The apron conveyors have many functions in the field of transport of bulk materials. Very hot, heavy, sharp and abrasive materials often require the use of these machines.
The principle of operation involves the use of a double chain drive on which steel plates are bolted forming the movable surface that supports and transports the material. The flow rate, size and temperature of the conveyed material and the inclination of the conveyor determine the characteristics of the plates of a single machine. Therefore, from a constructive point of view, despite using the same principle of operation the conveyors can be substantially different from each other. Motridal produces apron conveyors for various industrial sectors including a medium-light version normally used for transporting debris or waste and conveyors and extractors for heavy duty use in the cement and steel industries.
