This is so the downstream equipment can receive material at the optimal rate for peak performance.
A Brentwood Straight Apron Feeder is a conveyor manufactured from steel plates driven by steel chains wearing on steel surfaces. They are a robust design manufactured for durability in the arduous environment of the toughest industrial applications.
The unique design of these apron feeders enables them to convey products with excessive weight, sharpness, temperature or abrasiveness. By comparison flexible belt conveyors become an unjustifiable maintenance expense or are simply incapable of doing the job.
Brentwood Apron Feeders are constructed from interconnecting steel plates through a piano hinge arrangement. They are specifically designed to convey loose or stringy material without the mechanical jams which occur in other designs. They are also designed to convey heavy products. By sharing the load between flights and minimising excessive loads on the drive chain, maintenance costs are reduced.
The Brentwood Apron Feeder is a quality product manufactured and designed in Australia. It has been developed from years of experience in the waste and recycling industry by Brentwood engineers.
These conveyors have been successfully marketed into:
Metal scrap operations
Municipal waste environments
Steel processing plants
Waste paper processing plants
