TITLE
Mobile chute for concrete collection
ARTICLE
When the concrete collection point was closed off for four months during site construction works, an alternative collection point was required. A redundant station in one of the production buildings was earmarked as a temporary solution. The new location had drawbacks as the concrete would need to be delivered to the station at high levels by a travelling bucket.

The excessive drop height created a potential hazard to nearby personnel and vehicles.

It was decided that a chute would help resolve the problem but a fixed chute was still not suitable as there was a risk of personnel falling during cleaning. A purposemade mobile chute was created that not only helped the concrete flow but also allowed for safe cleaning.
