Mobile Discharge Units are tilting chassis semi-trailers that can tilt a marine shipping container.
Mobile Discharge Units deliver the container to the site, and tilt it to discharge the bulk content by gravity. On site, other existing mobile or stationary equipment receives and conveys such bulk contents to the silo through means typically consisting of a Rotary Valve + Blower. A cooler is a good add-on to preserve the integrity of the product.
Self-Discharging Units (SDUs) are tilting chassis semi-trailers that can autonomously tilt and discharge the bulk contents of a 20′, 30′ or 40′ container into the recipient’s silo.
It enables intermodal shipping of bulk commodities into regular containers instead of using costly dedicated bulk trucks that have an empty back-haul.
A tilting tractor truck consists of a regular truck tractor that has been retrofitted on its back end with a hydraulic tilting system to lift any truck trailer (20′, 40′, 53′, etc.) attached to the truck tractor.
Basically, it turns any existing tractor truck into a tilting tractor.
