Typically, an angled separation is used when loading dense commodities such as ores. Using plates and special trimming techniques, angled separations are one of the most utilized separations that Hudson uses.
- Once cargo has been placed into the hold, telescopic boom trimming machines move the cargo to the end of the hold. Manual trim is utilized to position separation plates and create space on the tank top.
- Plates are manually bent to assume the shape of the cargo where they meet hoppertanks, to prevent spillage.
- With a "roof tile" technique, plates are tacked and welded together.
- Finally, wing plates are placed against the frame of the hold to prevent the commodity from gravitating down and mixing with the cargo below. A slightly elevated lip ensures that parcels remain separate during the voyage.
