BLT SA – exclusive distributors in sub-Saharan Africa for bulk materials handling equipment manufacturers, Samson Materials Handling Limited – supplies an extensive range of fixed and mobile conveying equipment to diverse sectors, including mining, agriculture, shipping, transport, power and general industry.
“Samson Materials Handling Limited, previously known as B&W Mechanical Handling Limited (part of the international Aumund Group) was re-branded at the beginning of 2013. The company, which was established in 1966, offers mobile material handling equipment with flexibility and reliability from truck intake, through to stacking and ship loading,” says Charity Gumede, marketing director, BLT SA. “These automated handling systems, which ensure minimal civil works, offer an attractive alternative to expensive fixed installations. Operating costs are low and maintenance requirements are minimal.
“Samson equipment is designed for specific applications, taking into consideration the widely differing handling characteristics of each bulk material.”
Samson designs and manufactures bulk handling equipment, which includes link conveyors, grab hoppers, material feeders, radial boom stackers and mobile shiploaders.
New to the range are telescopic conveyors for radial telescopic stacking and tracked Stormajor®boom feeders. These machines are currently in production in the UK and will be launched locally later this year.
The new boom feeder BF0415T, which is an advancement of the wheeled system to the tracked version, improves performance, reliability and manoeuvrability. This machine, with a 15 m boom length and a maximum capacity of 1 000 tph, is designed for efficient stockpiling, barge loading, shiploading and rail wagon loading.
This boom feeder operates safely and efficiently in all conditions, even in arduous environments. Tracked Stormajor®boom feeders have been designed for utilisation with articulated dump trucks (ADT’s) up to 30 tonnes capacity, road tipping trucks hauling 30 tonne trailers and wheel loaders with a bucket capacity of up to 8 m³.
The BF0415T can also be supplied with an interchangeable 20 m boom – this is convenient for fleet owners and operators requiring a huge stockpiling capacity over multiple sites.
The compact design means this boom feeder can be deployed and operational within minutes of being delivered to site.
The Stormajor boom feeder combines the benefits of the Samsonmaterial feeder unit with a radial outloading boom, both of which are mounted to a common chassis as a fully integrated mobile stacker that is able to receive material from tipping trucks and loading shovels.
With the radial boom feature (130° boom radial range) this boom stacker is able to efficiently create vast stockpiles, with minimal machine movements. Using a hydraulic cylinder in tension, a wide angular range may be accommodated allowing the boom to be lowered almost horizontal. This system allows material with a low repose angle to be stockpiled at steep conveyor angles, without material engulfing the main axle wheels.
A range of optional equipment and accessories provides flexibility in bulk materials handling applications on the mines. For example, enclosure systems with the option of extraction equipment are used for handling dusty materials.
BLT SA supports the Samson range with a technical advisory, parts and maintenance service. The company also distributes a range of container handling equipment throughout Africa.
New to the Samson range are tracked Stormajor BF0415Tboom feeders. This machine, with a 15 m boom length and a maximum capacity of 1 000 tph, is designed for efficient stockpiling, barge loading, shiploading and rail wagon loading.
