From World Premiere to Working Life

SBM Mineral Processing successfully places sophisticated mixing plant technology in the German market.
At bauma 2019 SBM Mineral Processing presented EUROMIX® 3300 SPACE for the first time. It was announced as a “mobile space miracle” and everybody wondered how SBM had fulfilled all the challenging requirements concerning mobile mixing plants.
Stephan Godel, managing director and founder of the company GODEL-BETON GmbH, was so impressed with the plant he made up his mind to buy one on the stand and is very satisfied with his decision. Only a few days later EUROMIX® 3300 SPACE started working at the GODEL location in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, and has since then been producing up to 1,000 m³ concrete per day.
Zacharias Funk, head of systems engineering at GODEL, accompanied the erection of the plant. With the help of his team, the mechanical erection of EUROMIX® 3300 SPACE took less than 2 days. “I think that under optimum conditions it is possible to produce concrete in only 3 days after the first transport”, says Mr. Funk who is very impressed by the sophisticated construction of the plant.
The plant with the same weight as previous models, offers enormously more space and even matches semi-mobile plants.
As a standard EUROMIX® 3300 SPACE is provided with an insulated cladding to ensure better production and operating conditions. Nevertheless, erection is easy and quick.
The excellent system statics allows erection on a compacted and level surface without requiring extra complex steps or foundations. For the silos, mobile foundations with an unit weight of 8 – 10 tons in standard transportation dimensions are provided.
In action EUROMIX® 3300 SPACE demonstrates a remarkable performance. Mark Stumpe, plant manager at the Gelsenkirchen production site, together with his team of mixing plant operators, manages to achieve an output capacity of 140 m³/h of hardened concrete. GODEL serves the Ruhr district since the well-noted order by Emschergenossenschaft to produce several 100,000 m³ even acid-resistant concretes. This centennial “renaturalisation project of the river Emscher” drains big parts of the Ruhr district, the construction of the new hugely dimensioned canalisation requires a clear-cut and sustainable quality awareness. Used to the top quality provided by GODEL, the client is taking a critical position towards concrete suppliers. Mark Stumpe does not only meet the high quality demands placed in this location. He even goes on with a wink to meet another challenge by saying: “We have come here to stay “ at the installation of EUROMIX® 3300 SPACE to increase the plant capacity for the Ruhr district.
In addition to the benefits already mentioned such as spaciousness and safety, aspects he highly appreciates are the rapid responsiveness of the plant from material feed to discharging during operation. “The large dosing gates and the efficient conveying technology ensure the plant’s high performance in compliance with the tight quality tolerances.”
Both Mark Stumpe and Zacharias Funk confirm that due to the further development of the series EUROMIX® SBM Mineral Processing can further strengthen its position as pioneer and market leader. Thanks to SBM Mineral Processing being a manufacturer of highly mobile plants, GODEL can assure its guiding position in the fiercely competitive markets and locations in Germany.
