The Bollegraaf Drum Feeder was specially designed to optimize waste paper sorting systems. The Drum Feeder ensures that your sorting system, baler or shredder has a constant flow of material.
The BRS Drum Feeder consists of a drum with Hardox combs, a heavy-duty steel deck, and material carriers powered by a chain with two tension bearings mounted in the tensioning station. The bearings have a grease cartridge for a minimum of 10,000 working hours. The Drum Feeder also has ring seals and self-adjusting bearings to reduce the pollution between the side walls of the bunker belt and the drum.
By providing a buffer for material and ensuring a steady stream of material, the Drum Feeder enables higher capacity for sorting installations and better sorting quality. The Drum Feeder provides a buffer of material, which reduces the time required by the shovel operator to input material in the sorting system as it only needs to be filled a few times an hour.
The Drum Feeder can also be combined with a special version of the HBST steel belt conveyor with a 2000mm high side wall – the so-called bunker belt. For easier loading of material into the system, the Drum Feeder can also be placed in a recessed or concrete pit.
