Ship Loaders

A comprehensive list of companies involved in the manufacture and supply of Ship Loaders.

A shiploader is a machine used for continuously loading bulk solid materials such as aggregate, iron ore and coal onto ships or barges. These machines are usually located in wharves, ports and jetties to facilitate bulk material exportation. Generally shiploaders are engineered to suit specific project requirements. Those requirements often include: wharf/port design, material characteristics, loading capacity, vessel type, local law, and budgetary limitations.

A shiploader mainly consists of a feed hopper, central column, an extendable arm or boom, a belt conveyor extending out of the boom structure, a slewing mechanism, and a loading chute to transfer product from the source conveyor or feeder. The boom can move front and back, up and down by separate drives so that it can fill the whole breadth of the ship hold and adapt to the ships increasing draught while it is loaded.
