AUMUND Fo¨rdertechnik is strengthening its share of the Turkish market. C¸imsa Cimento has now ordered about 60 AUMUND machines for the plants in Eskisehir and Nig?de in Turkey. With five kiln lines in Mersin, Eskiehir, Kayseri, Nig?de and Afyonkarahisar — as well as a grinding plant in Ankara and two cement packing plants in Marmara and Malatya — C¸imsa is one of the leading producers in the Turkish cement industry. A further 41 machines were ordered by Baticim for the plant in So¨ke. With the arrival of these two large orders,AUMUND has now sold more than 150 machines to the Turkish cement industry within one year.

By the end of 2016, AUMUND had supplied the Eskisehir plant with six central chain bucket elevators, with centre distances between 25m and 68m and capacities from 40tph (tonnes per hour) to 400tph. The package also comprised ten belt bucket elevators with centre distances between 17m and 95m and capacities from 200tph and 350tph. Also six AUMUND 800mm pan conveyors with centre distances between 15m and 47m and capacities from 150tph to 250tph were ordered.

The type of pan conveyor that can convey material in the upper run and the lower run at the same time is only built by two manufacturers worldwide. The material can be discharged by opening any of a number of remotely controlled intermediate stations positioned as required along the conveyor. The AUMUND type ordered for the Eskiehir plant is an SPB, with a centre distance of 42m and a capacity of 250tph. This particular model is equipped with three discharge stations.

This pivoting pan conveyor permits material feed into silos through stationary discharge stations. The pan construction allows the material to be distributed between several silos and bunkers. As a result any additional equipment, such as conveyors with their supporting structures and transfer chutes, is no longer necessary.

The order for Eskisehir is completed by three trough chain conveyors.

For the Nig?de plant, AUMUND will supply three central chain bucket elevators, with centre distances between 25m and 37.5m and capacities from 50tph to 400tph. The order also comprises six belt bucket elevators with centre distances between 31m and 91m and capacities from 250tph to 350tph. To convey clinker a bucket apron conveyor with a centre distance of 40m and a capacity of 250tph will be used. The clinker dust will be transported by three trough chain conveyors.

Batiso¨ke So¨ke Cimento will take delivery in mid-2017 of 14 central chain bucket elevators, with centre distances between 22m and 43m and capacities from 130tph to 600tph. The order also comprises five belt bucket elevators with centre distances between 60m and 125m and capacities from 300tph to 650tph, and 15 AUMUND pan conveyors with widths ranging from 800mm to 1,400mm, centre distances between 49m and 146m and capacities from 300tph to 600tph. Six sets of truck loading equipment will also be supplied.
