KHORASAN RAZAVI – An AUMUND conveyor is to be installed in a new pellet production plant in the Province of Khorasan Razavi in Iran.
It will be a 41.6-metre-long KZB 1400/350/6 with a capacity of 540 t/h of iron ore pellets. This example of the excellent working partnership between AUMUND’s head office in Germany and its subsidiary in China promises a growth in market share for the future of AUMUND Fördertechnik’s Metallurgy Division, in Iran and elsewhere. After extensive negotiations, and with the support of AUMUND Fördertechnik, AUMUND China won an order for Iran from a Chinese Project Institute. A decisive factor in this success was the know-how and expertise of the specialists of the metallurgy department in Rheinberg, who knew exactly how to satisfy the specific requirements of the customer.
The conveyor is placed at the final stage of the pellet cooler. The product from the pellet cooler is transported by this 41.6-metre-long conveyor to ongoing storage and further processing. The advantages of the AUMUND
conveyor were convincing. The standard solution at this point in the process was an inexpensive belt conveyor, but in practice the belts had to be changed too frequently because the material was too hot. This was not only costly but also caused production down times. The AUMUND pan conveyor is a very reliable solution with no temperature problems, much lower maintenance and no down times for belt changing.
Two factors led to the success of the order, on the one hand the team at AUMUND China’s excellent customer relations, and on the other, the sophisticated technical solution, which together triumphed over the competition.
AUMUND is confident of being able to set the benchmark with this project for quality and know-how in the heavily contested Iranian market and thus increase its market share.
