Efficient Solutions for Environmentally Friendly Conveying and Storage of Bulk Materials

Around 70 years ago the first AUMUND conveyor with deep-drawn pans for the transportation of clinker was installed. Since then AUMUND Fördertechnik (Rheinberg/Germany) has become an international market leader in products and efficient solutions for the conveying of especially hot and abrasive bulk materials in the cement industry and related sectors worldwide. The range of these products and solutions encompasses feeding, extraction and transportation solutions in all stages of cement production processes, in particular from the cement mill to clinker dispatch.

Building on extensive product and process knowledge in the cement industry, AUMUND has also been very successful with its equipment in minerals/raw materials and mining. Solid know-how has been developed over time in the many diverse methods of mining, processing and refining different natural resources with the most varied of characteristics. AUMUND machines are also utilised for the conveying and storage of fertilisers and non-metallic minerals, as well as in iron, steel and aluminium production and in foundries. AUMUND creates flexible, individual solutions for their customers, based on standard components. Bucket elevators, pan conveyors, chain conveyors, silo technology and extraction and discharge systems are designed with maximum capacities and meet the highest technical demands. The installation on site is supervised by specialised engineers and after sales service personnel.

Vertical conveyors of up to 175 m and higher, solutions for crusher feeding and discharge of up to 11,000 t/h as well as pressure shock resistant conveyors are representative examples of the strength of the AUMUND solutions. Metered silo feeding and metered silo extraction as well as dust suppressed loading of ships, railway wagons and trucks complete the product portfolio of the AUMUND Group of companies.

The minerals sector is increasingly convinced by AUMUND’s worldwide experience in the construction of specialised machinery. Besides the flagship classics, such as belt bucket elevators and pan conveyors, the installed heavy plate conveyors for crusher feeding are proving that AUMUND has more to show for itself than decades of experience in limestone processing.

Growth in market share has been achieved over many years, not only in the sale of new machinery, but also by AUMUND’s after sales service and conversion departments, with their own solutions for increasing productivity and minimising manufacturing down times and maintenance costs.
