The larger 8000 metric tph shiploader is a travelling type of shiploader. The unit has a series of parallel bogies that are mounted on rails that run parallel to the ship and run the length of the dock. The shiploader unit is fed by a dock conveyor and a travelling tripper conveyor that will move with the shiploader. The shipoloader incorporates a luffing boom that allows the shiploader to load different types of vessels. The luffing boom can also be raised in a vertical position for storage purposes and to allow the vessel to depart the berth.
The smaller 4000 metric tph shiploader is mounted on a fixed structure that offers a slewing action for the boom to reach different areas of the ships hold. The luffing boom also features a telescope action to extend into different areas of the ships hold.
A ship loader is equipment that is used for loading vessels continuously with coal, iron ore, cement, grain and other bulk materials. Ship loading equipment typically uses a belt conveyor in a continuous action to move bulk product from a dock conveyor onto the vessels. All ship loaders must be designed to load different sizes of ships that will berth at the port. The LAXT 8000 M TPH ship loader uses a travelling movement and incorporates a shuttle type of conveyor and a luffing feature to allow movement in three axes so that the ship loader can efficiently load many different sizes of ships. The LAXT 8000 M TPH shiploader ship loader also has a chute and rotating spoon arrangement for directing the bulk product into the different areas of a ships hold.
