Materials handling: For processed raw material to reach its destination in top condition and without losses, bulk handling systems have to be carefully designed and engineered
To meet these complex requirements, we offer customers everything they need for the transportation and transshipment of raw materials. thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies provides a comprehensive range of systems for port terminals, stockyards, bulk material distribution centers and process plants. As one of the few full-line suppliers of such systems, we deliver cost-efficient,environmentally friendly solutions from individual machines to complete turnkey installations for the mining, cement, energy and sugar industries as well as for coal-fired power plants, metallurgical facilities and steel mills. We have particular experience of projects involving throughput rates of more than 10,000 tons per hour.
For raw materials handling at ports, we offer highly efficient systems for loading and unloading seagoing and inland waterway vessels. Custom-designed rail car loading and unloading stations provide optimum links to the rail system. In stockyards, our combined bucket wheel stacker/reclaimers can handle huge volumes of bulk materials. In longitudinal or circular stockyards, scraper-type units carry out blending of coal, limestone and fertilizers. For harder materials, particularly ores, bridge-type bucket wheel systems or drum reclaimers are used. Special pipe conveyors are the solution for eco-friendly handling of dusty materials in metallurgical plants, power stations and cement works.
