DYNATEK’s shuttle-type EconoLoader™ is a perfect solution for single bay loadout areas. Additionally, they can be designed to accommodate almost any loading rate as well as abnormally long railcars & trailers such as 85 – 100 foot long Super-B grain trailers.
Shuttle loaders feature a single open top belt, screw or drag conveyor configured with a bottom-side discharge port on each end. Each port is equipped with a flow control gate that can be opened or closed to eliminate spillage from carry-back. The conveyor is attached to an electrically-powered bridge crane – like trolley that rides on an I-beam mounted over the centerline of the loading bay. During loading, the operator uses a cabled or wireless push-button pendant to move the trolley left or right until the left or right discharge port is positioned over the hopper area that is to receive material. The pendant is then used to choose the direction the conveyor needs to run in order to carry material to the selected discharge port and to start the flow of material to the infeed of the shuttle loader. The operator then continues to reposition the trolley and change the conveying direction as needed until the transport vehicle has been completely loaded. A segmented flexible zipper seal on the top-side of the conveyor provides dust containment while allowing the conveyor to move freely underneath the material inlet.
