The PEBCO® Batch Loading System pre-weighs material before loading it into the truck or moving railcar. This process provides loading accuracies of +/- 0.1% helping to reduce back-charges and fines from the carrier. Charge gates control the flow of material from the silo or surge bin into the Weigh Bin, which is monitored by load cells. A discharge slide gate and rectangular telescoping chute control the discharge of material into the railcar. Optical sensors allow the control system to adjust open and close positions to insure proper distribution of the product front to rear. This minimizes differential weights between axles as both differential and gross weight error can result in fines from transportation companies.
PEBCO® proudly designs both the hydraulic and controls systems that drive each of these unique loading solutions.
