The constantly increasing movement and shipment of powdery and granular bulk materials in tank-type and container vehicles requires an on-going need for dust-free loading. Modern loading systems are keyed to very short loading periods, i.e., high loading outputs. Systems having loading outputs of 300-400 cubic meters per hour are in use. For a tank-type transporter with a 20 cu.m. capacity, this would correspond to a theoretical loading period of about four minutes. Because of shortages of personnel, the loading system is frequently arranged for operation by the equipment driver. Various methods are available for loading bulk materials into tank trucks, freight cars and ships.
