Highest flexibility, fast truck loading and dust free operation – the raw material receiving hopper InterHop guarantees all of this. 30 t of material can be unloaded in less than 30 s. Truck loading is possible as well as direct feed via belt conveyor to raw material silo. The InterHop impresses with a flexible design. The latest project for SEA-invest at the Terminal Vraquier Abidjan (TVA) supplied a tailor-made solution developed according to the client’s requirements:
Low dust emissions during bulk ship unloading progress with gantry crane/shovel
Low dust emission during truck loading or transfer with belt conveyor
Rapid loading process for trucks
High speed belt conveyor loading
Strong and long-life hopper design
Flexible hopper height in case of new hopper position
The grab feeding opening has a diameter of 9.00 m and a height feeding opening.
The inlet (grate size) is 6.50 m x 6.50 m and the height of the inlet (grate size) 15 m. The overall dimensions (with walkways) are 10.00 x 17.80 m. The hopper disposes of a capacity of 65 m3/density 1.2–1.4 kg/dm3 and its weight is approx. 215000 kg.
