Vortex_Loading_Spout-Positioner

Vortex Loading Positioners are used in conjunction with standard volume loading spouts to facilitate and speed up the loading of open or enclosed trucks and railcars at loadout stations. They allow for the fast and accurate single-axis or double-axis placement of the loading spout, which eliminates the need to reposition vehicles once they have entered the loading station. Loading spout positioners are made out of steel and can be designed and manufactured to meet your individual project specifications to handle almost any flow rate and travel distance.

Loading spout positioners consist of two main segments: a fixed support pan and a traversing hopper. The hopper’s discharge flange is designed to directly connect to the inlet of the loading spout. Vortex positioners feature a unique sliding rail system that incorporates V-grooved rollers to maintain hopper alignment during the material flowing process. The hopper seals are easily replaceable, and the electrical control wiring is protected with a flexible cable carrier. A pre-wired handheld control pendant with push buttons is available as an option to allow the operator to manually control the positioner, which can also be controlled remotely from a central location.

1 – Fixed Support Pan
The support pan stays stationary allowing the hopper to easily slide and find its destination.
2 – Traversing Hopper
The traversing hopper connects to the spout and allows for exact positioning in conjuction with the support pan.

 

Single Direction Spout Positioner
The single-axis loading spout positioner allows the operator to move the spout in X axis (front and back) over the vehicle.
Dual Direction Spout Positioner
This option allows the operator to traverse the loading spout in X axis (front to back), as well as in Y axis (side to side).
Articulating Arm Positioners
They allow for the fast and accurate single or dual-axis placement of the loading spout, which eliminates the need to reposition vehicles once they have entered the loading station.
