RUSSELL Rubber-Tyred Feed Chute Transporters

RME offers two distinct families of rubber-tyred Feed Chute Transporters (FCT):

RUSSELL Classic Feed Chute Transporter

RUSSELL Multi-Wheel Feed Chute Transporter

RUSSELL Rubber-Tyred FCTs are vehicles which are independent of any mill feed chute. The three major benefits of this solution are:

  • The ability of one FCT to service multiple mills (diesel power recommended).
  • The ability to be stored away from the feed chute during mill operation, saving the FCT from damage caused by feed chute leaks.
  • The ability to negotiate floor obstacles such as spillage and embedded rail tracks.

RUSSELL Rubber-Tyred FCTs can be powered hydraulically from the RUSSELL Mill Relining Machine, electrically from plant supply or, most conveniently, via on-board diesel power for independent travel. 

RUSSELL Classic Feed Chute Transporter

The ability of the RUSSELL Classic Feed Chute Transporters (FCT) to safely and quickly extract and completely remove a mills feed chute away from a mill greatly enhances the start of the reline process and the space available in front of the mill for relining access.
