K.F. Drenth Spaveyor design.
Masters thesis, Report TT.1023, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

The arguments for and against discontinuous and continuous ship unloading systems are examined. The concept behind the new Spaveyor design is explained. Finally this study leads to a prototype which answers the question: Can the grab unloader be replaced by a simple continuously working element?
