Apron Feeder

Custom designed for any application


APRON FEEDER

MEKA Apron Feeders are of rugged, heavy duty construction and designed to handle large lumps and where no fines removal is required or where fines are removed by a separate Scalper. When the feed material is wet, sticky or clay like, the Apron Feeder is the machine to select. Generally, the Apron Feeder can be installed in a horizontal or inclined position. The high inclination also allows to build compact installations and to reduce the length of the Apron Feeder keeping the investment costs low.

As an optional extra, MEKA Apron Feeders can incorporate a
Dribble Conveyor which is located under the feeder to catch
the small pieces, fines and lumps of material that became
trapped on the feed side of the apron pans and dribble
out on the return side.

This feature eliminates manual clean up and saves on man hours.

Apron Feeder

An Apron Feeder is run at very low speeds and at a controlled
feed rate as it absorbs the impact loads of the material
falling from a dump truck or a front-end loader and is ideal
for withdrawing material from under a stockpile or
from under a Primary Crusher.

Apron Feeders are of rugged,
heavy duty construction and designed to handle large
feed sizes and where no fines removal is required or where
fines are removed by a separate Grizzly Scalper.

Apron Feeder

MEKA’s heavy duty and robust apron feeders are engineered and

built with an intense commitment to quality and attention to detail,

providing maximum uptime and many years of service life.

Because of their durable, longlife components,

our apron feeders are low maintenance even under severe conditions.

FRAME

Rugged welded construction frame to provide rigid support for intense loading conditions. Full length beams manufactured from rolled steel joists form the top and bottom members of this one piece unit. Crossmembers tie the framework together for maximum strength. Bolted onto these crossmembers are the universal beams which carry the impact rails and the carrier rolls. For ease of removing the carrier rolls, the outside carrier roll channels are sectionalized and bolted to the cross beams.

CHAIN

Crawler tractor type track chains , sealed and lifetime lubricated , are used on all MEKA Apron Feeders . The pins and bushes are all made from heat treated alloy steel and hardened on the wearing surfaces. The chain links are drop forged for increased carrying capacity and strength. The chains can be adjusted by means of a threaded screwed take-up arrangement. Hydraulic ram adjustment is available as an option.

INSTALLATION

MEKA Apron Feeders are installed in horizontal as well as in inclined applications. Due to the special design of the aprons an inclination range up to 15° can be realized. In addition the bed height of the conveyed material stays constant ensuring an equal material flow to the further process. The high inclination also allows to built compact installations and to reduce the length of the Apron Feeder keeping the investment costs low. ease of removing the carrier rolls, the outside carrier roll channels are sectionalized and bolted to the cross beams.

CARRYING ROLLERS

The carrying rollers are standard tractor type featuring a hardened and ground shaft fitted with a centre thrust shoulder and hardened roller. The sleeve bearings on the carrying roller takes high impact loads and, with the duo-clone seals providing lifetime lubrication an extended wear life can be assured. Closely spaced along the length of the Feeder, smooth travel of deck during operation is maintained.

HEAD DRIVE SHAFT

The sprockets are of the bolt on segmental type made from wear resisting alloy steel. They are designed with an odd number of teeth which increases the life of the sprocket because contact with the teeth is only completed after two revolu¬tions. The sprockets are bolted onto keyed on hubs.

BEARINGS

Anti-friction spherical roller bearings are fitted to the head and tail shafts and housed in heavy duty plummer blocks.Bearings are grease lubricated and a grease reservoir is included in the design of the bearing housings and end caps. The Apron Feeder has a remote mounted electrically operated automatic greasing system as standard.

TAIL TRACTION WHEELS

Cast steel traction wheels are lighter duty as they act purely as a directional guide to centralise the track. Long service life can be expected as there is minimal load carried on the traction wheels. as a directional guide to centralise the track.
