BRUKS Circular Blending Bed Stacker Reclaimer
The BRUKS Circular Blending Bed Stacker Reclaimer is a fully circular pile storage system that has true Firs IN, First Out (FIFO) pile management. Blending occurs during the stacking and reclaiming phases, significantly reducing variability in the pile.
The BRUKS Circular Blending Bed Stacker Reclaimer is designed in versions ranging from less than 1 million cubic feet of live storage, to over 10 million cubic feet.
The Circular Blending Bed Stacker Reclaimer accomplishes material stacking via an Air Cushion Belt Conveyor or Conventional Idler Conveyor slewing in a continuous 360 degree clockwise motion. Dusting is minimized by fully controlling the material through discharge.
The reclaimer bridge is a truss structure design that rotates about the stacker column on a travel drive/wheel arrangement. Reclaiming of the material is done through the continuous traveling of the harrow through the material which is mounted on the reclaimer truss structure. The reversible mechanical harrow agitates the free flowing material causing the material to cascade downward into the mechanical screw reclaim device. This accomplishes true first-in-first-out reclaiming of the material.
The screw reclaim device then conveys the material into the center turret of the machine. Controlled material flow is achieved by delivering the material through the turret to the discharge chute. Dusting is also minimized here as BRI requires no open hoppers. The material is directed into the reclaim conveyor and delivered away from the machine.
The BRUKS design does not require a cumbersome and high maintenance screw hopper to be located under the reclaim hopper. BRUKS achieves controlled flow with the design of the primary screw reclaim. This is accomplished with a half trough allowing excess material to fall off of the back of the screw in the case of surges.
