This Samson® Material Feeder receives bulk fertilizers and grain direct from 45 tonne tipping trucks and discharges onto an ongoing SAMSON Shiploader at a peak output rate of 625 m³ per hour. It complements the existing SAMSON Shiploader with twin Samson® Feeders which has been active at the Port of Sillamae, Estonia, since 2015 plus another SAMSON Shiploader supplied a few years earlier.

The mobile Samson® Feeder includes a wide rubber belted apron design unit mounted on a steel structure and supported by double apron bars located at every pitch of the conveyor chain. To accommodate a variety of trucks and loaders the entry design includes a wide flared entry section thus increasing the volume of the feeder entry and reducing vehicle alignment time.

As fertilizers and grain are free-flowing materials this material feeder is fitted with a cross-cleat belt to stop material roll-back during transfer. The discharge chute and all possible hose ends, couplings and bolting are in stainless steel to prevent against corrosion and provide longevity when handling fertilizers.

This Samson® Feeder is wheel mounted and towable using the access ramps. For ship loading the unit can be positioned ata 180° arc around the Shiploader reception hopper ensuring flexibility considering positioning when loading and/or any quay or access restrictions.
