NORTH PRAIRIE, WI - DYNATEK recently released a new articulated loader design that can dramatically improve the efficiency with which 55 meter X 16 meter, 16-hatch hopper barges can be loaded with dry solids.
Using a traditional barge loading system, it is common for the loading process to require as many as (9) barge position changes and a tug-based, 180 degree barge rotation to access all infeed hatches and fully load the barge.
All of the position changes and time that can be spent waiting for a tug to arrive and rotate the barge can easily reduce loading rates to less than one barge per day.
DYNATEK’s solution was to design an articulated dual –arm, loading system that featured a 12.2 meter reach radius and a rotational range of up to 330 degrees.
Using this loading system configuration, a 55 X 16 meter, 16 hatch hopper barge can be fully loaded without the use of a tug at all and with only two winch-based position changes.
At a loading rate of 708 cubic meters per hour, a barge can be loaded in 7 hours VS a day or more.
Fewer barge position changes and shorter loading times significantly reduce loading costs and positively impacts loading safety.
