Bulk Loading Chute

Loading Chutes

Loading chutes or tanker loading chutes are designed to convey free-falling dry bulk products, mainly aggregate, agricultural and industrial raw materials, to aid dust-free transfer from silo to tankers, trucks and rail containers on site.

Our loading chutes are durable, flexible, and manufactured from high-quality PVC-coated polyester fabric. This material is resistant to UV rays, ensuring it maintains its integrity over time. Steel hoops keep the chutes open during use, preventing any obstruction of product flow. Furthermore, the chute is retractable after loading without causing any damage or wear.

We can build into the chute steel housings internally or externally to connect to your existing steel cones or eyelet guides for retracting wires.

We can also incorporate anti-static wires along the length of the chutes to be connected on-site for hazardous loading areas.

What are the benefits of using Flexible Connections Loading Chutes?

The benefits of using our tanker loading chutes are that they give you adjustability on length depending on the size of the tanker being loaded, containing dust and spillages, and with the options of multiple material choices, material compatibility for the media is catered to.

Alternatively, we can manufacture your loading chute from polyurethane. Polyurethane has excellent abrasion qualities, is UV Stable, can be ATEX rated, and our standard material is transparent; this gives the benefit of seeing your free-falling product transfer and react quicker to any blockages. Our polyurethane connectors will be more appropriate if these chutes are unsuitable for your application. CLICK HERE.

If you have an aggressive media product flow, we can accommodate other suitable materials where our standard PVC polyester or Polyurethane material may not be compatible.
