Bedeschi unloader for handling soya

Bedeschi has introduced a rail-mounted continuous mechanical ship-unloader for handling soya beans. The Italian company said it has just secured an order in Italy for its newly designed CSU 800/29.5 unloader.

With a rated capacity of 800 tph and capable of unloading ships up to Panamax size, the new machine will be built and tested in Bedeschi’s Italian workshop, which the firm said offers “the latest technology, tools and facilities for the perfect machining and testing of special items”.


The unloading technology is based on the proven chain elevator technology, which facilitates lower power consumption, careful handling of the material, compliance with stringent environmental regulations, and simple and inexpensive maintenance, said Bedeschi.


The chain elevator features a hydraulic “kick-in, kickout” system, designed to optimise the coverage of the hold volume, and increase total unloading efficiency. Considering the abrasive nature of the cargo handled, said Bedeschi, the chain elevator, boom chain conveyor and chain conveyor connecting to quayside belt conveyor have been specifically designed to prevent wearing, using extra-hard special steel and easy-to-replace wearing plates.
