Innovative Train Unloader Conveyors Delivered to SADA
Formed in 1991 to undertake contract processing and handling services for the NSW and Australian coal industry, SADA Group operates with extensive experience in every step of the process, from mining and coal preparation through to logistics and shipping.
SADA focus on innovation enables the company to deliver a trouble-free, seamless, integrated solutions on every project. At this time, the challenge was to provide a lower cost-per-tonne alternative to trucking.
Fenner Dunlop ACE was contacted and designed a low-cost train unloading station built to receive and safely transport a variety of bulk materials from directly underneath a railcar. Two identical systems operate in parallel to convey the product up 4.5m vertically from under the railcar to a location 32m away, streamlining the unloading process.
The new Train Unloader Conveyor provides a safe and cost-effective alternative to conventional unloading methods. It has a compact design and is robust enough to suit a range of material types, particle sizes and densities.
SADA recognises that the innovative design will contribute significantly to their customer's operations.
