Traveling Trippers

Heavy Duty High Tonnage Applications

Traveling Tripper Copper Mine Peru
  • Bunker Slot Sealing Systems for Dust...

The Concept

The Traveling Discharge Chute must be sealed to minimize dust escaping from the bunker slot.

  • A continuous self-supporting seal belt covers the bunker slot from end to end
  • Bend pulleys attached to the tripper raise the seal belt above the discharge chute and then place it back down over the slot
  • A tensioning device at one end of the seal belt keeps constant tension on the system

The result is an opening that moves with the discharge chute

Large Trippers handling 10,000 tons per hour and more are extrremely complex machines.
