The successful partnership between AUMUND France and AUMUND China has resulted in large orders for AUMUND in Algeria for two new cement plants at Zahana and Bechar. Decades of customer support, in particular strong after-sales service by AUMUND France in Algeria, as well as the close relationship of AUMUND China to the Sinoma Group, have culminated in this achievement.

The two orders together comprise 26 belt and chain bucket elevators, two bucket apron conveyors, 10 pan conveyors and 10 drag chain conveyors.

The Société des Ciments de Zahana (SCIZ) plant, which has a capacity of 4500 tpd, is near Oran, around 450 km from the capital Algiers. Here, three chain bucket elevators with centre distances ranging from 22.5 - 34.9 m, and capacities from 50 to 220 tph, will be used to convey cement and clinker. 11 belt bucket elevators (around 22.5 - 116.1 m) will convey raw meal, cement and clinker with capacities between 190 - 680 tph. The AUMUND bucket apron conveyor with a centre distance of 61.1 m and a capacity of 360 tph will join the five AUMUND pan conveyors (around 18.3 -106.8 m, capacity 300 - 360 tph) in conveying clinker. The 10 AUMUND drag chain conveyors with centre distances between 6.1 - 33.8 m will be used in clinker dust extraction and are designed for conveying capacities from 15 - 80 tph.

The second order for Algeria, for the Bechar cement plant, was placed by CBMI to AUMUND Beijing with support from AUMUND France. This plant has a capacity of 3200 tpd and will operate 15 AUMUND belt and chain bucket elevators, five AUMUND pan conveyors and an AUMUND bucket apron conveyor for its bulk materials handling. The bucket elevators with their centre distances ranging from 11 - 102.9 m will convey raw meal, cement and clinker with capacities from 70 - 480 tph. The five pan conveyors, with centre distances from 22.2 to 89.8 m, will convey their loads at up to 480 tph. The AUMUND bucket apron conveyor in Bechar (center distance 88.5 m, capacity 200 tph) will also convey clinker.
