New quadruple rail car dumpers in operation at Caofeidian coal terminal in China

Technology from thyssenkrupp increases efficiency in coal handling The coal terminal at the port of Caofeidian is a major hub for supplying the power plants in the south of China. Coal from the mines in the north of the country is brought by train to the port for onward shipping. In the past few years thyssenkrupp has supplied Caofeidian with eight ship loaders and two quadruple rail car dumper stations for speedy unloading. Each of these two new dumper stations can unload four 80-ton capacity coal cars at a time. The four cars are positioned in the dumper so that they rotate around their coupling axis and at the same time discharge their loads into the silo below. The positioning of the full train and emptying of the next four cars is controlled by a positioner (indexer) to ensure fast and reliable unloading. The positioner travels parallel to the track and indexes the entire train.... more
