Title: MOBILE COVER WITH HOLE FOR LOADING OR UNLOADING CARGO HOLDS
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a mobile cover with hole for loading or unloading cargo holds, such as cargo holds of boats, barges, silos and the like. The cover allows loading and unloading operations to be carried out under environmental conditions that affect the integrity of the load and/or pollute the environment. The cover comprises two systems of folding sheets, one longitudinal and the other transverse, each of which consists of folding sheets that can move along and across the opening of the hold, driven at the ends thereof by a transmission system, which can be two parallel flexible transmissions or a single central flexible transmission. Each flexible transmission element is driven by a toothed wheel or pulley. Both the longitudinal translation system and the transverse translation system have a loading or unloading hole. The loading or unloading hole of the longitudinal translation system is covered by the transverse translation system, so that the only hole that can be used for loading or unloading is the one that is located in the transverse translation system. This achieves the goal of protecting against any adverse conditions that might enter through the opening of the hold and affect the cargo.
