New order for Aumund, Venezuela
Published: 04 November 2009

Barely one year after the takeover of the Holcim subsidiary in Venezuela by the state, investments are made to ensure the proper functioning of the system in the South American plant: The responsible managers placed with AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH the order for one heavy-duty apron feeder with arched plates (2000/150/25+25) of type BPB-S-K and for two spillage conveyors for the limestone transport.

This order for AUMUND means the medium term replacement of a still operating apron feeder with arched plates by the new machine that will be designed for a conveying capacity of 1050tph. The heavy-duty apron feeders are preferably installed underneath tipping points and transport uncrushed raw materials. The preferred materials to be conveyed on this feeder are uncrushed limestone of more than 1000mm edge length, gypsum and other raw materials extracted from quarries. AUMUND apron feeders with arched plates can also be used to discharge moist and sticky materials such as loam, marl, natural gypsum and pozzolana from hoppers.
