FEM ANALYSIS OF MOVABLE SHUTTLE HEAD MAIN FRAME FOR BULK MATERIAL HANDLING SYSTEM
Keywords:Bulk Material Handling (BMH), movable Shuttle head, Junction house, VVFD control
This paper describes the use and benefits of Movable shuttle head over conventional chute arrangement for material transfer point between discharging and receiving conveyor.
In case of Movable Shuttle Head, with the command given from central control room, drive will position the shuttle head to respective conveyor feed point by forward/ reverse movement of shuttle on fixed rail in Junction house. Lesser height of material transfer intern lesser power consumption of feed conveyor and infrastructure cost and one conveyor can feed to multiple receiving conveyors are some of the Major benefits of Movable Shuttle Heads.
