Tegelen, Netherlands – Certain situations in powders, pellet and granulate handling require raw materials to be fed back vertically into the production process. Poeth has developed its new C-Conveyor specifically for these situations: it optimises the production capacity of recirculating conveying systems and minimises the risk of contamination.
Beckum, Germany – BEUMER Group opened a new sales office in the Ruhr area of Germany to support its customers with an even more comprehensive range of services. From this sales office “West”, BEUMER Customer Support will handle worldwide retrofitting and modernisation projects, for example on currently operating conveying systems like bucket elevators and clinker conveyors, including those from other suppliers.
Adlington, UK — Having been awarded the contract earlier in 2017 Fairport Engineering has now delivered some twelve drag link conveyors and five bucket elevators to a new client in Nigeria. These pieces of equipment and various ancillaries such as actuated valves, chute-work and spares will form the key mechanical units in a challenging project to increase wheat mill production capacity from 65 to some 200 t/h.
Rheinberg, Germany — In May 2017 AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH won the order for three drag chain conveyors with capacities from 7.5 to 200 t/h for discharge of limestone, gypsum and pozzolan for the new cement plant in Sherabad, Uzbekistan. In October 2017 an order for another LOUISE type drag chain conveyor for discharge of clinker dust rounded off the package. The complete package being put together for the customer Almalyk Mining and Processing (AGMK) amounts, however, to more than 250 t of machinery.
Simatek Bulk Systems A/S is a company specialised in the mechanical conveying of fragile products. A long-running development process on the elevators has resulted in a broad variety of pendulum bucket elevators which have been customised according to the comprehensive demands of the industry to in-house transportation of fragile products.

PLASTIROL from the Dutch town of Sliedrecht is a manufacturer of plastic foil produced in large rolls. For their raw materials, which are recycled from production waste, in the past they used bulk bags. This usually caused many storage, handling, discharge and replacement issues in their internal logistics system. The move towards larger storage silos linked to a vast duct network became mandatory.
