Ship Throwers and Trimmers

We go the distance!

Ship trimmers and throwers are designed to provide fast and high speed throw for maximum loading and stacking of bulk materials. Thrower-type trimmers transport bulk materials more evenly to occupy the space surrounding the hatch in the ships hold

  • Constructed of abrasive resistant liners, sand grade rubber belt, reinforced discs and triple seal bearing with covers.
  • Handles abrasive and wet materials as well as dry bulk materials.
  • Fast with high speed streams

  • Increased storage range up to ten times.
  • Increased loading capabilities.
  • Durable and dependable.


Ship trimmers and throwers are the ideal method for uniform loading into a ship’s hold or increasing your stockpile capabilities with their short endless belt that operates over two pulleys driven at high speed.  A pair of idler discs form a conveying arc.  A chute directs material onto the belt at the rear slope and material travels around the short conveying arc pressed against the belt by centrifugal force.  Material leaves the belt as a high speed stream.  Their swivel joint allows them to pivot and cover a large loading or stockpiling area.

Portal centrifugal-action bulk material pilers are also available which handle materials brought to one point that can be stockpiled in a wide range of heights and distances.  Portable pilers eliminate the need for overhead conveyor structures.  Storage piles can be created indoors or outdoors with one compact, portable machine.
