Mr. Harold A. (Tony) Walker, CEO/President of PICOR was recently awarded Best Paper Award at the Annual Geominetech Symposium ENTS - Conference held in Bhubaneswar, India, May 11th- 12th, 2010.  Walker's paper titled, Modern Bulk Material Loading, Storage and Reclaim Methods included an introduction to his patented  train and truck Precision Loading Systems.  PICOR has developed two types of Truck Precision Loading Systems. One type is a batch system which weighs the amount of material loaded into trucks to within 0.1% accuracy.  The other type incorporates a truck scale under a truck loading bin and weighs the amount of material loaded into trucks to within 0.25%.  Due to the overloading of railcars or in some cases railcars that are not loaded to capacity Mr. Walker introduced his patented Train Precision Loading Systems technology. Walker explained, "A properly designed Train Precision Loading System will load trains at rates exceeding 15,000 TPH and load each railcar to within 0.5% of its design gross weight."   Mr. Walker's latest technology, The Walker Reclaimer, was also discussed.  The Walker Reclaimer combines the attributes of the stockpile over a reclaim tunnel and the vertical storage silo.  Since the Walker Reclaimer is an enclosed system the stored material is protected from the environment and the environment is protected from the material.  Walker concluded, "this technology was developed to provide the most economical method to load trucks and trains and to reclaim a wide range of bulk materials from stockpiles, ships, and barges, while protecting the material and the environment."     {...} more

International Coal Prep 2010

April 26, 2010

PICOR attended the International Coal Prep 2010 conference held in Lexington, Kentucky USA on April 26-29, 2010.  PICOR was an Exhibtor at this conference, as well as, a Premier Sponsor. PICOR took this opportunity to dicuss their patented technology including Truck and Train Precision Loading Systems and their lastest technology, The Walker Reclaimer(patent pending).  This system can be used to reclaim bulk materials from large, circular, domed structures allowing a large amount of material to be stored and reclaimed in a very limited area.  Some very exciting uses of the Walker Reclaimer are in the design of self unloading barges and ships.  By installing a Walker Reclaimer in each hold of a ship and providing a collecting conveyor under the discharge openings, a self unloading ship of simple design, low cost, and maintenance is achieved.  For existing bulk carriers, it would be economical to install the Walker Reclaimer and increase the annual capacity of the vessel to up to twenty percent.  Installing the Walker Reclaimer system in barges and putting a receiving hopper on the stern of each barge, it is possible to unload a raft of barges without breaking the raft. {...} more

PICOR awarded Petroleum Coke Truck Precision Loading System for The Wood River Refinery

April 10, 2008

The Wood River Petroleum Coke Truck Precision Loading System™ consists of a 1,000 ton capacity surge bin of cylindrical design with a conical hopper, a weigh bin of 30 ton capacity of cylindrical design with a conical hopper, a PICOR Truck Loading Chute, PICOR flow control gates to make the system operable. Support steel, weighing system, weighing system enclosures, advanced design hydraulic system with proportional control valves to operate the gates and loading chute, and all hardware required to operate and control the system were supplied by PICOR.  From the top of the surge bin to the truck loading chute, the entire system is sealed. Petroleum coke is fed to the Precision Loading System™ by a belt conveyor with a discharge arrangement designed to allow the future installation of a transfer conveyor to a planned adjacent Truck Precision Loading System™. As petromeum coke is discharged into the 1,000 ton surge bin, displaced air is routed through a bin vent that prevents coke dust discharge into the atmosphere. The amount of material in the surge bin is monitored by strain gages mounted in the six main surge bin support columns. When a truck is to be loaded, it is first directed to a tare scale. The truck tare weight is subtracted from the allowable gross weight to obtain the net weight of coke to be batched for that truck. When the truck arrives at the Truck Precision Loading System™, the exact amount of material to be loaded will be batched and waiting. The truck will pull into position and, when directed by the truck driver, the weigh bin discharge gate will open loading the truck. When the weigh bin is empty, the discharge gate will close and the truck will be instructed to leave. Truck loading information will be delivered to the refineries data network. {...} more
