SAMSON Materials Handling has introduced the new generation STORMAJOR®in three models. STORMAJOR® 380 series is for materials with a bulk density =1 t/cu m, such as cereals, fertiliser or alternative fuels; STORMAJOR® 450 series for materials with bulk densities from 0.9 to 1.6 t/cu m, such as additives, light minerals or fertiliser; and STORMAJOR® 800 series for materials with bulk densities from 1.5 to 2.1 t/cu m, such as heavier minerals or ores, sand and gravel.
The new STORMAJOR® design is the result of decades of experience with the previous generations of these machines from SAMSON. It combines a mobile truck unloader with a movable boom. This versatile unit allows the operators of ports, goods depots and stockpiles to receive bulk materials directly from trucks, front-end loaders or other loading equipment and to load them into vessels or railway wagons. As the new STORMAJOR® is fully mobile, it is also ideal for the efficient stockpiling of bulk materials. In developing the machine, the engineers considered its suitability for dealing with the wide range of requirements in ports and terminals, as well as making it reliable and easy to maintain. The boom is attached below its centre of rotation, so that fines do not collect in the bottom of the machine. The feed section of the main chute is completely decoupled from the conveying sections, which means that if necessary, bulk materials with particularly poor flow properties can be actively shaken to make the process more efficient. The standard angle of the transfer chute walls is already an effective measure to reduce the danger of bridging when handling different materials which do not flow well.
Each version of the STORMAJOR® has two travel and power options.
A wheel-mounted STORMAJOR® will be towed, or a tracked machine will have its own drive. When moving the machine fully loaded, it can be equipped with additional outrigger support.
