Portserv International Ltd.
Mobile Bagging Unit:
Portserv International have over 40 mobile
bagging plants and as such is the largest single operator in the world. All
units are equipped with two weighing and stitching lines. Each line is capable
of a maximum output of 20 x 50 kg bags per minute, giving a combined potential
of 40 x 50 kg bags per minute. This equates to an hourly throughput of 120
tonnes. The units can operate in the port alongside the bulk carrier or be
located adjacent to stockpiled materials being reclaimed.
Hydraulic grabs are used to load the mobile units
directly from the vessel. A large number are available in various capacities
ranging from 2.5 to 5 tonnes capacity. They are hand trip and self touch
opening, therefore accommodating all operational requirements. Special grab
loading hoppers designed for purpose are mounted on top of the upper container
to increase capacity and provide a much larger target area for the crane driver
/ grab operator.
