The order is part of the complete modernisation project at the Aslan plant, which is in Darıca, Kocaeli Province, approximately 60 km from Istanbul. The production capacity is to be increased to up to 6600 t/d of clinker. The extensive Aumund supply includes a bucket elevator with central chain type BWZ-L (L=low capacity) with a capacity of 225 t/h and a centre distance of 27 m to feed the raw meal mill, as well as three different models of BWG belt bucket elevators with capacities up to 500 t/h and centre distances up to 132 m. The belt bucket elevators will also be used for raw meal silo feed, as well as to transport raw meal to the dosing hopper and the heat exchanger.
The order is completed with three pan conveyors type KZB, each with capacities of 350 t/h and centre distances of up to 77.2 m, to convey clinker from the cooler to the silo, as well as two rotary discharge machines type Louise BEW, each with a diameter of 3 m and a capacity of 400 t/h.
The machines are due to be dispatched in September, and commissioning is planned for the beginning of next year.
