Order from Mauretania

AUMUND delivers two arched-plate apron feeders, each with a conveying capacity of 6000 t/h, to northern Mauretania (Fig.). They will be employed there by a leading mining company for bunker unloading of iron-sinter, crushed and ground iron-ore as well as iron-pellets. Delivery is planned for June 2011. With their arched-shaped plates, AUMUND arched-plate apron feeders form a surface which makes cleaning possible with a scraper. The task of regulating unloading capacity is performed by a speed-controlled drive. The lighter versions of these feeders can, by the way, also be equipped with a weighing rail and frequency-controlled drive and be employed as a weigh-feeder. Over the last decade the transport infrastructure in Mauritania, as well as the ore stockyards and shipunloading facilities, have been continually modernised in order to further expand the ore business. This is already one of the most important revenue sources for the West African country.
