Apron conveyor

Apron conveyor type PB-224

The HORSTMANN apron conveyor type PB-224 is a conveyor for very heavy goods such as bulky waste, building rubble, stone remains or road rubble.

Usually this heavy conveyor is used as a feed belt to the crusher. The two revolving chain strands with collar rollers are connected via a quick-release axle, which in turn connects the heavy steel plates like a hinge. Carrier heights of up to 160mm also allow large amounts of material if the conveyor is designed as a horizontal and inclined belt in one (with kinks).
All protective coverings can be removed quickly and thus enable good accessibility for maintenance and cleaning purposes.
