Bulk Handling Cranes
Bulk handling cranes form a vital link in the distribution chain of raw materials from the producer to the consumer. The first Stothert & Pitt Bulk Handling Crane was supplied in 1927 for coal unloading duties at a London power station. Subsequently this range has evolved offering straight or double lever jibs with two or four rope grabbing.
These cranes and their associated lifting gear are purpose engineered to provide the most efficient method of handling the commodity be it scrap metal, grains and animal feed or fertilizers, coal, alumina and other mineral ore.
Kangaroo Cranes with their in-built hoppers discharge directly from the vessel onto the ground transportation system, conveyors, road or rail vehicles, and alleviating the need for costly towed or self-propelled hoppers.
Only the best control systems are installed to ensure maximum availability and productivity. Operators cabs are positioned to give optimum visibility both into the ship's holds and land side facilities.
