Pneumatic or mechanical unloading of ships

It's like vacuuming, but different. Shortly after the turbo blowers have been switched on and created enough vacuum, the corn is sucked out of the vessel. Although this is not the only way to empty a ship of cargo, Vigan in Belgium is devoted to pneumatic ship unloading of bulky materials. Feed Tech asked commercial director Alain de Visscher to explain why.
