Hydroelectric Power Plant Rheinfelden
From 2005 through 2006, Hunger Maschinen GmbH (through Hans Künz, Austria) furnished one of the largest European Hydroelectric power plant projects by providing 7 hydraulic power packs for 7 power plant dams consisting of 3 sector gates with flap gate and 4 without flap gate. Additionally, 14 control blocks for the sector cylinders as well as 6 control blocks for the clamshell cylinders were provided by our sister company Walter Hunger GmbH & Co. KG.
The 100 year old river power station was replaced with a more modern and efficient equipment. The new construction enabled the average annual capacity to be tripled to 600 GWh.
Crusher Open Pit Mine Yimin He (CN)
In 2007, Hunger Maschinen GmbH supplied ThyssenKrupp Fördertechnik with power units for a fully-automatic coal crusher located in Yimin He (Inner Mongolia), China. A hydraulic drive station with a drive capacity of P = 2 x 250 kW and a total output capacity of Q = 1050 l/min powered a crusher conveyor drive, 1 hydraulic power pack for the crusher discharge boom, 4 hydraulic power packs for the conveyor plant, 1 hydraulic power pack for the double roll crusher, as well as 4 control blocks for the transport crawler.
Under the most demanding climatic conditions, the plant mines approximately 3000 tonnes of coal per hour in China‘s northernmost open pit mine. As a result of the double roll crushers, the plant is ideally suited to crush loose rock und bedrock that can withstand pressures of up to 180 MPa. In addition to coal, other minerals such as: rocks and soils, natural stones, slags and cement clinker can bemined with this crusher.
For more than two decades Hunger Maschinen GmbH has been renowned as a supplier of hydraulic systems to the aluminium sector. Our hydraulic power packs serve as drives for vertical casting plants with tilting frames, for casting and melting furnace technology, aluminium pusher furnaces, charging machines and other casting plants which are employed world-wide in the metal working industry. We engineer, design and manufacture custom-made solutions for up to 120 t casting weight.
