What is an Apron Feeder?
An apron feeder is a mechanical feed conveyor used to extract raw material typically from dump hoppers, bins and stockpiles. Apron feeders are used to extract or feed materials at a short distance with a controlled rate of speed.
Typical applications include primary hopper recovery, stockpile reclaim, crusher feed and reclaim, ship and rail-car loading and unloading stations, ore pass recovery and other installations requiring a controlled feed.
