Bunker discharge conveyor

Bunker discharge conveyor

All conveyors are designed with the RUD pocket wheel system. The drive has multipart and the deflection one piece pocket wheels. Alongside the standard MEE-T attachment there is also a special design with bolts for apron conveyors or as a one-piece MEE-TK scraper with, if required, welded-on scraper edges. The width of the conveyor can range from 0.8 to 1.8 m. Conventional speeds lie between 0.1 and 0.3 m/s, or may be even faster when conveying non-abrasive materials.

1. Twin and multi-strand conveyors

for bunker discharge and unloading coal trains use chain sizes 18x64,22x86, 26x100 und 30x120, together with MEE-T attachments with optimally designed, welded-on scrapers, or MEE-TK attachments. These conveyors are capable of shifting up to 1,000 tonnes of coal per hour. The coal is conveyed in the upper strand.

Scraper MEE-T ● Can be fixed to chains without securing pins with spacings of 6 to 8 links, securing pins are required for longer link spacings
● Deflection over flat wheels, one-piece pocket wheels are recommended

Mounting and dismounting can be done with the chain loops slack but still closed.


2. RUD Apron Conveyor

Apron Conveyor in a coal handling plant, using chain sizes 22x86, 26x100 and 30x120, MEE-T special attachments, and optimally designed, sealed plates. Apron conveyor shave a capacity of between 75 and150 t/h. Apron conveyors are used for high-ash and, in particular, very wet, fine coals.

3. Twin-strand trough chain conveyor

in a coal handling plant, using chain sizes 22x86 and 26x100, and MEE-T attachments with optimally designed, welded-on scrapers. These conveyors have capacities of between 75 and 150 t/h.Twin-strand trough chain conveyors are used for conveying low abrasion, easy flowing materials.

● Where long distances between the attachments occur the MEE-T should always be secured with a locking pin
● Deflection over one-piece pocket wheels


4. Cleaning scraper chain conveyor

under the main coal handling system, using chain sizes 10x38 and 14x50, MEE-Tattachments with optimally designed, welded-on scrapers. These twin-strand conveyors have capacities between 1 and 5 t/h.
