Environmental Applications

Alternative fuels such as biomass, agricultural waste products, end of life tyres, paper, plastics, refuse derived fuel (RDF) all form part of the fuel mix in many cement plant and power utilities including combined heat and power plants.  All of these materials present a challenge to the materials handling plant designer given that they are different in their characteristics; from light and dry through to heavy and extremely cohesive.

Thanks to the wide apron belt design of the SAMSON Material Feeder, virtually any combination of these materials may be received from truck and stored before discharge to the process.

For dedicated biomass-fuelled power plants, the material source (often wood pellet or wood chip) may be far removed from the user on a different continent, demanding effective logistic solutions for their economic transportation.
