BEUMER supplies curved Pipe Conveyor
to Sweden

The Swedish high-tech minerals group LKAB based in ­Northern Sweden has commissioned ­BEUMER to provide a curved Pipe Conveyor (Fig.) for the transport of olivine in summer and quartzite in winter, each at 800 tons per hour. This material is used for the production of high-quality iron ore pellets. The system will be installed at the company-owned transshipment port in Narvik/Norway. It will automate the storage of material and the filling of railway wagons, which is currently done manually. These wagons transport the material to the main plants in Kiruna and Malmberget. The complete system comprises the feeding area with vibrating feeders, the Pipe Conveyor with a centre distance of 341.2 m, the steel structure and a reversible troughed belt conveyor feeding the customer‘s silos. The pipe diameter of the Pipe Conveyor is 300 mm, and its conveying speed is 3.1 m/s. The decisive factor for the contract award to BEUMER was an almost identical system that has been operating very successfully at another mining company for more than 10 years. The complete system will be supplied, installed and commissioned by BEUMER.
