Concrete Production Plant
Below is a selection of the most common applications covered by SKAKO VIBRATION within concrete production plant.
GROUND HOPPER EXTRACTION FEEDERS
Sited directly under lorry or front end loader fed ground hoppers, and discharging into bucket elevators or conveyor belts, the classic type FCU modular feeder with integral hopper bottom section is utilised. Available in standard widths of 560, 800, 1000, 1250 & 1600mm wide, covering the capacity range of 100 - 1000TPH. Driven by unbalanced motors, they can suit either fixed or variable feed rate control.
STORAGE SILO DISCHARGE FEEDERS
Utilising the unbalanced motor driven FCU classic modular feeder, with sizes and capacities as detailed above for the ground hopper extraction feeders. The design of the modular feeders allow for them to be sited directly under high storage capacity silos, as the pressure on the feeder tray is controlled and kept constant by the inlet hopper configuration.
MORTAR PLANT FEEDERS
For very accurate and fully automated discharge and dosing to mortar plant driers, the classic type FCE electro-magnetic driven feeders with infinitely variable feed rate control are utilised. Operating in a 'closed loop' control system from external reference signals, the standard units used would normally be either 400, 560, 800, 1000 or 1250 mm wide, covering the capacity range of 0 - 500TPH.
Special length FCU or CCU feeders, usually between 2 - 10M long, are used in areas where they are required to accept impact, prevent spillage or transport hot material, especially following bucket elevators or driers. Driven by unbalanced motors giving a fixed feed rate, they can be either open execution or totally enclosed and fully dust proof.
STEEL FIBRE DOSING FEEDERS
Special purpose type FRU feeders are custom designed to handle steel fibres. They cover the accurate dosing of the additive onto belt weighers, and designs allow for the even spreading of the additive in the concrete batch. Feeders mounted on load cells for the accurate weighing and proportioning of steel fibres are available.
BATCH MIX FEEDERS
The classic type FCE feeder with integral hopper bottom section are directly sited under multi compartment silos for batch mixing. With infinitely variable electro-magnetic drive, they can offer very accurate fast & dribble feed rates, with manual or fully automated control into weigh hoppers, and with immediate stop/start. Available in standard sizes between 400 & 1250mm wide.
HIGH CAPACITY 'TILTING' WEIGH HOPPER FEEDERSV
Special purpose type FCE-T feeders combine the rapid gravity discharge through a gate, with the very accurate feed rate control from an electro-magnetic driven feeder. The feeder tray is fitted with a pneumatically contolled pivoting arrangement giving discharge between 0 - 25 degrees, automatically controlled to give rapid and highly accurate batching. Available in 3 standard widths of 400, 560 & 800mm.
