JLW Solutions build on the relationship with McGraths. Forfilling the challenge set to the team to provide a handling system for a difficult flour product that they deliver by ship to support the demand in Scotland.
Stripped back to the basics and removal of unnecessary equipment gave us a simple raw machine to build off. Engine service and some minor engine repairs as well as a few new hydraulic hoses saw us ready to running function tests.
A massive hopper extension was designed to suit JST’s bulk handling grabs allowing the grab to empty on product inside the hopper reducing dust at this point. We also fitted an adjustable rate control flap on the hopper to allow the operator to easily control the output rate which changes with each product.
Conical funnel is fitted to the end of the conveyor, on hinges so it can be stored away if not required but with the intention of dust reduction, controlling the product coming off the conveyor, as well as making the machine more versatile and able to load bulk tankers Lorrys.
