Ship Loading

Bruks Siwertell’s market leading ship loaders are based on screw, aeroslide or belt conveying technologies and are delivered as stand alone equipment or as part of terminal systems.

Ship loaders are supplied as stationary or rail travelling units with telescoping and slewing configurations. For even greater access to all parts of the hold shuttling and slewing screw type loaders can be suppllied with a scissor arm arrangement.

Bruks Siwertell can deliver systems with loading capacities as high as 12,000 t/h.

Bruks Siwertell ship loaders are cost effective and kind to the environment. They are supplied with loading spouts designed to suit the material to be handled reducing dust and spillage to a minimum.

These include double walled flexible spouts and cascade type bellows with a lightweight compact design. Bruks Siwertell loaders can be ordered as stand alone products or as part of a complete bulk terminal solution.

Screw type loaders:

A screw type ship loader is totally enclosed and commonly used for handling powdery and dusty materials such as cement, clinker, sulfur and minerals. Screw conveyors load ships up to Panamax size.

Aeroslide loaders:

Totally enclosed aeroslide ship loaders are generally used to handle easily fluidised materials such as cement, dry fly ash and alumina. They can load ships up to 80,000 dwt. Aeroslide loaders must be installed on a downward slope as gravity is essential to their operation. They can be ideal when height restrictions are a major factor.

Belt Conveyor loaders:

A Bruks Siwertell belt conveyor ship loader can handle a broad range of commodities including lumpy, granular and sticky materials such as coal, ores, minerals, grains, feedstuff and fertilisers. They benefit from low energy consumption and can load ships up to 300,000 dwt. Belt conveyors can be covered to protect cargo and minimise environmental impact and spillage.

Bruks Siwertell loaders are tailored to your needs with a focus on performance.

Outstanding performance relates not only to capacity but also to efficiency, economy, the environment, safety and careful cargo handling.

Bruks Siwertell offer versatile systems. For example a loader can be designed to be equally environment friendly and efficient loading either cement or clinker; two commodities used by the same industry but with totally different characteristics. That versatility extends to vessel size; a loader can provide exactly the same effectiveness loading coastal barges or large ocean going bulk carriers.
