RUD Australia, the subsidiary of the German-based RUD Group, has been providing innovative conveying solutions for various industries since 1984.
Large projects, commercial operations and complex industrial environments benefit significantly from conveyor systems. The use of conveyor systems helps mitigate the risk of damage or loss to materials being handled. This enables the efficient mechanised handling and transport of materials. Conveyors are particularly useful in challenging industrial settings where there are sizeable workloads and extreme weather conditions considered adverse or unsafe for human labour.
During bulk handling and transport, there are ever-present difficulties that industries need to anticipate. These include dust, contamination, and spills that usually occur at the transfer points of conveyor systems. Moreover, there are other problems to look out for, such as abrasion, belt misalignment and damage.
However, what makes fertiliser handling and transport particularly challenging is the added burden of the fertiliser being sticky and moist – thereby posing additional complications to the handling process.
But with RUD’s engineered fertiliser conveying solutions and systems, dust formation, material spillage and the risk of explosions occurring in critical transfer sections are minimised significantly. Moreover, the chance of any misalignment, abrasion and belt damage happening is effectively eliminated.
RUD’s innovative fertiliser conveying solutions include belt bucket elevators and spillage drag conveyors.
RUD bucket elevators enable the safe, quick, precise and efficient vertical transportation of fertiliser, cement, sand, gravel, potash and salt. Quality componentry reduces downtime and allows for maximum efficiency. Read more about this solution.
The heavy-duty, low-maintenance RUD spillage chain conveyor system is built to ensure efficient fertiliser transport in low-profile, reduced-access applications. Spillage chain conveyor systems can be fully enclosed, thereby enabling the safe, dust-free and watertight transport of bulk fertiliser material. Find out more.
Our chain-driven belt feeder conveyors are designed for optimum productivity through a completely waterless operation, with the assurance of safety even when processing hazardous waste. This system allows you to process solids faster and is suitable for both horizontal and inclined operations. Learn more.
With over 140 years of experience in engineered products and solutions and over 500 industrial patents to date, RUD is uniquely placed as an industry leader, forging partnerships with various clients in the fertiliser industry and delivering conveying solutions manufactured according to stringent quality and safety standards. If you have a specific conveying challenge, get in touch with the RUD team today.
