A Toploader is an automatically discharging method, that works like a giant shovel.

After the transport screw drops the dry material in the storage, the toploader shuffles it on a heap. And it shuffles material into the transport screw to the pelletising plant for pelletising the dry material.

The benefit of a toploader is that the dry material remains easily accessible while in storage. This makes it easy to for example, mix or remove material, unlike other discharge mechanism like a moving floor. Furthermore, it is inexpensive and simple.
