Tote Dumper Add Back System
CMP has several styles of product add back systems available depending on the product type and size. A typical system would include a tote dumper, hopper with live load bottom belt conveyor and a delivery conveyor or incline conveyor to packaging. The tote dumper solution can be single stage or two-stage/captive style to reduce FM carry over during the product dump cycle. Product accumulates in a product hopper that has a belt conveyor forming the bottom of the hopper. The bottom belt conveyor is typically wired to a VFD allowing for precise control of the discharge rate of the product. Add back systems are routinely used in packaging lines to allow for an effective off load and re load of product should production line rates and equipment downtime require a storage buffer.
