Bulk loading heads for fast and dust-free loading
Bulk loading heads work well together with silo vehicles to enable fast, dust-free loading. This is achieved by keeping the material flow separate from the de-dusting system. This clean operation can be provided via a central de-dusting air system or an integrated compressed air filter. This is independent of a central system and returns the extracted dust to the material flow. Level indicators halt the loading process when the desired fill level is reached, and a truck scale monitors the weight. At the end of the loading process, a vibration motor shakes off any bulk material still clinging to the truck. Thus, every gram of product is loaded and the vehicles remain clean. For higher loading capacities, as in the cement industry, mobile or articulating conveyors with up to two bulk loading heads are used.
Loading systems for multiple means of transportation
Telescopic loading systems keep loading areas dust-free and clean, which is important for open vehicles. The bulk loading head first moves down to the floor of the vehicle. A fill level sensor automatically regulates the elevation. The dust collector remains on “top” of the load during the entire filling process and prevents dust from being circulated. In addition to trucks, train cars are also used for transporting bulk goods over land. In railway wagon loading systems, telescopic loading technology is also used to fill the freight cars with clinker and other minerals in a dust-free manner. On-track scales measure the volume and the total weight of the freight wagon. Ships are used for transporting bulk materials overseas. Belt conveyors and vertical telescopic pipes are most often used for loading. In consideration of the environment, the loading machines can be designed to be completely sealed to prevent the exchange of dust with the surrounding environment.
Easy bag transfer with loading head
We have the patent! A bag loader, a machine for transferring bags with a loading head for loading and unloading trucks and freight cars with ease – partially or fully automated. The device can be adjusted on 3 axes and is capable of distributing bags evenly to save space and ensure transport safety. The complete system consists of bag transfer equipment, devices for cleaning bags and quality checks for rejecting broken bags, as well as a system interface. This design has been in operation for many years now.
