New AUMUND RDM for BlueScope Steel, Australia

Posted on 17 February 2017
 

AUMUND  Fördertechnik  GmbH  has  been  assigned  to  supply  a  new  state-of-the  art  Rotary Discharge Machine (RDM) to automatically reclaim the coke from underneath the stockpile for further transport. BlueScope Steel in Wollongong (New South Wales), the main steel producer in Australia is operating a coke oven battery which today produces coke not only for their own consumption  but  also  for  the  market.  As  an  intermediate  storage  the  coke  is  piled  on  large stockpiles  (total  storage  capacity  of  90,000  tons)  with  50,000  tons  built  up  on  top  of discharging gullet. 

The AUMUND Rotary Discharge Machine travels inside a tunnel under which a discharge wheel reclaims the bulk material from one side of the gullet bottom. Such applications are widely used worldwide also in case of closed storage systems further reducing potential dust emissions. The RDM has already been commissioned as a star performer in the overall raw material handling project of BlueScope Steel. Such applications of AUMUND RDM are becoming more and more popular worldwide also in case of closed storage systems further reducing potential dust emissions.
