Live bottom metering and distribution bins are critical to storing, metering, and distributing biomass fuel materials like wood, bark, sawdust, chips, and tires (tire derived fuel or TDF) necessary for a facility boiler or furnace.
Live bottom screw metering bins utilize single or multiple engineered screws to properly distribute fuel for uniform heat distribution of the combustion processes, and better control of boiler emissions.
Live Bottom Metering Bins
ProcessBarron custom designs metering bins to minimize or eliminate plugging, and store a specified amount of material to prevent interruptions of fuel feed from the main storage area to the combustion process area. Fuel is then metered from the bin with variable speed controlled screws protected by an abrasion resistant ceramic coating or chromium carbide weld overlay.
The speed of the individual screws controls the fuel distribution and amount of fuel in the combustion process.
Rugged bin construction ensures long service life
Bark bin construction features heavy abrasion resistant steel bottoms, screw flights, and convenient access doors for easy screw removal and maintenance. Complete metering bin assemblies include configured motors, drive shafts and bearings. Process Barron can also design and engineer a custom monorail system for bark bin screw replacement.
