Sams Seafarm, located in Port Lincoln South Australia, have installed a second LongReach telescopic conveyor to assist in the loading of processed tuna into shipping containers. The telescopic conveyor, available from LongReach Telescopic Conveyors , has been fitted with stainless deck sheets, food grade belt and treated components to withstand the harsh environment.
The LongReach telescopic conveyors extend 12m from a 7.0m base. The LongReach telescopic conveyors reach the rear of the 40’ container providing a safer method to load a frozen tuna. Previously, operators were required to walk the full length of the container carrying the frozen fish which weigh up to 80kg each. The installation of the second conveyor was a direct result from the success of the first conveyor installed in July 2007.
