Joy underground feeder-breakers are the industry standard for providing efficient, flexible sizing and surge capacity. As the interface between batch haulage and the conveyor belt, feeder-breakers are the essential connection between the mining and material handling systems, allowing both to operate at maximum efficiency and productivity. The UFB-16 was designed specifically to meet the operational and legal requirements of the South African market. 

Enhanced breaker drum

The UFB-16 features an enhanced breaker drum:

  • Critical component for machine performance
  • Lasts up to three times longer than competitive designs for longer service
  • Tapered roller bearing design with improved seals for increased productivity
