Boost for Townsville loading fleet
The Rotabox is a purpose-built rotating frame used for tipping bulk containerised products.
“One of the key aspects of the Rotabox is its ability to reduce fugitive dust during bulk loading operations,” NSS commercial manager Mitchell Smith said.
“This is achieved through the ability of the unit to be lowered deep into the vessel’s hold whilst remaining completely sealed prior to tipping.”
By reducing the distance the product falls and tipping with a gentle motion, this method limits the air/dust displaced, while ensuring unsettled particles are confined within the vessel’s hold.
“Used in conjunction with NSS’s Enviromist system, the Rotabox bulk loading operations achieve the highest environmental compliance,” Mr Smith said.
The delivery last week of its new Mark V Qube Rotabox gives NSS the ability to load multiple vessels simultaneously.
