Stock Pile Reclaimers for better stockpile management

Quickly and efficiently reclaim bulk materials from your stockpiles with our advanced Stock Pile Reclaimers. We offer several types, including bucket wheel, scraper and drum-type reclaimers, in a number of configurations and sizes. 

Depending on your application, these can be standardised or custom-built; they offer capacities of up to 20,000 tph (up to 22,000 stph). Your choice of design depends upon factors such as the size and shape of your stockpile(s), the type of material to be reclaimed, the required reclaiming rate and the need for blending or homogenisation.

  

 

Bucket wheel boom reclaimers


This style of reclaimer is ideal for reclaiming large volumes of bulk materials. The boom allows luffing and slewing action, as well as long travel, as the bucket wheel rotates and digs the material from the stockpile. Our bucket wheel boom reclaimers are available as a pylon-type for low- to medium-bulk-density applications or a rocker-type, which minimises the migration of the centre of gravity during operation, allowing high capacities.


 

Bridge-type bucket wheel reclaimers


This reclaimer type is suitable for wide stockpiles, and it provides more efficient blending – which can be even more improved by using an optional second bucket wheel for dual operation. We recommend this reclaimer style when homogenisation is a primary requirement.

 

 

Bridge-type scrapers


With the bridge-type scraper reclaimer, circumferential scraper blades below the bridge frame take over the reclaiming operation. Oscillating rakes feed the material evenly to ensure optimal blending and homogenisation.

 

  

Portal scrapers


The rail-mounted portal scraper reclaimer features a bucket chain for cost-effective, high-capacity reclaiming of numerous bulk material types where homogenisation is not a priority. For smaller stockpile volumes, semi-portal units minimise required hall dimensions. With full-portal units, the scraping arms can be divided into primary and secondary booms. A distinct advantage of the portal reclaimer is that it can be long-travelled over the stockpile to reclaim another section, if necessary.

 

 

Side scrapers


We offer two types of side scraper reclaimer – circular and longitudinal. The longitudinal side scraper is used in a production line as a relatively small bulk material buffer store, with stockpiles placed inline. It can handle capacities up to 1,000 tph (1,100 stph). The circular side scraper provides capacities up to 1,500 tph (1,650 stph); it can be used in a production line as a buffer store for nearly all types of bulk material. With both types of side scrapers, while building up one pile by cone shell stacking, another pile is reclaimed.

 

 

Drum-type reclaimers


Our drum-type reclaimer has a long rotating drum fitted with reclaiming buckets, into which a harrow uniformly feeds the material. It has capacities of up to 8,000 tph (8,800 stph), and is an ideal solution when high homogenisation grades are critical. It also is an alternative to a single- or double-bridge bucket wheel reclaimer.
