The transportation of bulk materials is a major challenge to ensure the availability of building materials when they are needed. System availability and reliability are often overlooked and quick solutions are used which only secures limited success. RUD has a wide range of experience across conveyor industries for fertilizer, potash, salt and cement to name a few.

RUD’s conveyor and conveying systems for the bulk materials industry includes: scraper conveyors; drag chain conveyors, screw conveyors and apron feeders.

BULKOS Apron conveyors use round steel link chain as a pulling element which is driven by pocket wheels. The apron conveyor possesses many advantages, its robust simple construction to its lower construction height due to smaller diameter wheels. The round link chain system used is self-cleaning and works well in wet, corrosive and dirty environments. RUD Apron feeders are ideal for the transport of bulk and unit bulk loads in applications such as power stations, recycling and construction.
