Apron feeders

Multifunctional feeders for normal and extreme conditions

Apron feeders are a reliable solution for extracting or feeding heavy ores in wet, sticky, frozen, or other difficult conditions. Not only do they control the feed of mined materials, but they can also be used as buffers to downstream equipment to control the material surge.

Low maintenance needs

Pressure lubricated chain with lifetime seals. Easily replaceable track.

Increased safety

Easy to operate. Less required maintenance reduces risks.

High reliability

Robust design that withstand heavy shock loads.

Versatile applications

Horizontal or on an incline. Widely utilized with for example crushers, dump stations, hoppers, silos, and stockpiles.

Apron feeders for reliable buffering to downstream equipment

Low maintenance needs

Metso apron feeders require nearly no maintenance at all thanks to a pressure lubricated chain with lifetime lubricated seals, easily replaceable track and anti-friction shaft bearings. Combined with readily available spare parts, these feeders offer years of reliable service.

Increased safety

Metso feeders are equipped with a full set of guards, a zero-speed switch, a pull chord switch as well as variable speed mechanical and hydraulic drives for maximum safety and usability.

High reliability

Higher load carrying capacity is possible due to a spline connection. This ensures optimal reliability even with heavier loads. The feeders also feature a 30 degree split bearing housing with tactonite seals and a crawler type chain with hardened links, pins and bushings.

The incredibly robust design can easily withstand heavy shock loads. It features a rugged welded frame for rigid support for any loading operations.

Versatile applications

Apron feeders can be used in a variety of applications to fit the needs of your operation.

Their primary function is to control the feed of run of mine materials to primary crushers or dump stations.

Apron feeders are also utilized under crushers, hoppers and bins to act as a buffer to downstream equipment and control material surge, or under silos and stockpiles to reclaim materials from storage.
