Tripper Cars for Mining Equipment

Tripper Car for Mining Equipment

This tripper car serves to transfer overburden by way of its short (10 meter) discharge boom into the receiving hopper of the spreader. The tripper car travels on rails over the spoil bench conveyor, with an electrical house and a cable reel drum winding the trailing cable. Travel for the full length of the conveyor is ensured by means of an appropriate number of travel wheels, sized for very low wheel loads, and driven by VFD control. An electrical cable loop connects electrical controls and power supply to the spreader. These machines are often designed for very low ground bearing pressures ranging from 10 to 20 psi.
