29.01.2018 Heavy-duty conveyors for new Uzbekistan cement plant

Aumund Fördertechnik, Rheinberg, Germany, won an order in May 2017 for three drag chain conveyors with capacities from 7.5t/h to 200t/h for discharge of limestone, gypsum and pozzolan at the new cement plant in Sherabad, Uzbekistan. In October of the same year an order for another LOUISE type Aumund drag chain conveyor for discharge of clinker dust rounded off the package. 
The complete package being put together by Aumund for its customer Almalyk Mining and Processing (AGMK) amounts, however, to more than 250t of equipment. In 2018 the German machinery manufacturer will supply to Uzbekistan no fewer than 10 belt as well as chain bucket elevators with capacities from 21t/h to 500t/h, and centre distances between 16.6 and 120m. The heavyweight of the delivery is the pan conveyor, with a centre distance of 
148m and a conveying capacity of 300t/h for clinker. The clinker conveying system comprises two further Aumund pan conveyors with the same capacity but centre distances of 54m and 65m. There are also 19 silo discharge gates included in the package. 
According to official sources, Uzbekistan would like to increase its cement production to 8.9 million tonnes by 2020. The new plant in Sherabad is a major factor in this equation. From 2019 the intention is that cement production will run at a capacity of 1.5 million tonnes of Portland cement.
