“We are delighted the new HAB Feeder has received this recognition from the key global mining publication, Mining Magazine. When launching the new HAB Feeder in late 2019, we were sure it would meet customer demand for heavy-duty, reliable performance, easy operation and maintenance and flexibility,” commented Leon Kemp, Global Product Line Manager for Feeders & Feeder Breakers at FLSmidth.

The HAB Feeder is a hybrid, power-efficient and high-tonnage belt-over-apron feeder that delivers the strength of an apron feeder with the spillage control of a conveyor system.

With a low-profile loading deck and a completely modular design, it provides an affordable solution for adjustable-rate feeding of abrasive materials. It therefore provides an affordable solution for feeding materials, such as mineral sands, iron ore and bauxite, in mid-tier ROM applications and stockyard management operations.

When the new HAB Feeder was launched in September, FLSmidth’s Manager of Capital Equipment, PC Kruger explained: “The HAB Feeder is specifically designed to feed abrasive materials at an adjustable rate onto conveyor belts and sizers. Because it is entirely modular, the HAB Feeder can be installed with minimal site preparation, anywhere near a stockpile. It is semi-mobile for simple onsite relocation or repositioning. Moving the feeder is as easy as dragging or pushing it with standard stockyard equipment.”
