The plate feeder is also known as the apron feeder, plate feeding
machine, and chain plate type feeder. It is mainly used for
transfering materials to the crusher, conveyor and other mechanical
machines. The plate feeding machine is especially suitable for
conveying materials with large specific gravity, large size, high
wear resistance. It can be installed horizontally or
According to the processing capacity, plate feeder can be divided
into heavy plate feeder, medium plate feeder and light plate
feeder. With a 1250mm-3150mm conveying plate,
the heavy plate feeding machine can convey materials with larger
sizes; light and medium plate feeding machine can convey materials
with weight not more than 140kg and bulk density less than 1200kg.
The conveying plate is generally 500mm-1250mm wide. The production
rate is controlled by the motor speed.
