Transport of bulk material with ships
Bulk material has to be conveyed in large quantities. Building materials, coal, cereals, fodder, mineral compounds or products of the chemical industry are often loaded at the production location in suitable vehicles and transported as bulk cargo to other locations.
It is particularly important to provide technical loading and handling systems designed specifically for the product and adapted to the installation conditions. When dimensioning these systems, characteristics of the goods like bulk density, product temperature as well as flow properties are to be taken into account. Other important criteria are the loading capacity, weight and volume monitoring and dust-free, environmentally friendly operation.
