RT Welding & Fabrication, Inc. has for years been able to serve the local Grave and Concrete Block manufacturing companies. RTW has has among other things, fabricated and installed radial stacking conveyors, fabricated block racks and provided maintenance at different plants.
The first group of pictures show a radial stacker being fabricated at our shop. This was made for Bluegrass Materials and transported to a plant in Allen, KY. Unfortunately we do not have any pictures of the stacker after it was erected. However we were told by the customer that everything worked great. They had it fully erected in only two hours. Our design made that possible. You can see the conveyor has a hopper mounted near the tail end. The customer uses their loader to fill the hopper to load the conveyor. We designed baffles in the hopper to slow down the speed of the material being dumped to prevent overloading the conveyor.
The next group of pictures is a sizing grizzly that was use at a limestone quarry. This grizzly is used to separate the stone by size. The grizzly is made to be size adjustable.
The last group is a 1 ton sand hopper. This hopper design makes possible quick, and relatively precise measuring of sand. The hopper is used by first hanging the 1 Ton bag with a pallet underneath, then filling the hopper flush to the top, pull the lever to dump, pick the pallet and bag up with a forklift and then load the bag in the customers truck. This keeps the seller from giving away sand but at the same ensure the customer is getting a full 1 ton of sand. Our customer loved the way it worked and assured us it would pay for itself quickly. Before they had an accurate method of measuring, they were giving much more than a ton for a ton.
These pictures are only samples of the work we have done for the aggregate industry.
