This hybrid feeder saves space and investment costs

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The Crossover feeder (photo) is a hybrid feeding solution suitable for a wide range of greenfield and brownfield applications. Thanks to its innovative modular belt-over-apron design, the Crossover feeder is said to deliver unmatched levels of availability and reliability for bulk material transportation at lower overall costs. The Crossover feeder design features a reduced height of up to 50% as compared to conventional feeding technology. This lower height requirement provides an opportunity for capital investment savings by decreasing the excavation and civil works required. For retrofit applications, the reduced height profile allows the Crossover feeder economically replace existing feeders, including apron or belt feeders, by lowering modification costs. — Metso Outotec Corp., Helsinki, Finland
