What does an Apron Feeder do?

Apron feeders are industrial machines that are used primarily to serve the purpose of material handling for materials that are of dry, frozen, sticky, or wet nature. These feeders are used for conveying heavy substances which usually involve coal, sugarcane, lime sand, and other kinds of materials. On dissecting an apron feeder, one can find that they consist of head-shaft, pans, tail-shaft, flights, and motors. The head and the tail shaft are covered by the metal chain wraps. Motors power the feeder providing large torque for its movement. Pans are used for extraction and for discharging the material from the feeder. The rollers are ridden using a combination of chain and flight. The apron feeder is installed under the end of the hopper. All these parts together make the apron feeder function.

Industries choose to use apron feeders for different reasons such as:

  • Rendering control to the feed for avoiding choking of the substances/materials
  • They also act as shock absorbers for heavy materials.
  • They can be used to separate different sizes and varieties of wet and dry materials making them highly versatile machines.
  • Extract and feed materials at a controlled speed
  • For high impact loading operations that require a sturdy handling machine
  • For materials that are of complex nature such as abrasive materials like ore or rock
