DSI Mobile Snake Sandwich High Angle Conveyor
Available from Dos Santos International
Australia’s first Snake Ship Loader will elevate a variety of high value ores from trucks to ship. The data table below summarizes the design parameters while the figure depicts the arrangement. Materials for export are trucked to the dock and dumped onto a special trap loader type feeder. The ore is fed continuously and uniformly onto the mobile snake’s receiving chute. The Snake Ship Loader elevates the bulk over the ship’s deck to the hatch where it is discharged into the ship’s hold. At the Snake’s discharge, a special telescoping chute, with rotating, pivoting spoon, facilitates even and complete filling of the holds.
The mobile Snake is carried on a tripod of twin motorized rubber tires. Each set of twin tires is mounted at a vertical kingpin and can rotate 360 degrees about that vertical axis. Thus, without repositioning, the Snake can set up to travel in any direction. With the tail tires fixed, the front tires can be oriented and traveled for a slewing motion.
