more. Bin capacities range as high as 1,000 pounds or more.
Using a standard hopper runs the risk that bins will run out of material before the loading system returns to that station. But the customization involves more than just “upsizing” hoppers, said President Rod Kuntz. “We have developed a total system for large-scale material handling, with special attention to clean-outs and color changes,” he said.
Besides the Maguire blender, the custom hopper and a vaccum loading system manufactured by Kuntz, a typical package includes ladders and platforms at opposing corners to allow access to vacuum receivers and bins, a high-capacity collection bin under the blender for dedicated or central feeding and quick-coupling ports for drainage from each bin.
The entire package comes with the same five-year warranty that Maguire provides for the blender alone.
