Unloads bulk cement from bottom hatches of cement hopper cars (in case it is possible to install an intermediate discharging bin under rails) and feeds it to railroad cement storages and cement trucks.
The unit consists of a receiving bin (into which cement is unloaded), a feeder which transports cement from the receiving bin to a pneumatic screw hoist (transports cement from a pneumatic hoist chamber via a manifold to a cement storage or a loading bin) with the air processing system (moisture and oil separators, pressure reducing valves etc.), a remote control station.
The pneumatic screw hoist SB-245 (versions -01 and -03 only. Version -02 is equipped with a screw feeder) enables feeding cement to railroad cement storages or service bins of a concrete-mixing plant, located within a 50 m horizontally from a hopper car unloading point at a maximum lifting height of 35 m.
