Case history10/02/2016 - 17:30 - Relying on the experience recently made with the installation at the Port of Costanta (Romania), Cargill commissioned Golfetto Sangati the design, build and installation of a new handling and storage system. This project, in Alexandria Port, Egypt, is called “Brown Bear”, consists of high capacity chain conveyors (1400tph loading/ 700tph unloading) and storage steel silos (54.000 tons). To cope with this stringent request, Golfetto Sangati is assembling the key components of the system by selecting the most robust and reliable components. The HEAVY DUTY CONVEYOR R1150, fully complies to Cargill specifications: bottom plate in manganese steel l – 10mm thickness; side plates lined in manganese steel, 5mm thickness; 2 sets of double chain rails. Drive and tail sections are equipped with split sprocket and pillow blocks bearing, to assure easy maintenance. Chains have been selected in order to assure the remarkable durability required: 2x550mm wide chains with breaking load of 55.000 kg each assure the correct power transmission. Drive is granted by 110 to 160 kW with shaft mounted gearbox and hydraulic coupling.
