Beam Stage Loader
PERFECTLY MATCHED TO THE FACE CONVEYOR
Entry conveyor or stage loader pans are normally of the same type as used in the face. These are normally wider than the Armored Face Conveyor ( AFC). While the return roller is integrated into the cross-frame design, the head drive frame of the stage loader is pensionable using hydraulic cylinders.
The crusher, usually an impact roller, is integrated into the stage loader design. The following gooseneck lifts the stage loader discharge over the belt tail piece. Belt tail pieces are available in fixed-, skid- or crawler mounted versions with an overlap of up to 3.5 m (11.5 ft), all equipped with self-cleaning return drums. The operator can use any specified belt width in this tailor-made equipment.
