Do You Know The Different Rock Feeders?

Rock feeders are an integral part of the industrial setting that ensure material makes it way through the process. As a key element that facilitates a load of material transportation around any site, these are used in a number of industrial and mine focused settings. Read on to find out more about these dynamic parts of the industrial setting.

Apron Models

Apron models are durable options that are used for managing many types of materials across sites. Their standard loads include aggregates, minerals and recycled materials and are put to use in a number of ways across the world. These machines are most commonly used for both a full range of capacities, as well as being able to withstand extreme impact loading.

Belt Models

Belt models are generally used for fine material applications, typically for handling material 6” or less. They feature a flat belt that is supported by closely spaced idlers and driven at the head pulley. These often maintain a more delicate flow that will not disrupt the lighter material load.

Drag & Reclaim Models

Both drag models and reclaim models consist of chain segments  that connect to flight bars, which are designed to pull material along a space. They are typically tied into the operation of a downstream conveyor, so they do not require an operator. Drag models are ideally made to transport free-flowing materials like coal, salt, copper and other valuable minerals.

Reciprocating/Plate Models

This range of models have a reciprocating tray type selection that features a crank, or eccentric and connecting rod, to produce the movement required to shift the material toward the end of the line. Hydraulically operated designs use a cylinder to produce this motion and allow the material to be processed.

Vibrating Pan Models

Vibrating pan models are more generally used to feed the primary crushing system with aggregate in mining and recycling applications. These models can also be used to feed grizzly models for removing material ahead of a crusher. As the system vibrates, the aggregate moves along the sections toward the end of the line.
