Apron Feeders

Apron Feeders are designed and built in a wide range of sizes to handle heavy, lumpy and abrasive materials, and provide a reliable means of controlling the feed rate to prevent surge loads to primary crushers, belt conveyors and other plant and equipment.

How it works

Apron Feeder consists of drive wheel device, tail wheel tension device,pan- chain device and transmission device. After the head sprocket is driven, the traction chain in the pan- chain device meshes with the sprocket to drive the entire pans to move along the longitudinal center-line and the roller travels along the track fixed on the frame, thereby completing work.During the operation of Apron Feeder, the high-strength bulldozer die-forged chain is used as the traction part. On each link of the two rows of chains, the overlapping grooves of the heavy structure are assembled to form a continuous conveying line capable of carrying materials. The material discharged from the tail silo is transported along the conveying line to the front of the body for continuous and uniform feeding.

According to Metso, Thyssenkrupp and Flsmidth experience, we can provide the equal quality products and parts.

Born for the worldwide mining operation, and more than 30 years of production practices, various incapacities, widths and lengths to meet customers’ demands, in addition, keep our standard in quality, endurability and dependable.
1.Using 16Mn steel plate with high strength and stiffness, to withstand great impact.
2.Standard track chain, no lubrication or deviation, for interchangeability and long service life.
3.The sprocket material is made of high strength alloy steel and quenched, which has excellent wear resistance.
4.Equipped with composite spring on the tail part, which can effectively buffer the impact load of the chain.
5. Segmented drive sprockets, easy to maintain without removing the chain plate.
6.Traction chain and load chain are separated, so the dynamic load is small to achieve exteneding life.

Avoid the blocking to the crushers and other device at a uniform conveying speed.
1.The bottom plate is provided with a scraping device, and the adhesive material and the material are less.
2.Frequency control, energy saving and easy control, convenient and adjustable material delivery, uniform delivery and feeding
3.Suitable for transporting high humidity and viscosity material.
4.Lower the maintenance cost. apron feeder advantages
why choose exct apron feeder
apron feeder pan Pans
According to different working conditions, we will choose the most suitable design to meet your requirements. Example, we use manganese pans to replace cast steel pans, with a longitudinal center rib, avoiding excessive deflections under high-impact loading and severely abrasive working conditons.


The track chain is used in our apron feeder, because the pin and bush are made of heat-treated alloy steel. To withstand greater weight, the chain link is made by drop forging, which can effectively prevent the external sands entering, thus, prolong the chain life.
