Scrap Conveyor

Total Scrap Management Solutions to Automobile Industries for handling, storage and disposal of press metal scrap.

The Scrap Conveyors are basically Hinged Steel Belt type and are designed and manufactured as per International Standards. The Standard Chain pitches are 2.5” (63.5 mm) / 4” (101.6 mm) / 6” )152.4 mm)and 9”.(229 mm) Belt widths vary in in progression of 1 ½’ i.e., from 12” to 54” maximum widths. Scrap carrying capacity usually is expressed in Tons/ hour. Since the scrap is voluminous indicating the bulk density in Tons / cubic meter
would help design an appropriate conveyor and in determining the speed more precisely. The Chain pitches and belt widths are selected based on the nature of the scrap and scrap carrying capacity.

The Shapes of the conveyors are as required by customer and to suit the application. They are available in straight lengths, straight length – Type “A”; Straight on an inclination – “Type “B” ; Horizontal straight and with an upward inclination –Type “C” and a ‘Z” shaped construction – Type “D”

Salient Features of Press Scrap Handling Conveyor System:

  • Conveyor design – material specifications, dimensions etc all conform to international standards. They are easily replaceable and interchangeable.
  • Conveyor structure is sturdy and robust and will be modular in construction made out of rolled and formed sections.
  •  Chain roller track is provided with the carbon steel “Rail Section-30 Lb” to with – stand the heavy load and to avoid wear and tear.
  • Chain parts are made out from carbon and alloy steel duly machined and heat treated with suitable breaking strength,
  • Conveyor chain is provided with Hardened and ground Rollers fitted with Precision deep grove ball bearings for longer and trouble free continuous duty application. There shall not be frequent replacement, stoppages and breakdowns.
  • Hinged Belt Pans / over lapping Side Wings / Aprons are in formed section made out of Steel plates.
  • Full length of Conveyor is provided with boltable type hopper on both sides.
  • Provided with suitable chain guards, safety mesh and easily removable Oil /Scrap collecting tray at bottom side.
  • Automatic Lubrication System is provided to lubricate the chain (Essentially the chain links, Roller-Pin-Bush) to protect them from wear and tear & to give long trouble free service life.
  • There shall be an over load protection in the form of Torque Limiter which will avoid any damage to the Conveyor and Gear drives and the conveyor comes to a halt in the event of any overload or jamming.
  • Additional safety – overload protection with segmented disc is provided with Proximity Sensor that safeguards the geared motor and the entire conveyor.
  • Conveyor speed shall be with VFD, and with suitable gearbox and motor of internationally renowned brands like SEW / Sumitomo etc or as specified by the customer.
  • Walkway, support structure is provided for Main Conveyor as per requirement.
  • Maintenance platform with Chequred Plate Covering and hand railing provided at the discharge end of Main Conveyor to ease the maintenance work.
  • Bi-Directional and Electro-Pneumatically operated Chute is provided below the main discharge conveyor and is designed to feed two trucks below the platform at both sides.
  • Overhead Scrap Storage Silos with Powerised Door openings are provided for effective storage and discharge of Scrap.
  • Cross over bridges, staircases, ladders, platforms for conveyors are provide at appropriate locations.
  • Suitable PLC based Electrical Control Panel along with Remote Panels shall be provided with suitable PLC, HMI, VFD, Ethernet communication, Pull chord, Pilot lamp and chimer (Audio visual alarming system). Interlocking shall be there
    between the Conveyors to provide proper sequence of operations.
  • The interlocking between Conveyors is done through PLC to ensure foolproof system automation like, while starting, – the Main Discharge Conveyor starts first and subsequently the sub conveyors start with a time delay adjustment.
  • While stopping, they stop in reverse manner; that the sub conveyors stop first and the Main discharge conveyor in the end. (This arrangement is provided where ever applicable)
  • The Electric controls shall have manual and with auto functions so that in the event of maintenance conveyor can be operated independently.
