A SELECTION OF KAMENGO BOILER FEED PROJECTS

HOG FUEL BOILER STORAGE AND FEED RETROFIT (1994)

Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada

The Kamloops installation includes the retrofit of the hog fuel feed system on two boilers. The first boiler was retrofitted with Kamengo Feeders in 1994 and the second was retrofitted in 1996. In both cases, the Kamengo Feeders replaced star feeders that would cause plugs in the bin and chutes below. Along with eliminating hang-ups, the Kamengo Feeders provide a more uniform steady discharge of hog fuel as compared to the pulsating action of the previous star feeders. The steady discharge of fuel improved fuel distribution and boiler efficiency.

HOG FUEL BOILER STORAGE AND FEED (2007)

Benson, Minnesota, USA

The Benson, Minnesota installation is a feed system for a new boiler. The plant operation is particularly challenging because its primary fuel is hog fuel mixed with straw and poultry litter. The result is a fuel that is not only fibrous and compactible, but also sticky and corrosive. This fuel mixture has proven problematic for screw feeders, but is handled with ease by the Kamengo Feeder. There are eight inlets into the boiler, with a Kamengo supplied bin, Kamengo Feeder, screw conveyor and chute for each inlet.

HOG FUEL BOILER STORAGE AND FEED RETROFIT (2014)

Tacoma, Washington, USA

The Tacoma installation is a retrofit where five screw feeders were replaced with five new surge bins and Kamengo Feeders. The mill was experiencing severe plugging problems with its screw feeders and could only operate its fuel feed system with very low levels of fuel in its bins. The Kamengo Feeders eliminated the plugging problems and now allow the fuel feed system’s new bins to run at full capacity. The Kamengo Feeder’s uniform steady discharge of fuel has improved fuel distribution, and boiler output and efficiency.

HOG FUEL BOILER STORAGE AND FEED RETROFIT (2015)

QUESNEL, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA

The Quesnel installation is a retrofit where eight small screw feeders experiencing chronic plugging where replaced by four surge bins and feeders. Each Kamengo Feeder feeds a split chute, which in-turn directs the hog fuel into two boiler spouts.
