Hot Sinter Transport: AUMUND has a vast range of different types of pans and plates for transporting hot and abrasive bulk materials. Temperature, precise material dosage, and the proportion of lumps and chunks have to be considered. AUMUND Conveyors transport hot sinter with temperatures up to 1000 °C. Herewith capacities from 200 t/h up to 1480 t/h have been realized. The energy consumption and maintenance costs are reduced significantly.
Hot Fe-Pellet Transport: The capabilities of the existing facilities can hardly keep up with the increased demand in capacities. The pellet cooler is often followed by rubber belt conveyors to handle the cooled pellets. After a capacity increase, the temperature of the pellets at the cooler exit rises remarkably. AUMUND Metallic Pan Conveyors are installed from the early beginning or as a main part of a conversion. After the pellets have been cooled down, the remaining distance can be bridged over with rubber belts.
Transport of Hot DRI and EAF Hot Charging: AUMUND Hot Transport Systems have been continuously improved. The latest type of AUMUND BZB-H-I requires significantly less nitrogen compared to earlier designs. The strength of chains has increased from 1200 to 3000 kN, which offers higher capacities rates and/or a higher lifting. The current third generation of rollers, which can resist the high temperature in a metallurgical surrounding, is life lubricated.
