Aumund Feeders Headed for Mauretania

April 29, 2011
Two arched-plate apron feeders, each with a conveying capacity of 6000 tn/hr, are heading for northern Mauretania. 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 of this year.

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 ship unloading facilities, have been continually modernized in order to further expand the ore business. This is already one of the most important revenue sources for the West African country. The industrial group, in which the State has a 70% shareholding, yields approximately half of its revenues from this sector.
