A novel three-hopper system is designed to facilitate quick material changes at the processing machine. The VersaLoad system from Novatec, Inc., Baltimore, has two vacuum receivers or self-contained vacuum loaders and a third hopper for purging agent mounted between them. The hoppers are all mounted on a rail so that they can be slid into place over the machine throat as needed. With each receiver or loader connected to a different material conveying line, the operator does not have to climb up on the machine to make hose changes, and there is no downtime for cleanout. VersaLoad systems are available for up to 1000 lb/hr.
