BRUKS Drive-Thru Truck Dump


BRUKS Drive-Thru Truck Dump

The BRUKS Drive-Thru Truck Dumper is the most time and space efficient design on the market for unloading chip trailers. It is designed to maximize both throughput and real estate. Similar to other BRUKS designs, it requires very little operator interface and provides for safe and efficient unloading of trucks. The Drive-Thru design is proven and has been employed in operations for many years handling a wide variety of material types.

  • Robust and reliable design
  • Proven safety record
  • Multiple installations
  • Multiple designs to meet a variety of applications and materials


BRUKS Drive-Thru Truck Dump

As compared to other designs, the Drive-Thru Design allows drivers to position truck and trailer without the need to back into place. The driver enters the platform by pulling the truck and trailer forward by way of crossing a “pit bridge”. This method increases the processing capability of the truck dumper and results into more truck processed daily. The BRUKS tipping platform has been designed to survive under extreme high use conditions typical of most processing facilities. Unlike others, the BRUKS platform has a life expectancy of 2,000,000 cycles. This will far exceed 25 years of full-time service.

The platform can be custom designed to handle a variety of lengths and weights. The platform is designed to raise to a maximum angle (65 degrees) causing the material to flow freely into the hopper. The full lift and lower cycle is completed in approximately 3.5 minutes.

BRUKS offers a compatible receiving hopper used to convey materials away from the truck dumper and onto the customer’s take-away conveyor. 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. 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.

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 platforms and hoppers can be equipment with containment devices or hoods that reduce and contain dust emissions.
