BMA awards contract to RHEWUM about 3 large Vibrating Conveying Throughs, Egypt
Meike Schulz, RHEWUM GmbH
At 22nd May, 2008 BMA (Braunschweigische Maschinenbauanstalt AG) placed an order with RHEWUM for construction, manufacturing and delivery of 3 vibrating conveyors type RHEWUM RIU for the Nile Sugar Project.
The sugar production named Nile Sugar Company located on the area of Nobaria will include a beet sugar refinery with a processing capacity of 8.000 t/d and a raw sugar refinery with a processing capacity of 1.200 t/d. The very special feature of this project are the dimensions of the throughs with two times 10.650 mm and once 9.000 resp. the overall length of the whole haulway of 30 m to be done by only three throughs. RHEWUM will realize these machines not in the conventional bar-driven way but driven by two out-of-balance motors. Doing it this way it is very important to achieve an extremely warp-resistant construction in order to get the needed consistent movement of the machine and to guarantee this even at changing loads during the discharge of the sugar centrifuges. Instead of conventional helicoidal pressure springs special elements, 6 for each through, made by Rosta will be used as vibration absorbers. Commissioning is foreseen for the 1st quarter of 2009.
After clearance with the consortium the construction works have already been started by Orascom Construction as general contractor for the local part of assembly. BMA is a technology company which is well known as a reliable high quality partner of sugar industry for long years as well as RHEWUM is. Besides the RHEWUM vibrating conveying throughs BMA uses RHEWUM screening machines for their challenging screening tasks.
RIU vibrating conveying troughs are a highly economic transportation device for various bulk materials. Their field of application is the continuous or intermittently transport. They guarantee a high transportation speed and a soft material treatment at the same time. Due to their simple but robust and reliable construction they are a low-cost and all-round solution for many transport problems and have a very high availability.
