Euroblend Mobile Shiploaders are designed to speed vessel loading handling the complete range of dry bulk cargoes. Mobile Shiploaders offer the level of performance normally associated with fixed installations but with complete flexibility. Since no special civil works are required, the capital cost of a new export facility is drastically reduced. The flexibility and fast track availability offered by mobile equipment allows the port operator to react to changing market conditions and to easily relocate or even resell the equipment.
The system is made up of a mobile equipment moving on wheels. It has a system of hoppers and conveyor belts. The several configurations available make it possible to load every kind of vessel and bulk material, at rates up to 800 ton/h and with the minimum encumbrance of the quay.
Euroblend Shiploaders are completely mobile thanks to a towing system, on request, through a driving integrated system with motorized wheels. The machine maneuverability takes place from the conditioned cabin or from the ground through a radio control which manages all the functions both of load and of monoeuvre.
Both the front and the back wheels are self steering, thus allowing three different types of driving:
1. Normal: to move the shiploader along the quay.
2. Crab: to move the shiploader along the hold, during the loading phase.
3. Rotation: to rotate the shiploader 360°.
The machine feeding can happen through an electrical generator or directly to the electric line.
Inclinometers mounted along the car’s axles allow to perfectly level the shiploader.
The unloaded material inside the ship hold takes place through a telescopic duct equipped with a radial movement for the achievement also of the hold sides, allowing the optimization of its filling. The unloading height is adjustable, in order to load the holds of every ship.
Euroblend Shiploader are provided with an exclusive combined belts system which allows to reduce the number of movements necessary for the ship load and the spaces taken by the machinery on the quay, reaching outreach ability superior with the same length of the belt in comparison to the traditional shiploaders which nowadays are present on the market.
The hoppers, where the truck unload the bulk material, can contain about 30-35 cu.m. It is possible to add a second receiving unit that allows two truck to be simultaneously discharged to maximize the system handling rate and minimize the effect of delays in vehicle positioning.
The whole machine is closed and has suitable covers in order to avoid the fall of material.
