Panorama Buffer Storage

Buffer Storage

Stockpiles are the simplest form of bulk material storage. They serve as storage or intermediate storage and are a key link between material preparation and production. Where protection from the elements is necessary or environmental regulation aspects demand it, stockpiles are also formed under cover. For both variants a series of typical stockyard configurations have emerged:

Open Storage with Portal Scraper

  • Stockpile formation using mobile belt stackers with raisable and lowerable boom (slewable is also optionally available)
  • Stockpile formation with portal scraper (with stockpiles of more than 30m width)
  • Removal over the entire stockpile length or preselected sections
  • Fully automatic operation
  • Simultaneous storage and reclaim (with more than one stockpile)
  • Rapid change of stockpile sections

Open Storage with Combi-Portal Scraper

  • Applications where storage and reclaim do not need to be performed simultaneously
  • Storage and reclaim with only one machine (lower investment costs)
  • Less space requirement

Covered Storage with Portal Scraper

  • Stockpile formation with mobile travelling tripper arranged under the shed roof
  • Free stockpile cone or formable/removable stockpiles separated by partition walls
  • Stockpile formation with portal scraper
  • Reclaim possible over the entire stockpile length or in individual sections
  • Fully automation operation
  • Rapid changeover possible between chamber or stockpile sections
  • Matched shed height through construction with two booms on the portal scraper
