Recently Coperion was awarded a contract for the installation of a comprehensive container loading system for polyolefin pellets. This system is hallmarked by its simple operation and high loading capacity. Containers are filled at eight loading stations with a capacity of up to 40 t/h within a maximum loading time of 25 minutes. In this case the Fluidload pneumatic conveying method is used for loading. Two containers are always positioned directly next to one another. Four of the eight containers are filled while the other four containers are being prepared for the loading procedure.
The system is extremely easy to operate from four operating platforms suspended on rails that can be moved electronically. When one container has been filled, the operator standing on the platform travels approximately five meters to the adjacent container.
With this loading system it is possible to fill 20 ft., 40 ft. and high cube containers from the rear, with the container remaining on the trailer during the entire operation. The control for this intelligent loading system was also designed by Coperion.
Coperion supplies two different technologies for unloading containers:
