Continuous Barge Unloaders
The Heyl & Patterson Continuous Barge Unloader (CBU) is designed to unload materials such as coal, lime, limestone, petroleum coke, iron ore, wood chips and grain from barges at free digging rates of up to 5,000 tons per hour. Extremely efficient, this machine maintains a much higher average offloading rate than other types of barge unloaders, while horsepower requirements are much less than pneumatic systems. Very easy to operate, the CBU does not degrade fragile products and can be installed quickly due to its modular construction. Dust collection units are also available.
Grab Bucket Barge Unloaders
Often referred to as “The Workhorse of the Rivers,” Heyl & Patterson’s Grab Bucket Barge Unloader is field proven to offer maximum capacity with free digging rates of up to 1,500 tons per hour. Environmentally sound, the stationary or traveling style units can accommodate dust suppression or collection systems, depending on your site requirements, and can also be used in complement with barge hauls.
