Wood Chips

Kamengo has developed a design practice capable of tackling complex projects, including retrofits of storage and feed arrangements that suffer from plugging.

Wood chips is a low density material that requires a wide bin opening and a fully live bin to achieve reliable material flow without risk of hang-ups.

This scenario is challenging to achieve with conventional feeders, but is easy to achieve with a Kamengo Feeder. As a result, the Kamengo Feeder is ideally suited for feeding chips from silos/tall storage, feeding chips through steaming bins, and loading chips into trucks.

A Kamengo designed bin and Feeder installed in 1995 demonstrated that a Kamengo Feeder could load 14-25% more chips in a truck trailer before it volumed-out as compared to a truck loaded using a more conventional method.
