Rail Mounted Barge Loader - loading grain at 250 TPH


The barge loader is fed from an overhead conveyor system with fixed discharge points. This system is fed directly from the grain silos onto the overhead conveyor.  The telescopic barge loader receives grain from these fixed points, where it then loads 3,000 - 5,000 DWT barges at throughputs up to 250 TPH.
