Besides the conveyor technology, BEUMER can supply the ship loading technology best suited for your task, be that a quadrant-type ship loader, a travelling ship loader with luffing and slewing gear or a barge loader with a telescopic conveyor.

A ship loading system must provide fast ship turnaround, while at the same time being environmentally friendly, creating no spillage and minimal dust emissions. It has to take care of space requirements on the jetty, allowing movement of trucks and other vehicles, it has to accommodate to the different ship sizes and types as well as take care of the requirements of the conveyed material. With BEUMERs modular design it is possible to provide a tailor-made concept.

Requirements of ship loader

For fast ship turnaround, it would be optimal if the ship would not have to move during the loading process. That means that the ship loader must be able to reach the entire length of the ship. This can be achieved by either using quadrant ship loaders with telescopic conveyors or by putting a ship loader on rails, allowing the ship loader to travel along the ship.

To reach the complete width of the ship, either a telescopic boom or conveyor can be used or a slewing gear can be applied. Depending on the material, also a slinger belt conveyor can be used.

If the vertical movement of the ship (due to the loading process and the tide) is small enough, a vertically fixed boom can be applied, otherwise it is necessary that the boom of the ship loader can be lifted.

BEUMER ship loader portfolio

BEUMER ship loading technology is provided for the following industries: Mining, Cement, Power, Chemical (fertilizer) and Food (grains). Our typical ship loaders work with up to 4000tph and have a boom length of up to 60m.

The most common types of ship loaders are the stationary ship loader with telescopic boom, a ship loader with luffing and slewing gear and the ship loader with only a luffing gear.

Due to space restrictions, it might be required that the ship loader is fed by a bucket elevator.

Depending on the material loaded, the standard troughed belt conveyor on the ship loader boom can also be replaced by a pneumatic conveying line or a screw conveyor.
