Svendborg BSFA 635 Brakes with SOBO® iQ for Barge Unloading Conveyor Winch

A global leader in grain origination, shipping and processing needed to upgrade the braking system on a bucket conveyor winch at its large grain elevator facility located near New Orleans, LA. The 10 ft. long conveyor is used to unload grain barges that travel down the Mississippi River. The braking system controls the winch, located on the top of a gantry, that raises and lowers the conveyor as it empties the barges positioned below. The old braking system had reached the end of its useful life and no longer functioned properly in the hot, corrosive salt water conditions near the Gulf of Mexico.
