The Multiport id suitable for discharge of many kinds of bulk materials especially from the food sector but as well as for products from the power plant and aluminum industries. These systems are usually customized developments and adapt to the existing geometric conditions.
Unloading of all type of inland or ocean-going vessels and discharging directly onto conveyors, trucks or wagons. This happens almost dust free through the use of closed conveyor and aspiration systems.
Multiport ship unloaders have, depending on the geometry, bulk discharge capacities of up to 800 t / h based on wheat, with an energy consumption of 1.0 kW per discharged ton. They are powered either directly by low voltage or medium voltage with on-board transformers to get the corresponding voltages. If this is not possible, diesel generators can be used. Whereas such type of machines are usually equipped with their own rubber-tired chassis, which makes it possible to use the unloader at different locations in the port.
With the use of horizontal and vertical telescopic pipes a big surface can be reached within the ship’s hatches. With a so-called auxiliary winch on the boom, a small front-end loader (e.g. Bobcat) or larger chain excavator with up to 15.0 tons in weight are lifted into the ship’s hold for cleaning operation.
The picture above is showing two MULTIPORT M600 during unloading of a Panamax ship while the bulk material is further loaded onto trucks.
The Multiport ship unloader is equipped with the latest filter technology. The main filter with the special filter cleaning system has proven to be the best while simple and maintenance free. A purge air fan draws the air from the clean gas chamber of the filter, compresses the air and thus cleans the filter bags via an integrated nozzle system. Moisture condensation is prevented in the filter media and the use of a compressor is not necessary. Emission levels below 20 mg / Nm ³ are easily achieved.
The ATEX directives will be respected and all the filters are equipped with rupture discs and explosion protected safety equipment. Special explosion protection concepts can be developed and in the event of an explosion special equipment can be supplied to prevent penetration of flames in both directions.
The latest blower technology with additional equipment for sound absorption are taken into account as well as the local regulations.
