TITLE
Remote discharge tripper activation
ARTICLE
Modifications have been made to the conveyor discharge tripper, which has made the process of discharging materials safer.

A remote control system has been installed so that the tripper can now be positioned by the loading shovel operator, from the safety of the cab.

This means employees no longer need to walk up to the tripper to manually operate its controls, which posed an access hazard during hours of darkness.

It has also freed up one employee who used to stand in the tripper whilst discharging trains.
