A SELECTION OF PILE RECLAIM PROJECTS

HOG FUEL PILE RECLAIM AND FEED RETROFIT (2004)

Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada

The retrofit of the below ground reclaim system at the Kamloops mill replaced an existing chain reclaimer with a Kamengo Feeder. The retrofit involved installing a new mass flow hopper and Kamengo Feeder within the existing concrete bunker. The mill’s previous chain reclaimer had to be spoon fed as the hopper would plug or the chain would get overloaded. With the Kamengo Feeder, the mill is able to maintain a 40-foot tall pile containing over 15,000 cu-ft of hog fuel over the reclaim system.

HOG FUEL PILE RECLAIM (2005)

Northern British Columbia, Canada

This installation includes two 36-foot long Kamengo Feeders that were installed as part of a new co-generation project. The Kamengo reclaimers provide up to 8 hours of live storage of hog fuel. A unique aspect of this mill’s fuel feed system is the absence of metering bins/feeders at the boiler. In place of the metering bins, the mill uses the two Kamengo reclaimers to control the fuel feed to the boiler.
