 Bulk Handling
    The Hopper Feeder feeds sand & gravel directly in-line onto a 600mm wide x 32m long modular stringer type troughed belt conveyor, which feeds onto a 600mm wide x 7m long conveyor and then onto the third conveyor, 600mm wide x 80m long, all running parallel to the sea wharf.
The 80m long conveyor included a loop take up and grading section fitted behind the head section.
All the three modular conveyors were designed throughout to use common parts, thereby reducing the need to keep high stock levels of spares.
Common parts included head chutes lined with anti-static material, Rulmeca 7.5KW & 11KW drives, Canning 3-roll impact and standard toughing sets and parallel returns with polymer strong, lightweight rollers. Each included a standard tail feed boot and tail drums fitted with rotation sensors & v- plough units to tail sections as standard. A single pull wire system running down both sides full length of each modular conveyor as part of the emergency stop system and Cannoflex EP315 conveyor belts were included.
Canning Conveyor delivered, installed, and fully commissioned the plant during January 2021 which is now fully operational to the achieved capacity and client’s requirements. Mar-Apr 21 - Issue 67
