Continuous operations require the use of a vibrating pan conveyor
or an overhead chain conveyor to deliver the castings to the first cleaning station.
"The only practical option was to locate the railcar loading conveyor next to the existing pan conveyor, which carries clinker to the finish mill," said Maintenance Manager Jim Kerns.
As a result, cleanup of any fugitive material accumulating under or around the conveyor would be extremely difficult and potentially dangerous without stopping the adjacent pan conveyor and shutting down production.
The dough imprints move onto a reciprocating conveyor that matches up each dough piece with the proper cup in the greased pan waiting on the pan conveyor
Bobcats are used to move the garbage onto a vibrating pan conveyor
, which meters the garbage onto an inclined conveyor.

with impact-absorbing spring steel slats in 8 foot or optional 16 foot lengths
As the mold passes the shakeout area, the pusher shoves the mold onto a pan conveyor
. Here, the hot casting and gating are removed from the sand by a 6000-lb payload capacity robotic manipulator.
The AUMUND inert gas system to be supplied together with the pan conveyors
with deep buckets will not only guarantee the exclusion of oxygen around the conveyed material, but also the least possible loss of temperature.
The material handling system includes belt conveyors, belt/weigh feeders, stackers, reclaimers, crushers, screens, bucket elevators, deep pan conveyors
, air pollution control filters and revamping of existing ship unloader as well as of the respective transportation.
When pan conveyors
are used, the castings can be fed directly onto the cabinet blast work conveyor.
