Blending Beds for Bulk Materials
Longitudinal or circular stockpiles are used to mix or homogenise raw materials such as coal. A distinction is made between longitudinal and circular stockpiles - both have a reserve or interim storage function.
The shape of the stockpile depends on the space available and the volume of the material to be stored. A rotary spreader is used to fill the stockpile, and material is taken from the pile using a scraper chain with buckets.
Based on the specific task (buffering, collecting and distributing, blending/homogenising) and the resulting incoming and outgoing material flow, first the storage capacity is decided upon. Together with the material properties this then leads to a choice of available stacking and reclaiming methods as well as the two basic stockpile layouts, namely the longitudinal stockpile arrangement and the circular stockpile arrangement.
Competent engineering, fast and reliable on-site service as well as optimal spare parts supply round out our offering and ensure high reliability of the systems.
