RUSSELL Rail Feed Chute Transporters

RME offers two distinct types of Rail Feed Chute Transporters (FCT):

RUSSELL ‘R1’ Rail Feed Chute Transporter, single axis powered travel back and forth along feed chute rails which lie along the mill axis.

RUSSELL ‘R2’ Rail Feed Chute Transporter, two axis powered travel back and forth along feed chute rails which lie along the mill axis plus additional powered lift which pivots and engages a 2nd set of four rails wheels with a second pair of embedded tracks, set at 90-degrees to the mill axis.

RUSSELL Rail FCT are designed to endure the impact loads from the operating feed chute and resist corrosion and material ingress into the working parts caused by spillage.

All RUSSELL Rail FCT features the following:

  • Heavy duty seals which provide a grease purged space outside the bearing
  • High impact filament wound plain bearings
  • Bearing and shafts sized for continuous operation under typical feed chute impact loads

RUSSELL Rail FCT can be powered hydraulically from RUSSELL Mill Relining Machines or electrically from the plant supply.

RME has been and continues to be proactive in developing machines that exceed safety standards. If you would like to talk to someone about the features of the RUSSELL Rail Feed Chute Transporter, please click here.
