Selecting the right ship unloading system.

For efficient unloading of grain and other free flowing bulk goods, several continuous ship unloading systems (CSU) such as a vertical chain, pneumatic, and belt conveyer are employed worldwide. Each of these systems is founded on sophisticated, powerful technology and can be the perfect instrument for a specific area of application. An often-used rule of thumb is that pneumatic unloaders are an option with lower unloading capacities up to 600 t/h, while mechanical unloaders show off their strengths at higher capacities.
