Samson® Material Feeder taking over bulk materials from truck.

SAMSON Materials Handling, under the umbrella of the worldwide operating AUMUND Group of companies, has received an order from Black & Veatch, a global leader in engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for energy and water, for two Samson® Material Feeders type 450 Super Series to operate as sludge cake reception units for Yorkshire Water, UK.

These units are designed to receive material at a variable rate up to 120m³/h and discharge material at a variable rate down to 30m³/h. There is a holding capacity of 30m³. These units will be commissioned at the end of 2017.

Bulk sludge cake will be delivered directly from 30m³ tipping trucks. Roller shutter doors will open at the push of a button enabling the vehicle to reverse into discharge position. When the truck is in position the belt on the Samson® Feeder will start up. The Samson® Feeder will discharge onto a screw conveyor.
