For heavy-duty and coarse materials that cannot be handle by the normal Alvan Blanch inclined feeders, the apron feeder is built to bear heavy loads and can receive up to 60 tonnes of bulkier materials to be fed continuously the drying system at a pre-defined rate. With spinning agitators at the discharge end, the apron feeder provides a more accurate feeding rate than our inclined feeders.
