A SELECTION OF FRONT END LOADED BIN PROJECTS

FGD (SYNTHETIC) GYPSUM STORAGE AND FEED (2013)

Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada

In 1997 Kamengo conducted flow characterization tests of FGD gypsum to determine critical design parameters for a bin and feeder to be used in outdoor artic conditions. In 2012, Kamengo was selected to deliver this installation, which includes a feeder, hopper and grizzly, 140-foot belt conveyor, crusher, transfer tower, and screw conveyor. Kamengo has also supplied a duplicate set-up of equipment for a sister plant, also in Fort McMurray.

RECYCLED GYPSUM STORAGE AND FEED (1995)

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

This installation is a retrofit of an existing front-end loaded hopper and feed system handling recycled gypsum. The stored recycled gypsum – is particularly nasty: it consists of crushed wet gypsum board reclaimed from construction debris, including nails and paper, and is stored in an outside pile subject to Vancouver’s wet weather. The hopper and feed system has provided reliable service since it was retrofitted in 1995.
