Heyl & Patterson‘s Continuous Barge Unloader (CBU) is designed to unload coal, lime, limestone, petroleum coke, iron ore, wood chips, grain, etc. from barges at up to 5,000 tons per hour.
Extremely efficient, this machine maintains a much higher average offloading rate than other types of barge unloaders, while horsepower requirements are much less than pneumatic systems. Very easy to operate, the CBU does not degrade fragile products and can be installed quickly due to its modular construction. Dust collection units are also available.
