CASE HISTORY 1
Biomass To Energy Co.
Casing Diameter: 4 inches
Elevation: 20 feet
Rate per hour: 2 tons
Material: Biomass Pellets
Special Features: Volumetric Feeder/Elevator
A company that had developed a process of converting cellulosic biomass into Synthesis Gas to fuel a turbine to generate electricity contacted Olds Elevator LLC about an elevator to feed a biomass reactor. The feedstock for the reactor was wood pellets made from sawdust.
A 4-inch diameter, 20 foot tall elevator was supplied to feed the reactor. The customer was particularly pleased with the precise volumetric flow rate control offered by the Olds elevator and its inherent dust explosion risk control. Since the elevator delivers material vertically in a fully-flooded column there is no room for dust to form thereby reduces the risk of a dust explosion dramatically.Email Olds Elevator™
