AUMUND supplies conveying solution for bauxite

T‌his summer AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH will be supplying an AUMUND Arched Plate Conveyor to Mytilineos S.A. in Agios Nikolaos on the Gulf of Corinth in Greece. This is the location at which the Mytilineos metallurgy and technology group operates a plant which produces aluminium in a two-step process.

 

After mining and processing the bauxite, Mytilineos produces alumina from the enriched ore, which forms the basis for the electrolytic production of metallic aluminium in Agios Nikolaos. The conveying process in the plant consists of discharging bauxite from a silo, and onward transportation to a rod mill by an AUMUND Arched Plate Conveyor type BPB 250-1200. This is a specialised requirement in terms of both the material and the application. In designing the Arched Plate Conveyor, AUMUND Fördertechnik had to consider among other things the specific material properties of bauxite, such as abrasiveness, dustiness, angle of repose and also the fact that it can sometimes be sticky. A major advantage in winning the order was being able to arrange the customer’s visit to a cement plant in Volos, where a similar AUMUND Arched Plate Conveyor is in operation.
