PNEUMATIC VESSEL UNLOADERS - AN ERA OR DEVELOPMENT

The largest single field of application for pneumatic equipment has traditionally been in the grain and aluminium trades. The past decade has seen a sharp rise in the volume of bulk commodities transported by sea - the seaborn grain trade alone has risen from 82m tons in 1965 to 143m tons in 1977. This growth in trade combined with improved technology has undoubtedly stimulated the development of pneumatic equipment used to discharge ocean-going vessels and barges. The article describes pneumatic equipment developments and availability.
