Above Ground Bulk Intake System

February 3, 2009
The IntraBulk is a high-speed above ground bulk intake system that is designed to receive materials from trucks and feed the materials into process systems at rates up to 500 tn/hr. As an intake device, the unit operates as a wide-belt apron feeder. Typically a belt width of 9 ft is used to unload materials from road-tipping trucks or front-end loaders in lump sizes up to 6 in. and bulk densities of 156 lb/cu ft or less. This makes the system ideal for handling a broad range of materials including coal, limestone, gypsum, clinker, iron ore, sewage sludge, grain, and clay. With no risk of material bridging, the IntraBulk can be used as a buffer store as well as providing regular feed. Installing the unit above ground provides worker safety, lower cost, and a simpler means of reducing dust and odors.
