Apron feeders are designed for use in demanding material handling and processing applications and cover a range of mineral commodities, as well as various ore, coal and aggregates.
TAKRAF's apron feeders are designed to cater to specific requirements determined by the material, capacity and geometry. Our apron feeders are installed below dump hoppers of mobile or semi-mobile crushers and can handle conveying inclinations of up to 28 degrees.
Our feeders combine heavy-duty frames with standard chains and rugged pans to provide an extended service life. Our diverse product range covers standardized apron feeders, as well as specific heavy-duty feeders with large handling capacities exceeding 10,000 t/h. Depending on site and/or client specific requirements, we are able to preassemble machines in our workshop and ship in large pieces to site.
Apron feeders are available with either an inboard or outboard design. An outboard design implies that the chains are mounted outside of the skirt board area, hereby protecting both the chains and rollers from spillage material. An inboard design however offers its own unique advantages in boasting far shorter and lighter pans. Our apron feeders are available with frequency-controlled electromechanical drives or direct hydraulic drives; again, depending on client and site-specific requirements.
We're able to provide a wide-range of machines from standard sizes through to special heavy-duty machines with capacities of 10,000 t/h or more
