Discover the unparalleled performance and reliability of Apron Feeders, a key component in mining and industrial applications. These heavy-duty systems, designed with high-strength and productivity in mind, are transforming the way materials are handled under the most challenging conditions. MCI’s Apron Feeders, embodying years of expertise and cutting-edge design, are at the forefront of this evolution, offering flexibility, safety, and robustness. With the capability to design feeders up to 16,000 t/h feeding capacity, they set a new standard in handling large volumes efficiently.

Advanced Design for Maximum Efficiency and Safety

Innovative Design for Flexibility and Digital Integration: MCI’s Apron Feeders are distinguished by their automated and flexible design. This allows for quick adaptations to late design changes and seamless integration into digital plant control systems for enhanced condition monitoring and control.

Enhanced Safety and Reliability Features: With integrated guarding, an adjustable feed rate, and emergency stop systems, these feeders are designed for the operator’s safety. Key design elements like the forged main shaft with integrated hubs ensure long-lasting performance, protecting the drive chains from misalignment and reducing maintenance needs.

Customized for Varied Mining Applications: Ideal for different mineral processing applications, these feeders are adept at handling a range of sizes and densities of materials – from dry and abrasive to wet and sticky. This makes them perfect for both surface and underground mining operations.

High-Impact, High-Volume Material Handling

Controlled and Regulated Feeding: MCI’s Apron Feeders are engineered to handle high-impact feeds of heavy, coarse, and sharp materials efficiently. They provide a controlled flow to the next processing stage, ensuring predictable maintenance of equipment.

Versatile Installation and Application: These feeders can be installed horizontally or at an incline, offering flexibility in material handling setups. They are optimal for receiving mined material before or after primary crushing.

State-of-the-Art Components for Optimal Performance

High-Quality Materials and Components: MCI’s Apron Feeders are built with the finest components, including cast manganese steel aprons, SALT chain components, and forged alloy steel main shafts. This combination ensures high availability and reliable operation.

Specifications Tailored to Operational Needs: With a range of sizes and capacities, these feeders are designed to meet diverse operational demands. They come in various chain pitches, sprocket PSDs, flight widths, and thicknesses, accommodating different throughput requirements.

Enhanced Operational Benefits

Operational Safety and Equipment Protection: Features like onboard electrical safety and operational sensors increase safety and protect the equipment. The auto-lube system on the main shaft roller bearings aids in maintenance and prolongs bearing life.

High-Torque Hydraulic Drive with Variable Speed: This feature offers consistent full starting torque, effectively handling starts, stops, and heavy shock loads typical in feeder operations. An electro-mechanical drive option provides a cost-effective alternative.

Conclusion: Driving Efficiency and Profitability in Material Handling

MCI’s Apron Feeders are not just crucial for efficient material handling; they are investments in the productivity and profitability of mining and industrial operations. Their advanced design, safety features, and robust performance make them indispensable in modern material handling processes.
