Alum SA Tulcea Romania optimises its production conditions with new bucket elevator

Published by , Editorial Assistant
Dry Bulk,

Alum SA Tulcea of Romania will take delivery of a new central chain bucket elevator type BWZ from AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH in April 2017. The new 100 tph bucket elevator will be used in the production process to feed calcined aluminium oxide into the silo. The installation of the new bucket elevator will enable the plant operator to dispense with a machine previously purchased from another manufacturer which is no longer performing.

Alum Tulcea runs the only aluminium refinery in Romania. It is situated on the Ukrainian border, and produces on average 600 000 t per Press Information year 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 are significantly improved. AUMUND has built a reputation as world-renowned specialist for conveying and storage technology, in almost all branches of the industry, selling more than 18 000 machines. The contract to supply a chain bucket elevator for silo feed of calcined aluminium oxide is, however, the first order of this kind for the Romanian aluminium industry in the entire 90+ years’ history of the AUMUND Group.
