Bruks Siwertell outperforms all traditional alumina handling technology

Our totally-enclosed Siwertell screw-type unloaders outperform all traditional alumina unloading options, such as grab cranes and pneumatic systems.

This is because with Siwertell unloaders there is minimal cargo degradation and no cargo loss from spillage. Bruks Siwertell ship loaders and conveyors are well-established as preferred bulk material handling systems for alumina across the world.

Alumina: a valuable bulk commodity

Alumina (aluminum oxide) is a valuable, powdery bulk commodity used primarily for the production of aluminum. This lightweight metal has important qualities of strength, conductivity, flexibility and resistance to corrosion that lend it to uses ranging from food packaging to airplane construction. Unlike many metals and other materials, aluminum can be recycled indefinitely without suffering any reduction in quality.

Careful bulk handling and zero spillage save a lot of money

Alumina requires careful handling because smelting costs rise dramatically if the percentage of fines (dust) in the cargo is increased by damage caused during bulk handling operations. Adopting Siwertell unloaders can save an alumina operation a great deal of money as a result of controlling its smelting costs and receiving all its shipped cargo.
