Rubber belt box feeder

S&F rubber belt box feeders are used for receiving, buffering and feeding all kinds of bulk materials, thereby ensuring consistent dosage of the material. The standard rubber belt box feeder series "ABB" is produced in belt widths of up to 2000 mm and centre distances of up to 12 m. Depending on the particular application, they offer feed box volumes of up to 20 m³.

Areas of application

S&F rubber belt box feeders (box feeders) are used, for example, in the wood processing industry (sawmills and sawmill industry, briquetting, paper and pulp industry, biomass power stations, by manufacturers of wood fuels and producers of wood chips), in the environmental technology and recycling industry (waste wood preparation plants, waste wood operations, recycling operations, RDF plants / refuse derived fuel plants) as well as in other areas.

Function description

S&F rubber belt box feeders or box feeders are used where products need to be supplied to the downstream machine continuously and consistently. The material is loaded into the feed hopper using a shovel loader, for example. An endless rubber belt circulates over a drive and tail pulley. The belt is supported on a roller table. Discharge reels are used to limit layer height and to improve metering.

Rubber belt box feeders ensure constant dosing of the input material. Downstream machines, such as a screening machine or a briquette press can thus be fed consistently. This ensures discharge onto downstream conveying systems.
