Mechanisation of the port terminal sheds

Ravenna (Italy)

Building mechanical structures, from design to on-site installation, in order to extend the lifting and transportation system of the material, in the form of bulk cereals, carried from the dock via belt conveyor or trucks for storage in the sheds in the port terminal.

Characteristics of the transportation system:

  • material fed into the hopper: cereals
  • bulk specific gravity: 0.75 t/m3
  • max particle size: 50mm
  • overhead loading angle: 10°
  • rate of extraction from the hopper: 600 t/h
  • temperature of material: ambient
  • environment: Atex 22 dust environment

Deserving of particular attention is the supply of a bucket elevator with an overall height of around 36.5m, capable of lifting 600t/h of cereal with a specific gravity of 0.75t/m3 and suitable for use in an Atex 22 dust environment.
