In corporation with SAMSON Materials Handling AUMUND France has placed an order at STAMA (Société de Transit d’Agence Maritime et d’Affrètement) – their second order for a Samson® 450 Super Series to be employed at the Port of Sousse/Tunisia. This equipment is designed to receive salt and sand with a bulk density of 1.4 t/m³ to 1.6 t/m³ and will discharge directly to an ongoing conveyor system at an output feed rate of 500 m³/h.
The Samson® Mobile Feeder is fitted with a horizontal loading section which will receive salt and sand directly from 40 t capacity trucks. Additionally there is a 35 t buffer holding capacity which enables drivers to reposition subsequent discharging vehicles without pausing equipment operation. To ensure top performance rates material is conveyed on a belt supported by trapezoidal shaped apron bars situated at every chain pitch thus providing maximum balanced support during conveying. Flexible side seals help the directionality of the material travelling along the belt and minimise spillage risk. At the transfer point the material is discharged to the ongoing conveyor at a controlled volumetric rate by passing through a levelling blade. Mounted on polyurethane filled tyres and fitted with a towing facility the Samson® Feeder can be towed free of the area when not required or relocated across the port as required.
