Dynatek saw what it hopes will be the first of many articulated EconoLoader loading conveyors head for Europe this week. This one will be used to load DDGS at a new ethanol plant that’s close to completion just south of Budapest, Hungary.
DDGS loading is an application Dynatek knows well because of how often its EconoLoaders have been chosen for truck and railcar loading by U.S. ethanol plant designers, builders, and owners.
“What’s most rewarding is being told this installation is a direct result of how well Dynatekloaders have performed for DDGS loading her in the U.S.,” said Gary Kuehneman, director of sales and marketing. “More than one plant maintenance manager has said, ‘I wish the rest of the plant was as reliable as the loader’.”
Operationally, two conveying arms with powered pivot joints allow the loader to extend up to 30 ft and rotate up to 330 degrees. This makes it easy to precisely position the loader discharge over each section or inlet hatch of the truck or railcar, without moving the vehicle. Pendant controls are then used to position the load-out spout and start the conveying process. 15,000 bushels/hr loading rates are typical for DDGS but rates as high as 25,000 bushels/hr are possible.
DynatekLoading Systems, a division of D&D Products, designs and builds articulated truck-, railcar-, and barge-loading systems based on auger, belt, drag, and air-slide conveyor technologies. DynatekEconoLoader Systems are currently being used throughout North America to load materials like DDGS, fly ash, alumina, soy meal, plastic pellets, catalysts, and calcium carbonate at rates up to 25,000 cu ft/hr.DYNATEK Loading Systems
