Air-stowing machine

Jump to navigationJump to search

The machine used for blowing the stone chippings into the waste area in pneumatic stowing. It consists of a steel paddle wheel revolving in an adjustable casing. Stowing dirt is fed continuously from a hopper to the machine, which in turn blows the material through pipes 5 to 6 in (13 to 15 cm) in diameter into the waste area.
