Feed Chute Transport

Rapid extraction, transportation and replacement of mill feed chutes is vital to a fast reline. Removing the feed chute is the first activity once the mill is stopped. It allows access to the inside of the mill. With constant vibration and an often corrosive environment, the older a feed chute gets, the harder it is to remove. This is exacerbated with the trend to bigger chutes. RME’s wide range of feed chute technologies provide safe and efficient solutions for every situation, including rail based systems and rubber tyred, multi-wheel systems.
