SAMSON Materials Handling wins order
Bulk materials handling solutions provider SAMSON Materials Handling has won an order from TradeMark East Africa for four Eco Hoppers with ATEX to be delivered to the Port of Mombasa in Kenya.
The company, part of the AUMUND Group, will supply products that will aid the port’s imports of clinker, coal and gypsum in an environmentally-respectful manner.
A number of dust reduction measures will operate at both the intake area of the Eco Hopper itself and on a dusting system located between the hopper and truck.
Dust reduction measures in the order include an automatic reverse-jet cleaning system, air compressors, an inlet grill with suction capacity, a flex-flap creating a pressure differential and a dust filter unit on three sides of the hopper.
Each Eco Hopper is mounted on a chassis, making the configuration’s total height 15.7 metres, which ensures a truck clearance height of more than 4 metres.
The Hoppers’ travel is mobile-powered and the products also have crabbing functionality, allowing specific positioning of the hoppers alongside the vessel, as well as a peak throughput rate of 700tph.
Each Hopper’s inlet grill measures 6m x 6m and is topped by a 2m high shroud, creating an aperture of 8.2m x 8.2m for grab discharge and therefore mitigating the effects of high winds.
The use of ATEX with dust filtration import hoppers is a first of its kind in the market.
Management of air quality and fugitive dust is important at the port as operations occur in a dusty atmosphere which has high levels of humidity and temperatures between 22 and 40 degrees centigrade.
