Processed wood pulp is a fibrous, low-density, highly-compactible material that is able to bridge overlarge bin openings.
This installation on Vancouver Island, in British Columbia,Canada includes a 6,000 cu-ft mass flow bin and Kamengo Feeder for storing and discharging processed wood pulp into 45-foot truck trailers. The stored processed wood pulp at the Crofton installation has a 60%+ moisture content, making it a particularly difficult flowing material. The mill has been able to store material for several days without hang-ups in the bin.The Kamengo Feeder is powered by a 20 HP hydraulic power unit and can load a trailer in 10-20 minutes. The system has provided reliable service since start-up in December 2004.
