KEY FEATURES OF THE KAMENGO FEEDER:
RELIABLE, CONSISTENT METERING

With a mass flow bin above, the Kamengo Feeder will meter material in a first-in, first-out flow pattern irrespective of the length of the storage. To achieve this, the Feeder draws evenly from the entire opening of the bin. A first-in, first-out flow pattern ensures that there are no stagnant pockets of material which can gain in strength and result in bridging in the storage bin above.

NO COMPACTION OF STORED MATERIAL

Unlike conventional alternatives, the Kamengo Feeder does not shear material out of the bin. This shearing action compacts the stored material, enabling it to gain in strength and hang up.

In contrast, the feeder uses gravity to its advantage to discharge material in a controlled manner. Further, because the Feeder does not put energy into shearing the material out of the bin, it is ideal for material such as pellets that require gentle handling.

LOW POWER, LOW WEAR

The Kamengo Feeder’s construction is simple and has few wear points. It can be built with wear surfaces and stainless steel for extra abrasion and/or corrosion resistance. Because the Feeder does not put energy into shearing material out of the bin, it requires far less power than a conventional feeder, saving both energy and exposure to excess wear.

FLEXIBLE DESIGN

The Kamengo Feeder can be designed long or short, as well as narrow and wide. This allows the Feeder to be sized to overcome the bridging dimension that allows a difficult flowing material to gain strength and cause a hang-up. The Feeder is able to discharge material at a wide range of capacities. In service:

  • Two self-unloading ships each with nine +100-foot long feeder (4,000 t/hr)
  • Two 35-foot long hog fuel reclaim feeders (100 t/hr)
  • 6-foot long hog fuel boiler feed feeders (20 t/hr)

The Feeder can also discharge difficult flowing materials from tall bins. In service:

  • Feeding hog fuel from a 7,000 cu-ft day-bin
  • Feeding wet bottom ash from a 11,000 cu-ft silo.
