The Dough Hopper is used in automatic dough handling systems for feeding and portioning the complete batch of dough up to 1000 litres into the divider below. The dough is being fed from the mixer to the dough hopper by means of an elevator. The level of the dough in the divider hopper is being controlled by a photocell. When the minimum level has been reached, the pneumatic slide on the bottom of the hopper is being opened to feed the requested quantity of dough to the divider hopper. Both the pressure and the amount of dough in the dough hopper of the divider remain at a constant level, which assures an accurate weight consistency of the individual dough piece.
