SMART-4: Spiroflow Material Automatic Refilling Technology


Introducing the new Spiroflow Material Automatic Refilling Technology from Spiroflow Systems, developed initially to handle adhesive pellets and automatically replenish hot melt tanks, but with applications for many other materials and industries. The portable SMART-4  and SMART-Bulk systems automatically deliver materials on demand to multiple locations.

The portable SMART-4 allows the mobile hopper to feed materials via vacuum lances to automatically refill receiver vessels up to 20m. (60 ft.) away.

Looking to supply more than four locations? The SMART-Bulk system is capable of feeding materials to more than eight locations at distances of over 60m (200 ft), directly from a single bulk bag discharger.


  1. A level probe continually senses the material level in each receiver vessel
  2. The control system receives a low-level signal from each vessel when it requires more material
  3. A predetermined amount of material is quickly conveyed via venturi transfer lines to maintain optimal levels and temperatures of material in each location
  4. An audible and visible alarm quickly alerts the operator of low material level in the SMART-4 or SMART-Bulk unit when it needs to be refilled

Do you need to supply more than four locations?

Spiroflow also offers SMART-Bulk systems capable of feeding materials to more than eight receiver vessels at distances of over 60m (200 ft), directly from a single bulk bag discharger.

SMART-Bulk Details:

  • Material is delivered in 500 kg bulk bags
  • Bulk bag is suspended on a purpose-built frame and dosed via a flow control valve
  • Conveying system is connected directly under the standard Easyflow bulk bag discharger
  • Material is fed directly into receiver vessels
  • System can feed up to 8 locations (depending on distance and total adhesive consumption)
  • Max feeding distance is up to 60 m (200 feet)
