Ideal for unloading incoming scrap from barges, the E-Crane Series 1500-B is a custom-built hydraulic-electric material handler designed for economy, quietness and low maintenance. A recent installation at Kinder Morgan’s SeverCorr steel mill in Columbus, Missouri, uses an E-Crane 1500-B with an 18.2 ton duty cycle capacity. It is equipped with a scrap grab, clamshell bucket and magnet for greater versatility, and includes quick-change capability to provide the most efficient method for transloading the material. The unit is also built high enough so trucks can drive under it for loading. In their Co- lumbus application, Kinder Morgan transfers scrap and other materials from barges onto trucks for transport to their nearby SeverCorr facility.
