Fyson Shiploading Conveyors
An Early Fyson Elevator
During the last few years trading, Fyson built a variety of Shiploading Conveyors, usually custom built and made to order, which were designed to load materials on board ships up to 12,500 tons. The shiploading conveyors were diesel driven with the power used to help raise and lower the main boom and were also supplied complete with a low level lorry tipping hopper which allowed road vehicles to tip directly on to the tail of the conveyor. The head section of the conveyors were usually fitted with a twin spout chute which would allow the flow of material to be directed in manageable streams to assist trimming of vehicles. The main shiploader conveyors used a 900mm wide U-form belt at a maximum operating angle of 25° and the GB feeder conveyors each had 800mm wide belts and a fixed angle of elevation.
