feeder gears - apron feeder gearboxes

Extreme industrial applications demand apron feeder gearboxes that provide reliable performance 365 days a year. Gear systems that deliver a long bearing life, improved thermal performance and increased product lifecycle are essential in mining and minerals processing and David Brown Santasalos apron feeder gear systems can be relied upon even in challenging environments.

As an interface between trucks or plant stockpiles and the processing system, Apron Feeders provide steady, controlled feed for downstream processing in cement and mining applications improving production and allowing for more predictable maintenance of processing equipment.

Our long-lasting Apron Feeders are ideal for both cement and mineral processing applications to extract bulk materials from under a dump hopper or regulated feed to a crusher. Raw material is dumped directly into a reinforced feed hopper and extracted by the Apron Feeder, ensuring a steady flow of material to the next stage of the process. The reliable construction of these Apron Feeders makes them easy to operate and maintain.

Our Apron Feeders efficiently feed material of different sizes and densities from dry and abrasive to wet and sticky. Apron Feeders can also deliver volumetrically regulated feed metering to prevent material flooding.

By positioning two Apron Feeders perpendicular to each other, it is possible to feed the same crusher with two different materials at the same time. This option for the cement industry combines comminution and blending in one convenient installation.

Being exposed to material with sharp, abrasive and hard edges, such as run-of-mine material tipped directly from mining trucks, requires high-strength, heavy-duty feeders with components that can endure continuous operation. The Apron Feeder for mining uses the highest quality componentry; such as cast manganese steel aprons, sealed and lubricated (SALT) chain components and forged alloy steel main shafts.

The apron pans are designed for the harshest operational conditions. Any impact from materials is absorbed by the aprons themselves and by impact rollers or beams placed below the aprons. The impact rollers in the Apron Feeder for cement applications are designed to minimise friction and energy consumption.

Our proven Apron Feeder comes standard with a trough, discharge casing and dribble conveyor and is designed to be installed horizontally or at an incline. It can also be placed at any point in your material handling set-up, before or after a primary crusher.

The type designation of the Apron Feeder, for example AF 2800 x 12, indicates its nominal width in millimetres and length in metres. Widths range from 900 mm to 3600 mm based on various lengths. Apron Feeders designated for mining applications include reference to the type of its SALT chain components, too.

We have designed our Apron Feeders for uninterrupted service, only requiring stoppage for occasional replacement of wear parts. Worn aprons and chains can be accessed from the take-up end of the feeder for easy replacement. The sprocket wheels have bolted-on tooth segments which can be interchanged or replaced.

The impact rollers used in the cement application Apron Feeders are lifetime lubricated for easy maintenance and reduced friction and power consumption, while the chain rollers are lubricated manually with a grease gun to ensure perfect lubrication from the inside of each chain link. The chains and rollers on our mining application Apron Feeders are also lifetime lubricated, reducing your maintenance burdens.

A hydraulic take-up system exists in both Apron Feeder designs for cement and mining applications. The system maintains constant tension of the chains that support the turning of the rollers. The system compensates for the polygon effect and effectively protects the chain, bearings and other components.

The Apron Feeder for cement processing features heavy-duty roller supports throughout the full length of the feeder and a double set of rollers in the impact area, strengthening its ability to handle the enduring process.The Apron Feeder for mining showcases cast manganese steel aprons, SALT chain components andforged alloy steel main shafts. The impact loads are absorbed by a natural material bed on top of the feeder, and in combination with heavy duty impact beams in the feeding area, the Apron Feeder is designed to handle the toughest operational conditions.

State-of-the-art design choices combined with decades of know-how brings you our reliable Apron Feeder, offering high operational availability. We ensure the safety of your process operators through an integrated guarding, infinitely adjustable feed rate and emergency stop systems.

With integrated bearings and tight sealing, the design ensures high performance even in dusty environments. The concentration of rollers can be optimised to cater for the load in the particular area of the feeder. The roller support system is equipped with pre-greased roller bearings, labyrinth shaft seals and a steel dust cover on both sides. Not only does pre-greasing prolong the lifetime of the bearings but it also removes the need for an external lubrication system or additional piping.

For mining applications, the forged main shaft with integrated hubs protect the drive chains against the misalignment of friction hubs and sprockets, ensuring longer life and requiring less maintenance. We have used tractor-type sealed and lubricated (SALT) chain and roller components, cast manganese steel aprons, and forged alloy steel main shafts to withstand heaviest applications in mining industry.

Pans are mild steel. Sidebars are medium carbon steel. Pins are thru hardened alloy steel for even more wear resistance. Sidebars and pins can be furnished with additional heat treatment on request. Bushings are furnished in case hardened steel to provide maximum wear resistance and chain life. Rollers are furnished in WEBLOY and provide a grease reservoir and lubrication fittings when internal greasing is required.

Aprons are used in conveyors and feeders where the most difficult operating conditions prevail. The rollers provide lower operating friction which helps to increase chain life and reduce conveyor design requirements.
