10/04/2017 Replacement bucket elevator for Romanian producer of calcined aluminium oxide

 Aumund Fördertechnik, Rheinberg, Germany, will this month supply a central chain bucket elevator type BWZ to Alum SA Tulcea of Romania. The new 100t/h elevator will be used in the production process to feed calcined aluminium oxide into the silo. Its installation will enable the plant operator to dispense with a machine previously purchased from another manufacturer which is no longer performing adequately. Alum Tulcea runs the only aluminium refinery in Romania. It is situated on the Ukrainian border, and produces on average 600,000t/yr of calcined aluminium oxide, which is used in the production of aluminium. 

 

By ordering the Aumund machine, the operator is taking a further step towards fulfilling the strict environmental guidelines of the European Union, through optimisation of its production process. Compared to the existing bucket elevator, noise and dust emissions are greatly reduced; therefore workplace conditions will be significantly improved. Aumund has to date sold more than 18,000 materials handling machines. The contract to supply a chain bucket elevator for silo feed of calcined aluminium oxide is, however, the first order of its kind for the Romanian aluminium industry during the German company’s entire 90-plus year history. www.aumund.com
