AUMUND Beijing has received an order for the supply of a Samson® Material Feeder type 1600 for coal handling in the Guodian power plant in Fengcheng. Mobile conveyors of this type are installed in applications all over the world, predominantly to receive correctives, additives and alternative fuels.
The Samson® has already proved its flexibility in being able to handle such a diverse range of conveying properties displayed by materials, such as sewage sludge, manufacturing byproducts, biomass and industrial or domestic refuse. The machine is now underlining its flexibility in the Asian power industry.
Unlike on conventional tipping yards, the Samson® Feeder does not just deposit the material but actively extracts it from the truck. In this way, a regulated material flow is achieved, irrespective of whether the materials are wet, sticky, heavy or abrasive. Furthermore, the machine is installed above ground, with no need for preparatory construction, and no expensive civil works for deep pits or underground hoppers. Being mobile, it can easily be repositioned for use in different locations and even provides temporary buffer storage capacity. The wide-apron belt design eliminates bridging or spillage, giving a reliable conveying solution whatever the material.
