Furnace Feeders | PRAB
Health & Safety
Furnace feeders decrease scrap contact with operators and allow them to be distanced from high-temperature furnaces. Meter feeding provides for safer re-melt.
Low Maintenance
PRAB conveyors have the industry’s leading reputation as being dependable low-maintenance equipment with long service lives. The furnace feeder also offers no carry over issues and can run in batch or with continuous feed for limited operator involvement.
Heavy-Duty
PRAB conveyors are built tough to withstand the harsh conditions and materials moved in the metalworking industry.
Value
The furnace feeder decreases cycle times by automatically transporting scrap to re-melt- eliminating operator involvement and keeping them from within reach of the heat source. PRAB conveyors reduce downtime by automating the scrap transfer process- maximizing machine operator production time.

Meter feed directly to scrap metal furnace.

Meter feed abrasive die scrap, casting metal, and other materials directly to the melting furnace.

PRAB’s furnace feeder scrap removal systems allow you to meter feed abrasive die scrap casting metal and other materials directly to the scrap metal furnace.

Advantage of a PRAB Furnace Feeders include:

  • Feeds both reverbs and “through-the-wall” designs
  • Standard design incorporates an oscillating steel trough plus heat shields and stainless-steel discharge chutes that extend into melt area
  • May be batch loaded or used as the final component of a complete scrap-to-remelt system for scrap metal recycling
  • Easily replaceable stainless-steel trough extension and heat shield
