SOLUTIONS FOR STORING AND FEEDING HOG FUEL
The Kamengo Feeder is in use with numerous hog fuel boiler feed, pile reclaim as well tall hog fuel day bins. With installations operating reliably since the mid-1990s, the Kamengo Feeder has established a track record of being a reliable hog fuel feeder.
To learn more about Kamengo’ wide capability and history of designing for hog fuel, please view our brochure on Solutions For Storing and Feeding Hog Fuel. The brochure covers the different storage and feed arrangements that Kamengo has done as well as highlights select projects where our equipment is located. The brochure includes simple schematics that illustrate the typical equipment layouts, including boiler feed, day bin storage and feed, pile reclaim, stand-by reclaim and tall bin storage and feed.
HOG FUEL APPLICATIONS
HOG FUEL BOILER FEED
Kamengo’s first retrofit of a hog fuel boiler feed system was completed in 1993. Since then, over a dozen hog fuel boiler feed systems have been fitted with Kamengo Feeders. These systems continue to provide our clients reliable 24/7 operation.
The Kamengo Feeder’s steady discharge and reliable flow will allow you to optimize the steam output of your boiler. Also, the energy and time previously spent unplugging your hog bins can be directed to other productive tasks.
HOG FUEL DAY BIN
Kamengo has retrofitted several tall hog fuel day bins into mass flow bins fed by a Kamengo Feeder. Prior to these retrofits, the bins could only accept a few feet of fuel or would otherwise plug.
A mass flow hopper combined with a Kamengo Feeder will allow you to use the full capacity of your day bin without the fear of hang-ups. Also, with substantial reliable storage close to the boiler, your boiler operation will be less susceptible to interruptions caused by your reclaim system.
HOG FUEL PILE RECLAIM
A unique ability of the Kamengo Feeder is that the hopper/feeder can be made quite long and still reclaim fuel uniformly – drawing material evenly from the pile.
A Kamengo Feeder pile reclaim system consumes a fraction of the energy required by competing conventional alternatives, while providing a reliable steady discharge that ensures your boiler is running on hog.
In total, there are three hog fuel reclaim Kamengo Feeders in operation. The first pile reclaim Kamengo Feeder was put into operation in 2003.
HOG FUEL TRUCK LOAD OUT
Kamengo has delivered several tall bins for handling fibrous material, including a 50-foot tall 17,000 cu-ft bin handling hog fuel in Northern British Columbia.
The Kamengo Feeder and tall bin can deliver consistent metering of material as compared to a clam shell bin which suffers from material hang-ups and poorly controlled material discharge. Also, a Kamengo Feeder and tall bin have proven that they can load more material in a given truck trailer than a conventional alternative, reducing transportation costs.
