Handling equipment - Box filler | GBF XXL
Designed to fill large boxes with a volume of up to 5 t with high capacity, particularly gentle to the crop due to filling over the entire width.
The GRIMME box filler, GBF XXL, is a fully automatic box filling device, providing a gentle and uniform filling of large boxes with a size of 3.5 to 5.0 tons. The adjustable intake height and the box positioning frame are suitable for filling a wide range of different sized boxes. The automatically, hydraulically adjustable gooseneck reduces the discharge height into the box for a gentle crop handling during the whole process of box filling. The machine is operated via the GBT operating terminal and is also equipped with Flow Control for switching the upstream conveyors on and off.
Constant discharge height for gentle box filling
Belt with flights and adjustable break systems at both ends reduce crop rotation
Full width filling of the big boxes.
Minimal rolling of the crop
The special shape of the conveyor flights and additional, adjustable devices for braking the crop flow minimise rolling movements and thus improve a gentle filling process.
3.5 to 5 tonnes
The GBF XXL is a fully automatic box filler for boxes with a capacity of 3.5 to 5 t. It can be used both during storage and during potato processing / grading.
The storage line evolves into an assembled unit
Flow Control connects all machines that belong to one storing line to each other. The entire line can be stopped by each machine without delay or automatically stops itself in case of trouble. The entire storage line can be started at the push of a button in a programmed start-up sequence from any terminal. In order to avoid blockages, the machines start from the final discharge point of the storage line back to the receiving hopper with a programmable time offset. The minimal manual control effort allows the entire line to be operated by a single person, thus reducing the need for additional manpower. In conjunction with the automatic speed control of the hopper floor, called Capacity Control, a uniform crop flow in the entire storing line can be ensured under all conditions.
Particularly wide transfer
The Receiving hopper, type RH 24-XT, was especially developed for sorting and for processors. The combination with a GRIMME box filler, type GBF XXL, creates a wide handling line with perfectly harmonised conveying width. In this way maximum throughput can be achieved with an optimised, gentle crop flow.
The individually configurable operator terminal VC 50 allows each user to adapt his own user-interface in that way, that he is able to make settings as quickly and conveniently as possible.
Optimum crop flow
The infinitely adjustable belt speed enables an optimum crop flow.
With a forklift, the boxes can be easily placed in the frame for the box position.
- High crop protection due to a permanent minimum discharge height across the entire width throughout the complete filling process.
- Optimum crop flow due to infinitely variable belt speed.
- The special shape of the conveyor flights and additional, adjustable devices for braking the crop flow minimise rolling movements and thus improve a gentle filling process.
- Simple positioning of the boxes in a box position frame.
- Comfortable operation via operator terminal, type VC 50.
