Two more ship unloaders for LafargeHolcim
After we build two pneumatic ship unloaders for LafargeHolcim USA in 2016, we made another two ship unloaders for this company in 2017. These ship unloaders are designed to discharge river barges with a size of 1500 dwt at the terminal in Bettendorf and Houston.
The units will be able to convey the unloaded cement pneumatically to the storages silos, which are situated adjacent to the docks through a pipeline with an approximate length of 820 feet for the Bettendorf terminal and 600 feet for the Houston terminal. The design capacity for the Bettendorf terminal is 225 tons per hour and 350 tons per hour for the Houston terminal.
