Dyna-Flo UHMW Cargo Ship Liners, by Mentor Dynamics, are used extensively in self-unloading vessels and barges where material flow is essential to maintaining high productivity. To maintain their high productivity, self-unloading vessels must maintain gravity induced material flow when unloading cargo. Mentor Dynamics polymer cargo ship liners have a coefficient of friction that is 65% lower than that of stainless steel. This low friction greatly facilitates the unloading of bulk solid cargo even when they are wet or sticky. Dyna-Flo UHMW Polyethylene barge liners have been used successfully with a variety of cargoes including: gypsum, coal and limestone among others. Dyna-Flo UHMWPE liners’ low coefficient of friction help gravity work better!
Mentor Dynamics pioneered the use of polymer UHMW liners in the ship market, and has maintained its position as the leading provider of UHMW cargo ship liners to the worldwide marine industry.
Case Study – 30% Capacity Gain
A ship carrying coal had nearly 30% of its cargo space displaced by hardened coal. The shipping company tried a range of conventional approaches and even considered the use of explosives to break the hardened coal. After installing a Mentor Dynamics’ Dyna-Flo UHMW liner, the ship operated at it’s designed carrying capacity, an increase of 12,000 tons per trip. The enhanced productivity provided a rapid financial payback.
Innovative solutions demand continuing commitment to insure optimum performance. Mentor Dynamics representatives will continue to monitor your project to be sure that it meets your expectations.
