Apron Feeder

The plate feeder is a type of feeding equipment that is categorized into three types: light, medium, and heavy. It is typically used at the end of a conveyor or elevator that feeds a plant, but it can also be used to feed any other single unit. This feeding equipment is widely used in mining, metallurgy, building materials, and coal industries.

    Working Principle

    A plate feeder is used to collect ore at the bottom of the outlet of the ore bin. The ore falls onto a leakage plate fixed on the bottom of the carrier roller, which is connected to the reducer through an eccentric mechanism. The leakage plate is then lined on the motor via a coupling. When the motor runs, it drives the reducer through the coupling and makes reciprocating linear motion through the eccentric disc and the leakage plate between the rollers at the frame's bottom. This results in uniform feeding.


    Small running resistance
    Multiple pallets with built-in bearings support the plate feeder chain, ensuring even stress distribution and preventing deformation.
    Easy to Maintain
    The tight coupling design makes the whole machine easier to assemble and maintain and ensures the high precision of synchronization of the double chains.
    Stable and Easy Operation
    The plate feeder adopts a variable frequency speed motor to set different speeds according to output requirements—reliable and easy operation.
    Not Easy to Damage
    The plate feeder uses a compound rubber spring for stable pull-in and reduced failure.
