HMA Materials Handling designs and manufactures a range of Reclaim and Apron Feeders used primarily in the mining industry to reclaim run-of-mine and product coal at mines or from the coal stockpiles at shipping terminals and power stations.

HMA Materials Handling Feeders are designed to be fed by either truck or dozer, without the need for large dump hoppers or underground reclaim tunnels. They are suited to smaller operations with lower feed rate requirements. When reclaiming coal from a stockpile or hopper, a large quantity of product must be fed onto a conveyor belt or other process equipment, making HMA Materials Handling Feeders a highly cost-effective solution.

HMA Materials Reclaim and Apron Feeders are an efficient way of reclaiming or feeding material in a wide variety of applications. Each feeder is custom-designed to suit the application and the feeding needs of our clients.
