Does your feeder speed need adjusting?

You need to answer these 6 questions

1.​​

Can the rest of the crushing circuit handle the amount of material you are loading?

2.

Will it cause spillage or overload downstream?

3.

The type of feed material (ROM) that is being loaded into the feeder hopper.

4.

Is there a lot of fines? Is there no fines?

5.

Is the material wet?

6.

Is there a high percentage off clay?

| If the answer to these is yes to any of the above

The feeder speed will need to be adjusted accordingly or you will overload the rest of the circuit. If you are unsure of what these settings need to be contact our technical and they can help you work them out. 

| 4 Tips To Increase Production & Reduce Wear

Review The Below For Higher Production & Less Wear

| Every Operator Loads Differently 

The loader or excavator operators will all differ in how fast they feed the machine and will keep different amounts of material in the hopper. This will affect the speed that the material moves in the feeder.

| Jammed Rocks Will Effect Your Flow

One or two rocks jammed in the grizzly/bofor bars will cause the material flow to slow dramatically and build-up in the fines chute will also cause serious damage if not cleared regularly.

| Watch Your Feed

The plant will always be more productive with an even constant feed of material. It is critical that the material is loaded to the back of the hopper to give the grizzly the best chance of removing the fines, resulting in higher production and less wear.

| Check You Moisture Content 

The higher the moisture content of the feed material, the slower the material moves and will cause build-up and further slow production. Adjustments will need to be made during the shift if the material changes from dry to damp/wet. This must be monitored.
