Good news for the division Minerals & Mining at AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH: EuroChem Volgakaliy LLC placed the order with the German bulk materials handling specialists for the supply of central chain bucket elevators and twin-strand trough chain conveyors for the Gremyachinskoye Potash Project in Kotelnikovo.

EuroChem is the largest Russian producer of fertilizers. According to their own data, EuroChem qualifies as one of the three largest fertilizer producers in Europe and among the top 10 worldwide. EuroChem target to become one of the world’s largest producers of fertilizers within the next five years.
At the end of 2012 AUMUND will deliver three twin-strand trough chain conveyors (TKF) featuring centre distances of 10m to 33m and discharge capacities of 180t/h to 360t/h as well as three central chain bucket elevators (BWZ) with a conveying capacity of 180t/h each. EuroChem is thus placing its confidence in AUMUND’s central chain bucket elevators for continuous-operation transport of potash (material temperatures from 30°C to 150°C) from drying to granulation.

„The right technology, rapid availability, longevity of the products and an attractive price“, according to the assessment by Dr. Michael Mutz, manager of the division Minerals & Mining, „were decisive for the contract award to AUMUND“. Through its employment of central chain bucket elevators, instead of the hitherto conventional twin-strand chain bucket elevators in the fertilizer industry, EuroChem insisted on the newest and most efficient technology. „Contracts such as these bear witness to the continual introduction of the most modern conveying technology solutions, also in the traditional mining and fertilizer industries.“, explains Dr. Mutz.

With over 15,000 reference installations worldwide in all industrial sectors, especially in the worldwide cement industry, AUMUND leads in the field of conveying technology for abrasive and hot bulk materials.
