Transloading: Sometimes a simple solution is best

Whether you are pursuing the refined fuels market in Mexico or moving NGLs in Texas, you need to find a safe Transloading solution that can move the required volume of product, while still making the economics work.

Many of our customers are transloading product across the U.S. and Mexico markets and initially were looking for a full-scale Transloader. Some wanted the Transloader to have its own on-board diesel generator.

Yet as they tried to negotiate with their clients for the constantly shifting volume commitments while trying to control and minimize the asset side of the cost structure, they could not get the economics to work.


The economic balance of transloading systems.

This spring a client came to S&S and asked if we could find a solution that would help meet the demand and economic challenges. We determined the best way to assist was to come up with a simpler transloader cart solution while our clients continued to pursue volume commitments and market demand. This simpler transloader cart design can still move the required volume using a 4” Blackmer pump that provides up to 400 GPM.

The measurement and automation requirements are handled by a Khrone Optimass Coriolis Meter  and an FMC Microload Controller.  Safety components include Newson Gale Grounding units , and an eStop. All of which is added to the transloader with automation and testing done in our UL508A certified panel shop.
