Siwertell strengthens cement operations with repeat road-mobile unloader order
21 September 2017
Siwertell, part of Cargotec, has received a repeat order from a company based in the Middle East region for a second 10 000 S Next Generation road-mobile unloader. The unit has been ordered in response to an expansion in white and grey cement operations and will support the company's existing road-mobile unloader. The order was booked in Cargotec's second quarter 2017 order intake.
The trailer-based, diesel-powered Siwertell 10 000 S Next Generation unit is fitted with dust filters and a double bellows discharge system, which allows for a rated unloading capacity of 300t/h; an increase in through-ship capacity of up to 30 percent compared to a single loading bellows system.
"In the cement bulk handling business Siwertell stands for reliability and therefore we believe that by choosing our units, the customer chooses the best tool in the business," says Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Siwertell Mobile Unloaders.
Siwertell's road-mobile unloaders are based on unique screw conveyor technology with totally-enclosed conveying lines for environmentally-friendly and cost-efficient operations. The unique screw conveying system ensures continuous high capacity operations and reduced unloading times. Siwertell's unloaders also achieve cost efficiency, consuming just 0.18 litres fuel/tonne during an average cement handling operation.
Available in three models - 5 000 S, 10 000 S and 15 000 S - the unloaders were originally developed to handle cement, though they can comfortably handle a wide variety of dry bulk materials including ¬alumina, sulphur, grain, feedstuff, biomass and fertilisers.
