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 plants 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 Mobile 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 chips) may be far removed from the user on a different continent, demanding effective logistic solutions for their economic transportation.
SAMSON Materials Handling equipment is mobile for surface application. It requires no civil works and can be moved clear of the operating area when not in use.
SAMSON offers economical solutions for the loading and discharge of rail wagons, road trucks, barges and ships, right up to Panamax size vessels. By using a combination of surface mounted and mobile solutions, we provide maximum flexibility combined with high loading/discharge rates and best practice environmental standards.
