Apron Conveyors

An apron conveyor is a specialized conveyer system used to carry granular or lumpy material. The conveyer is made up of a series of individual apron plates that are overlapped and connected on their underside by hinges. The overlapping aprons provide strength for heavy duty loads and the lack of gaps helps to eliminate loss of material for granular loads. The apron construction also makes it easy to vary the length of the conveyor by adding or removing apron plates.
