Bunker belts

The FHF HORSTMANN bunker belt type PA is a bunker and a conveyor belt. It is used as a temporary storage facility for sorted recyclable materials. Several bunker belts are usually located under sorting platforms, where the individual recyclable materials are fed manually or via conveyor belts.

The volume (length, width, height) and the conveying capacity are designed according to the requirements and space available. An electrically driven, hinged and lockable bunker door is mounted at the delivery end. This makes it possible to drive the recyclable materials to the gate using cyclical operation in order to match the material volume as closely as possible to the bunker volume.

The very stable, torsion-resistant frame is made of folded sheet metal with welded cross profiles. The bunker belt is designed as a sliding belt conveyor. Optionally, it can also be equipped with rollers to achieve higher loads.
