AUMUND FÖRDERTECHNIK GMBH

Knauf trusts in Aumund Technology

Six years after the commissioning of its first Samson Material Feeder at its UK plant in Immingham, Knauf has placed an order with Aumund Fördertechnik for a second machine. Knauf has been established in England since 1988. The small town of Immingham in Lincolnshire is home to one of its two UK facilities for the production of plasterboard.

The 100 t/h Samson Material Feeder to be supplied in October 2017 has a centre distance of 11.7 m. Knauf is extending an existing raw materials reception area, where products arriving by truck are transferred directly by the Samson Feeder to an ongoing conveyor to the production facility.

The Samson Feeder presents an economical alternative to fixed bunker constructions and can receive bulk materials directly from diggers or dumper trucks.

The wide conveyor belt design allows a very low loading height so that trucks can discharge directly into the entry section of the unit. Therefore the bulk material can be unloaded and transferred to the plant straight away, with no requirement for interim storage on arrival. If continuous discharge to an ongoing conveyor is not required at any given time, the bulk material can also be stored in the Samson unit.
