Cleveland Cascades Alumina Loading Chute Installed & Commissioned in India

Cleveland Cascades Engineers have recently supported with the installation and commissioning of a Cascade Chute Loading Alumina located in Vishakhapatnam, India.

The Alumina loading chute is 18 meters in length at extension and can retract to approximately 7 meters for stowing. The chute’s design is supplied with a pivoting type head chute in order to work in conjunction with a luffing boom.

The chute is one of our 1700 size systems and has the capacity to load up to 3,000 cubic meters of Alumina per hour from a belt fed conveyor system. The head chute, deflectors and cones are lined with 4mm ceramic tiles for abrasion resistance.

The cascade chute is fitted with a comprehensive suite of electrical components for safe operation and control, providing signalling for any potential blockages. All of the functions provide feedback to the control system for the ship loader with safety limits being interlocked with the conveyor system feeding the chute.

The chute can be seen in the gallery and video’s below loading during the recently completed commissioning works.
