The AF-30 is a simplified, low-maintenance Feed Conveyor without a Hopper/Grizzly specifically designed for manual feeding of the HPC-30 in Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining Operations.
The AF-30’s solid and open design supports the HPC-30 with adjustable speed to match the feed requirements of the HPC-30 whether processing fine or coarse material.
Quick and easy to setup, the simple robust and reliable design allow versatility of feeding of an extremely broad range of materials in different operating conditions and applications.
Full mobility – the conveyor fastens on top of HPC-30 whenever you need to tow your machine to a new location.
The AF-30 is designed to accommodate installation in space-restricted areas with irregular terrain.
The Feed Chute can be placed on or at the base of your material stockpile to minimize the work required for feeding.
With multi-line installations the machines can be placed alongside one another to improve materials handling efficiency.
The AF-30 is an extremely versatile feeder that is well suited to fine, sandy and coarse material sized up to 150mm / 6”
A broad size range of wet gravels can be processed.
Demanding materials including gravels containing a high percentage of sticky clay can also be processed.
The AF-30 is specifically designed for manual feeding of the HPC-30 in Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining Operations. Feed rate is primarily determined by the rate at which material is loaded into the Feed Chute.
The most efficient configuration is to build your material stockpile alongside the AF-30 so that material can be shoveled directly into the Feed Chute with minimal effort.
A small excavator or backhoe can also be used to load material directly into the AF-30.
The robust, open Feed Chute is large enough for material to be staged just prior to feeding onto the conveyor. The rear lip of the Chute is designed for easy attachment of a small loading ramp.
A solid frame supports the Feed Chute and Conveyor and automatically allows the conveyor to rotate to any required inclination.
Tensioners allow for quick and easy tracking and tensioning of the Conveyor Belt.
The winged lower Conveyor Pulley minimizes damage and wear of the Conveyor Belt.
Troughed conveyor idlers prevent material from spilling off the conveyor belt. Idler brackets are designed for easy maintenance of idlers.
A self-tensioning Belt Scraper installed on the inside of the conveyor belt, helps to keep Idlers and Pulleys clean.
Conveyor Support Legs maintain stability of the conveyor and can be set to suit the terrain and inclination of the conveyor.
The Drive System is mounted at the end of the conveyor belt, a safe distance away from the Feed Chute.
A digital controller which controls the conveyor belt speed can also be used to control the rate at which material is fed to the HPC-30.
The Digital Controller and Circuit Breaker are housed in a Waterproof Electrical Cabinet which can be mounted on the HPC-30 or separately.
AF-30 ships together with HPC-30 and accessories in a 20′ container. Shipping container may be purchased to be converted into an on-site workshop or secure storage room.
