The FLSmidth Loading Spout uses a solidly constructed inlet neck and thimble with an integral dust vent connection. Three sections of internal telescopic steel pipe are swivel mounted within the thimble. The telescopic tubing is housed within the external 24-inch (610 mm) diameter ribbed spring-flex duct. The discharge flange connection is lined with a rubber gasket to assure positive surface contact on 20-inch (508 mm) diameter hatches.

Movement is controlled with a motor-operated hoist using wire rope cable. The telescopic spout retracts to a length of 4’ 7-11/16” (1422 mm) and extends a distance of 9’ 3-11/16” (2845 mm) from the inlet connection. Safety chain is provided to prevent over-extension.

N/A FLSmidth telescopic loading spout


N/A The FLSmidth telescopic LoadingSpout is designed for discharging relatively dry materials from over-head storage bins to a bulk trailer or railcar. This flexible, retractable spout directs the flow of materials within a restricted area and helps reduce dust or product loss. Discharge from the storage bin may be made through a direct discharge or controlled rate feeder. An FLSmidth rotary cut-off valve (14” x 14”) (350 mm x 350 mm) or similar valve or feeder is recommended. The telescopic loading spout is ruggedly constructed for repeated use.
