Feeder bins are 20-25 tons each, fabricated from AR steel. Each bin top and mid-section is reinforced for added rigidity. Bin bottom is designed with tapered opening to minimize bridging. Adjustable rubber sidings are provided to prevent leakage between bin bottom and belt surface. Adjustable clam shell gate allows metering of material from the bins.
Each feeder belt has multiple ply rated belting. Rollers are 4"-5" diameter CEMA B/C. Feeder belts are to be driven by TEFC DC motors, with shaft mounted reducers. The head shaft pulley is self centering, herring bone lagged. The tail shaft wing pulley is self centering. Includes heavy duty head shaft and tail shaft bearings.
The collecting conveyor has multiple ply rated belting, supported on 20-35 deg. CEMA B/C troughing rollers. Includes 10-20' conveyor extension beyond bins. Head pulley is self centering, with heavy duty bearings. Tail pulley is wing type self-cleaning. Belt is driven by a 1800 RPM 3/60/220/440 TEFC motor with shaft mounted reducer.
Bins and conveyors are supported on a heavy duty wide flange frame and braced for optimum rigidity.
The entire feeder bins and bedframe structure is supported on 5" diameter axles with 12 ply tires, air breaks, king pin, rear lighting and mud flaps.
