Bulk Storage Bunker

The Bulk Storage Bunker is a dry hopper. It receives and stores produce for automatic, controlled delivery to processing lines. Each Bunker can hold up to 50 tons of produce and can process up to 25 tons an hour. There are two types of Bunkers. A fully closed Bunker is a large storage hopper with four walls; multiple bunkers can be assembled in line to meet specific needs. And a side-receiving Bunker has an open side so produce can be unloaded from a truck or other unloading system. This has reduced capacity but still provides buffer storage.
