Fabrication of a Prototype of Telescopic Boom Radial Ship Loader (TBRSL)
Pages : 872-879
Loading of bulk material like iron ore, coal, fertilizer, grains into ships for transportation by sea is done by ship loaders. Ship loaders are very common sight in ports and jetties from where bulk materials are exported. It mainly consists of an extendable boom, a belt conveyor and a mobile structure to support the boom. It usually mounted on rails and sometimes on tires and can move in order to be able to reach the whole length of the ship and also equipped with a boom which can move up and down so that it can fill all the corners of the ship hatches. Ship loaders are built in capacities from 10 to 15000 TPH (tones per hour).
