Crop Shear Conveyor System

Issue:

  • Customer was transferring crop shear scraps into a large pit
  • The transfer conveyor for the scrap was using a leather belt and needed to be replaced as often as once per week
  • The pit collection was emptied using a magnetic crane transferring the scrap overtop of existing equipment
  • Customer wanted to change direction of the transfer, and convey out of the building into scrap containers

Solution:

  • CHL Systems performed an Engineering Study of the facility, and designed and fabricated over 125’ of heavy duty conveyors to transfer the scrap
  • The system was integrated with the crop shear and opened up space over the pit to install additional equipment

Result:

  • Conveyor system transfers scrap from the crop shear out of the building and into scrap containers
  • System is safer and more efficient with greatly improved reliability
