Discharge valve helps fill small hoppers

FED UP with trying to fill small hoppers from large bulk bags?

Then Bath-based Nordic Star might have the solution with its Raimo discharge valve – a device which taps into large bags to allow material to be emptied in a controlled manner.

Suitable, says the company, for bags containing fertiliser, feed or seed, the discharge valve can be used for a range of applications – such as filling drill/fertiliser hoppers and feed troughs.

The Raimo discharge valve comprises a non-corrosive shut off plate fitted above a flexible discharge pipe which can be angled to a particular work position. Designed to withstand pressures up to 1000kg, the valve is priced at £59 including delivery (0800-7319465).
