The Vortex loading spout is engineered to handle dry bulk solids like powders, pellets, and granules. Ideal for loading rail cars, trucks, tankers, barges, and ships, it can be used as an open or enclosed loading chute, and is designed with a 4-cable lifting system. Vortex’s 4-cable hoist drive system incorporates two CNC-precision machined pulleys. The three-disc design allows two cables for each pulley to reduce cable wear and extend the service life of the loading spout. The drive motor is center-mounted protecting it from the outside elements. Due to the design of the lifting system, a 10-year warranty on the lifting cables is included. For dust-free applications, Vortex offers a compact filtration system engineered to capture dust and reinstate it back into the vehicle load during the loading process. To get the most out of the filter's performance, Vortex added an automatic pulse-jet cleaning system and easy-to-replace polyester filter cartridges.
