Continuous Ship Unloader
The Continuous Ship Unloader (CSU) facilitates a homogeneous and dust-free material flow. Frigate’s bucket chain type continuous ship unloaders (CSU) are designed in order to guarantee:
- Maximum operating safety
- Easy manoeuvring
- Reduction of maintenance
- Wear reduction
- Maximum components standardisation
- Minimization of dust and noise pollution Particular attention is given to solve the operative problems relating to the digging arm inside the hold of the ship.
In order to obtain the widest working range, inside the hold, the lower part of the bucket elevator is designed so as to operate with different length and configurations. These devices guarantee a high degree of safety for the ship unloader and allow to minimise the use of auxiliary machines for the final cleaning of the hold.
Through the co-ordinated movement of dedicated hydraulic cylinders, the lower arm can modify its geometrical configuration so as to obtain the best bucket filling and to reach the walls in order to remove the residual material.
