BRUKS Chain Reclaim Hopper

BRUKS offers a free standing chain receiving hopper used to receive and convey materials onto the customer’s take-away conveyor. The BRUKS design utilizes above grade construction eliminating the need for civil excavation or below grade pits. The live bottom design uses heavy duty class drag chain to efficiently convey the materials in mass through a shear gate prior to discharging onto the take-away conveyor.

  • Above grade installation
  • Free standing design
  • Proven design capable of handling a variety of materials

BRUKS Chain Reclaim Hopper

The BRUKS chain reclaim hopper is offered in multiple widths. A 12’ wide design is recommended for clean, uniform and free flowing materials. For processes that may receive lower quality materials, BRUKS recommends the extra wide 14’ or 16’ hopper design.

The hopper’s conveying capacity is controlled by chain speed and the adjustable shear gate opening. In typical operations these parameters are permanently established as part of the commissioning phase. By utilizing a VFD (by others) the customer will maintain the ability to fine tune reclaim capacities through chain speed control.

The BRUKS equipment is provided with a discharge hood that covers the head pulley of the hopper. This hood includes a mounting flange for the customer’s chute work leading to the take-away conveyor’s skirt board.

BRUKS offers custom designs that can be suited to the individual customer needs. Below are some example sizes that are typical of BRUKS Hopper Designs.

Material Flow Enhancers

Where material clumping or bridging is a concern, the BRUKS hopper can be equipped with ancillary devices to improve material flow. A spike roll can be provided inside the hopper to break apart large clumps of material that may result in “frozen” or “high sap” conditions. The spike roll is designed to reduce the size of these clumps prior to shear gate. Another option for improved material flow is a levelling roll at the discharge head of the hopper. The levelling roll is designed to uniformly distribute material onto the take-away conveyor.


Dust Control

In an application where dust control or mitigation is an issue. BRUKS hoppers can be equipmented with containment devices or hoods that reduce and contain dust emissions.
