Automatic Loading

Modern high speed hoisting systems must be kept in motion as much of the time as possible. Therefore you cannot afford to have a skip waiting for a slow loading arrangement. Our skip loading systems will move your ore and/or waste from your ore passes or storage-surge bins to your skip and control your hoisting plant automatically and unattended. Multiple level and manual operation systems are available.

At the heart of our loading system is the proven load-sensing device between the measuring capsule and its supporting structure, which controls the feeders or conveyors and the gates or transfer hoppers on two compartment systems

Loading System Package

Many types of configurations are available and almost any arrangement and capacity has already been supplied. Dorr-Oliver Eimco can supply the system to feed the loading station as a Loading System Package. Items like the conveyor, vibratory pan or ROSS Chain feeders and the belt magnet can be included. The cylinders, conveyor, feeders, measuring boxes and skips can all be interlocked with proximity switches and hoist controls via PLC. The entire loading and hoisting system can be fully automated. As with all our designs, we minimize maintenance by maximizing durability.
