TOREX ZH Open Truck Loading Bellows

Truck Loading bellowsZH Open Truck Loading ChuteThe TOREX ZH Open Truck telescopic loading bellows model has been developed to provide a dust free chute to discharge dry, dusty bulk solids into open trucks or lorries.

The ZH Loading Bellows are used for efficient, dust-controlled discharging of dry, dusty bulk solids. This type of loading spout is provided with inner cones to contain the flow of material and an outer bellows to contain and channel the dust for removal to a centralised dust collector. The stroke of the bellows comes in a range of sizes to suit almost any truck size, silo height or other site variable.

Firstly the Loading Bellows are lowered from their retracted position down to the truck bed. As soon as the bellows outlet touches the truck bed, a slack cable switch mounted outside the transmission box stops lowering of the bellows. A limit switch inside the transmission box stops both full extension and contraction of the bellows. Material loading starts by opening the silo outlet valve to flow through the chute, retracting it as the product pile fills under the head of the bellows.
Once the bellows is fully retracted, the cable limit switch inside the transmission box stops operating.

  • ZH Standard inlet diameter of 300mm (12 inch) or ZK High capacity diameter of 400mm (16 inch).
  • ZH Standard throughput capacity up 250m³ / hr (147 CFM) and ZK high throughput capacity up 440m³ / hr (260 CFM).

TOREX ZG Tanker Loading Bellows

ZG Tanker Truck Loading SpoutsTorex Loading BellowsThe TOREX ZG Tanker Truck telescopic loading bellows range has been developed to provide a dust free spout which discharges dry, dusty bulk solids into tanker trucks, isotainers and convair trucks.

The ZG Loading Bellows are used for efficient, dust-controlled discharging of dry, dusty bulk solids. The loading spout is provided with inner tapered cones to contain the flow of material and an outer double bellows to provide for the dust path. A solid connection to a centralised filter unit ensures dust-free operation. The stroke of the bellows comes in a range of sizes to suit almost any tanker size, silo height or other site variable.

At the lower end of the Loading Bellows, a SINT engineering polymer-coated cone with special sealing properties is provided for connection to the tanker.

ZA Loading Chute with Integrated Dust Collector for TankersZA Loading Bellows with Integrated Dust Collector

The Bellojet ZA Tanker Truck telescopic loading bellows with integrated Dust Collector model is ideal for providing a dust free spout to discharge dry, dusty bulk solids into tankers.

The Bellojet ZA Loading Bellows are used for efficient, dust-controlled discharging of dry, dusty bulk solids. This type of loading spout is provided with inner cones to taper the flow of material and an outer bellows to contain and channel the dust up into its integrated dust collector. The stroke of the bellows comes in a range of sizes to suit almost any truck size, silo height or other site variable.

At the lower end of the Loading Bellows, a SINT engineering polymer-coated cone with special sealing properties is provided for connection to the tanker.

Firstly the Loading Bellows are lowered from their retracted position down to the tanker inlet. As soon as the outlet cone settles on the inlet spout of the tanker, a slack cable switch mounted outside the transmission box stops lowering of the bellows. A limit switch inside the transmission box stops both full extension and contraction of the bellows. Material loading starts by opening the silo outlet valve to flow through the chute, retracting it as the product pile fills under the head of the bellows.

During filling of the truck the integrated dust collector fan continuously draws dust through the external bellows into the filter cartridges in the upper section of the unit. Contraction of the bellows back to the standby position starts after a delay of approximately ten seconds in order to allow the filter to evacuate the remaining dust. The preset shut down pulse jet cleaning cycle runs for another ten minutes after the bellows are fully retracted, and the dust then is contained by the bellows closure cone.
