A SELECTION OF KAMENGO FINE AND COHESIVE MATERIAL STORAGE AND FEED PROJECTS

GRAIN SCREENINGS STORAGE AND FEED (1988)

Vancouver, Canada

In 1988, Kamengo installed a Kamengo Feeder under two screening storage vessels, including a 100-foot tall bin that holds up to 200 tons of screenings that could be kept in storage for up to a month. Kamengo also retrofitted an 80-foot high screenings silo. Prior to the retrofit, the plant would normally have to clean buildup along the silo walls, but since the retrofit there has been no buildup of screenings along the silo-wall. Since the retrofit, the plant has had reliable feed from its screening silos with no bridging.

BREWERY FLAKED CORN SILO RETROFIT

New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada

The 15-foot diameter flaked corn silo at this brewery was experiencing erratic and unreliable flow. The stored flaked corn would stagnate along the bin walls causing hang-ups. Kamengo replaced the bottom of the cone with a new mass flow “transition” hopper with steeper walls and a larger outlet dimension. The transition hopper was fitted with a Kamengo Feeder and screw conveyor to bring the discharged flaked corn to a single point. After the retrofit, the silo could be discharged in an even controlled manner without plug-ups, allowing the plant to operate at optimum capacity. The elimination of hang-ups allowed the brewery to produce an additional batch of beer per day.
