TITLE
Tanker loading spout
ARTICLE
A problem arose on site when a customer required a product to be delivered into a tanker. The loading conveyor was designed for tipper wagons and quarry dumpers and in order to load the tanker, a rubber funnel had to be carried on to the top of the tanker and inserted into the hatch.This required manual handling and brought about the risks associated with working at height.

To avoid these issues a fitter has devised a chute, suspended on wheels, that can be moved in and out of position from ground level, removing the need for manual handling and working at height.
