The new portable hopper feeder from KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens is now offered as a highway-portable rental tool designed to introduce material into a plant and eliminate surges in quarry systems.

Built with scissors action grizzly fingers designed to minimize wedging of materials, the portable hopper feeder is ideal for loader feeding material to screening, crushing and washing plants, according to Jodi Heirigs, product manager of KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens. Material feed rate can be controlled with the use of a discharge gate and/or variable frequency drive (VFD).

“Our portable hopper feeder is built with a flat grizzly instead of a standard sloped grizzly, making it highway portable and ideal for rental fleets,” Heirigs said. “Producers who seek to control their material feed rate and maintain a consistent material processing speed throughout their operation will benefit from this equipment.”

The portable hopper feeder features a 20-cu.-yd. (15.3 cu m) hopper and is available with a wireless remote to operate the hydraulic grizzly dump. An electrical control panel includes a starter for the electric/hydraulic power pack and VFD for the feeder. The hopper feeder is available in 36 or 42 in. (91 or 106 cm) belt widths and an extended 18 ft. (5.5 m) length that allows producers to feed a radial stacker.
