BULK LOADING

Gulf Winds has invested in specialized equipment for the handling of aggregates including sands, guar gum and proppants. Using a custom high-capacity portable high-incline conveyor system, Gulf Winds is able to transload product moving in supersacks into pneumatic trucks and/or hopper cars for distribution to well sites in our region and around the country.

Integrated scales measure each bag as it is loaded into the pneumatic hopper to ensure accurate product distribution weight totals.

Benefits

By weighing the product in this way, we can notify the customer of weight variances which is a common issue for customers on manufactures not shipping full amount of product, allowing them to go back to their shipper for discounts.
