Straw handling equipment
Kinetic Biofuel offers a range of straw handling equipment aligned with the briquetting equipment.
The straw handling consists of the shown main components:
Straw preparation plant
The straw bales are placed on the bale conveyors, which conveys the straw bales to the shredder, where the straw is cut into lengths of 50-150 mm. After the shredder stones and other larger particles are removed in the stone trap. The straw then enters into the special hammer mill, where it is reduced to 10-20 mm long particles before entering the buffer silo through a cyclone/filter. Sand is also removed in the screw conveyor just before the dosing silo.
Silo and dosing system
Level sensors in the silo or the buffer system sends a signal to the control system for automatic start of the briquetting press, when a sufficient level of straw in the silo has been reached. Signals from the level sensors will stop and start the transport line and the shredder automatically, in order to maintain sufficient level of straw in the silo. The entire system is automatically shut down if/when the transport line is empty.
Briquette press details
The briquetting technology is based on C.F. Nielsen’s long experience with briquetting technology. Read more about the briquetting presses here.
