On the top part of the slewable boom is installed another
filter dedicated to the ducting of the telescopic
loading chute, through two connections, functioning as and extraction system to create a vacuum atmosphere into the holds of ocean vessel.
The telescopic chute is operated by a cable winch for vertical movement. The internal part of
chute is equipped with dedicated lined guide
cones. The totally enclosed chain-conveyor frames
also help to meet the aim of environmental
friendliness, as they enable significant noise
Shiploading is carried out by a combination of
slewing, luffing-lowering and telescoping
movements. All movements are controlled from
the same control cabin by means of PLC
The advantages of using a telescopic chute
with an extraction system
The telescopic chute is an ideal solution to prevent the problem
of breaking particles and to minimize dust generation when
loading bulk material. The design of the telescopic chute ensures
that material particles are kept in mass flow form and at low
velocity. In fact the internal lining of the module cones minimize
the escape of dust particles without affecting loading rates. The
extraction system, represented by the top boom filters,
guarantees a perfect vacuum atmosphere into the vessel hold,
preventing any dust emission.
Due to the minimal free-fall and the low velocity that the
material experiences, greatly reduced material degradation is
evident when loading sized product.
CASE STUDY 2: LE HAVRE PORT, FRANCE — YARA
Bedeschi is in the process of manufacturing a shiploader to
handle urea for the Yara France operations at the Port of Le
Havre. The contract is
startup activities. The
shiploader is designed for
loading at a rate up to
250tph and for vessels
with a capacity up to
shiploader is a luffing and
travelling type and it is
equipped with the
traditional belt conveyor
boom. The machine will
replace the current shiploader at the harbour terminal, a few kilometres away from
the Le Havre Yara plant. It will become the connection point for
final product export operations. Commissioning of the machine
is expected to take place in the middle of 2016. This project is
the third to be awarded by Yara to Bedeschi, confirming the
reliability of Bedeschi machines in this field.
Design capacity 250tph
In an ever-more globalized and competitive world, port infrastructures are rapidly changing. It is often necessary to handle bulk material far from the quarries, by sea, with ships that are becoming bigger. It looks clear that to guarantee efficiency in the ports in this changed scenario it is necessary to optimize the position and the volume of the stored material, reduce the loading/unloading times and create functional and eco-friendly terminals. This is why the modern port has to be equipped with all kinds of machines like shiploaders, conveyors, etc. to be able to complete the vessel’s loading process in the minimum time considering also dust-free solutions.
Bedeschi, with its wide range of machines is able to satisfy the modern need for solutions that are flexible, efficient, eco-friendly and, last but not least, cost-effective.
Bedeschi has many years of experience in supplying on-shore and off-shore material handling systems and extensive experience in the design of bulk material handling plants for continuous loading of dry bulk cargo onto ocean vessels up to Capesize in deep water anchorage. Each new project incorporates feedback received from the on-going systems to continually improve the design of the machines.
