This solid-fuels feeder is now even more shock resistant

| By Chemical Engineering

The Multidos HPG (high pressure gravimetric) weighfeeder is the new generation of weighfeeders and coal conveyors that are resistant to 3.5 bar shock pressure. The units tension roll and active belt-steering system maintains belt alignment, even in the event of uneven distribution of load. This removes the need for a V-guide and extends the belts service life. An internal belt scraper has also been incorporated to extend the life of the drive components. The inlet (610-, 914- or 1,000-mm wide) ensures an even flow from the coal bunker, even with coal grades having awkward material flow properties. — Schenck Process GmbH, Darmstadt, Germany
