Pan Conveyors

From Deep Drawn Pan Conveyor to Apron Weigh Feeder: secure transportation of hot, abrasive, moist and delicate bulk materials or those to be dosed

Automated production processes often require stockpiling or mixing of raw materials, additives or semi-finished products. Bottlenecks in feeding or discharging hoppers, storage, stockpiles or silos can adversely affect the performance of the plant.

The optimum design of the conveying and storage technology is the key, and AUMUND offers the appropriate Pan Conveyor for the application, adapted to the properties of the material to be conveyed:

The main application for an AUMUND Arched Plate Conveyor type BPB is hopper discharge of moist and cohesive bulk materials such as loam, marl, natural or FGD gypsum, anhydrite, pozzolana and others. Arched Plate Conveyors in heavy-duty design type BPB-S or BPB-SF are used in particular where coarse raw materials are taken up directly from the quarry and fed into a crusher.

AUMUND Arched Plate Conveyor type BPB

Arched plates fit perfectly with the drive rings and pre-tensioned sprockets to allow cleaning of the plates with a scraper.

Functions and characteristics

  • Discharge capacity regulated with variable speed drive unit
  • Version with weighing rail available (type DPB-B)
  • Plate thicknesses from 6 to 10mm

Depending on the material and the respective application, dosed feeding or discharge can be carried out by AUMUND Apron Weigh Feeders type DPB, either in the version with deep-drawn pans, type DPB-K, or in the version with arched plates, type DPB-B. The required gravimetric dosing at the desired degree of accuracy is achieved by an integrated measuring or weighing rail, the data from which drives the frequency converter, which in turn regulates the conveying speed and consequently the amount of material.

Functions and characteristics type DPB

  • Volume controlled transportation of dusty or granular bulk materials such as clinker, granulated slag, petcoke or others
  • Often used for cement mill feed
  • Available in completely enclosed and pressurised design

Functions and characteristics type DPB-B

  • Dosed extraction of bulk materials which do not flow easily, such as clay, gypsum, marl, limestone, pozzolana or others
  • The bent plates are easy to clean with a scraper
