Loading spout for tank trucks or rail cars

The loading spout for tank trucks is made of 2 ducts: a central one to transfer the product from the silo to the truck and an external one to collect dust emissions. According to the applications the central duct could be different: flexible duct, mild steel cones or telescopic tubes.

The lower part of the loading spout will go up progressively as required, so as to properly load the product into an open truck or directly on the ground (as required by the application).

A command and control cabinet ensures an automatic loading that complies with normal security requirements ie : motor overheating, automatic lifting etc
