Apron feeders are mainly used for handling dense and heterogeneous bulk.
Able to withstand impacts from heavy blocks falling from great heights, and to handle variations in grain size, they are installed:
- Under an open hopper, when they are used as feeders
- Under a closed hopper or a primary crushing station when they are used for extracting the product
Generally speaking, this equipment is notable for its ruggedness and high level of reliability, requiring very little maintenance.
