Apron Feeder is a type of conveyor made from individual apron plates that are linked together with hinges on its underside, thus creating a looped carrying surface where materials can be placed.

It plays a vital part in several industries by being used to move different materials from one location to another. Using round steel link chain as the pulling element and
driven by pocket wheels, the slats sit and swivel on specially designed attachments. Due to the chain being outboard of the loading area the slats of the apron feeder can
be fully supported at impact points and where heavily loaded. The special geometry of the slat position to the chain centres ensures a dense enclosed system that does
not open when moving over the pocket wheels. Side pieces on the individual slats in conjunction with guides on the edge prevent a sideways movement of the material
conveyed against the conveying direction.
With its superb wear resistance combined with high breaking loads and toughness, RUD chain is ideal for the most arduous tasks. It is these properties that make our
chain ideal for the demands of apron feeders. All RUD special quality chains and components offer extraordinary high fatigue strength, perfect for continuous operation.
The chain and component properties are carefully configured to ensure optimum lifetime.
