06/07/2015: CASE STUDY: Quick turn-around for road-mobile unloaders

First published in Milling and Grain, April 2015

Siwertell ship unloaders and loaders are based on unique screw conveyor technology, in combination with belt conveyors and aeroslides and can handle virtually any dry bulk cargo, including grains
       
Two orders for Siwertell road-mobile unloaders is of note for the grain industry. One order has gone to Saudi Arabia while the other is headed to India. While not destined for handling grain on this occasion, the two orders show the diversity of the mobile system. 

     
Siwertell, part of Cargotec, has supplied the first road-mobile unloader to the cement division of the Rashed Al-Rashed and Sons Group in Saudi Arabia. The unloader had already been built at Siwertell AB’s premises in Bjuv, Sweden and was delivered out in March, just over two months after the order was placed.

The Siwertell diesel powered 5000S road-mobile unloader is equipped with a dust filter and double bellows system to allow seamless, uninterrupted bulk material transfer to trucks or wagons. It will operate in the Port of Dammam, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, unloading at 250tonnes/hour.


Jörgen Ojeda, Director of Siwertell mobile unloaders, said the customer selected a screw-type road-mobile unloader because it best suited the company’s needs and chose a Siwertell unit because it is ranked the best among similar products.


“Siwertell’s range of mobile unloaders has a number of advantages in addition to the obvious one of mobility,” says Mr Ojeda. 


“They offer high capacity from a small footprint. Extremely clean operations result in an excellent working environment and no loss of material. Maintenance costs are low, while the continuous nature of screw-type unloading coupled with the double bellows system ensures excellent through-the-ship performance.


The second order is for a 10,000S road-mobile unloader going to an undisclosed customer, in India at the end of this month.
