Mobile Auger Loading Facility

A great Australian success story, Orica engaged Millers to manufacture a mobile auger loading system for the transport of ammoniam nitrate at a discharge rate of 45 tonnes per hour. The system consists of a stainless steel receival hopper which is loaded with bulker bags of ammoniam nitrate, which is then conveyed to a discharge height of 4 metres.

The auger tube conveyor, which is also manufactured from stainless steel, is driven by a diesel generator coupled to a hydraulic drive system which raises and lowers the conveyor and supplies the power for the hydraulic drive motor which is coupled to the auger.
