Car Unloading Bulk Handling Conveyor
Load and unload chemicals and bulk solids, such as coal, sand, and grain into or from trucks, tank cars, or ships using material moving equipment, such as the Series CU (car unloader) conveyor. It is the answer for unloading bulk materials such as beans, grains, sand and fertilizer from controlled-opening hopper-bottomed railcars and trailers. Rapat’s Series CU is built for rugged use, handling up to 90 tons of material per hour on the 24" wide belt, and 120 tons of material per hour on the 30" wide belt. The Series CU conveyor is equipped with a wheeled undercarriage, located at the conveyor's balance point for convenient one person positioning. Initially designed for truck and railcar unloading, the Series CU conveyor has been used for unloading hopper-bottom tanks, for receiving product from low clearance conveyors and load out augers, and anywhere products require an efficient, gentle transfer of material. The Series CU conveyor features heavy duty construction and common-sense design, reducing down-time and increasing your bottom line. Designed for continuous operation, a belt conveyor can be used in a wide range of capacities and distances, and its length can be a few meters or tens of kilometers. Bulk transfer works well on belt conveyors. Engineers are available at Thomas Conveyor to help determine if the Rapat’s Series CU conveyor is the correct conveyor for your bulk handling application.
