Charging

Trough charging machine TC or pusher shield charging machine SC

Trough charging machine

Using forklifts

Charging should be realised speedily and simply. This can be achieved with a stacker with pivoting forks, as this enables the direct charging of reflux containers or ingot packages.

Using lifting / tilting equipment

Conversely, lifting / tilting equipment is used for furnaces with a greater melting capacity. Reflux or ingot containers are positioned in readiness in the lift in this case to permit automatic charging of the furnace when required.

Using charging machinery

A few furnaces have a storage buffer for fully automatic charging. We have equipped these with a twin-level roller conveyor with a discharge station and charging machine for this purpose. During charging, ingots and reflux material in containers are positioned on the roller conveyor of the loading station using forklifts, automatically weighed, charged and received again empty in the discharge station. The buffer in the roller conveyor can be expanded here to meet requirements, with the furnace control ensuring optimum melting operation.

Movable charging machines:

Movable charging machines enable the achievement of even greater productivity.

Trough charging machine TC: for contaminated scrap to hearth-type and multi-chamber melting furnaces with enclosed charging trough and fume collection hood

Movable – for contaminated scrap to hearth-type and multi-chamber melting furnaces with enclosed charging trough and fume collection hood.

Series with loading weights from 3 to 12 t:

  • Investment security, thanks to intelligent design
  • Rail-linked design
  • Adaptation of structure sizes to the furnace
  • Automatic operation
  • Collection of charging fumes during operation
  • Optional:
    - Weighing of scrap
    - Charging of several furnaces in a row

Applications

The trough charging machine TC is ideally suitable for contaminated scrap, reflux material, residual section material, packages and ingots. Only conditionally suitable for frequent charging of turnings or chip material.

Simple handling

Charging is extremely uncomplicated, thanks to the low charging height. It can be realised with a stacker or wheel loader. A wheel loader with a gripper is advantageous for loose scrap.

Rapid charging and a high degree of availability

Large scrap quantities can be loaded in the shortest possible time with the trough charging machine TC – without fume formation and only a low maintenance requirement.

Pusher shield charging machine SC: for hearth and bath-type melting furnaces with an open charging trough

Movable – for hearth and bath-type melting furnaces with an open charging trough.

  • Series with loading weights from 1 to 25 t
  • Investment security, thanks to intelligent design
  • Rail-linked design
  • Adaptation of structure sizes to the furnace
  • Optional:
    - Automatic operation
    - Weighing of scrap
    - Charging of several furnaces in a row

Applications

The pusher shield charging machine is ideally suitable for lumpy scrap, T-bars, sows and ingots, but only conditionally suitable for charging of turnings or chip material.

Simple handling

Charging is extremely uncomplicated, thanks to the low charging height. It can be realised with a stacker or wheel loader. A wheel loader with a gripper is advantageous for loose scrap.

Rapid charging – and enormous capacity

The series can even handle major load weights in the shortest time possible. The largest machine can charge up to 25 t within only 3 to 4 min. The machine is therefore capable of handling enormous charging capacities – with a high level of availability and a low maintenance requirement.
