Reduce fossil fuel usage
Given current trends, it is inevitable that regulation of CO2 emissions is going to tighten. As a result, there is a real push to reduce fossil fuel usage both in industry and in power generation. This means that new green fuels are being developed. The range of bulk materials handling products from Renby are geared to giving you the enabling technology for handling alternative fuels projects.
At present there is well over 100 years experience of handling fuels such as coal. Such systems are now designed with ease. However, with the increasing use of alternative fuels, such as Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), chicken litter, shredded wood waste, meat and bone meal (MBM), Pasteurised Sewage Pellets (PSP) etc. These materials do not flow like traditional powders and bulk materials and require a totally new approach to handling them.
Renby’s range of intake products are designed to facilitate the intake of alternative fuels and other bulky solids into your process. For instance, The Toploader can be erected on a flat slab of concrete, allowing lorries to reverse in, deliver their materials and drive off within minutes. The Toploader then automatically feeds material into your process, making the alternative fuel flow into your fuel handling system.
Similarly, the Spirofloor® can be designed to automate the reception and handling of vast volumes of materials. This can operate at higher throughputs than The Toploader so the choice of system is often governed by the requirements of the process.
Several cement works have used the Schrage tube chain conveyor to handle MBM. This is notoriously difficult to handle and yet is conveyed with ease through a tube chain conveyor. Similarly, the tube chain conveyor is excellent for ash handling and energy efficient, maximising power available to the rest of your process or for export.
Traditional fuel halls can be very dusty areas where material is moved around by front loader. Each load into and out of the bucket generates significant airborne dust. The air in such areas can be cleaned up by using the Renby MicronFogTM system. This uses microscopic droplets of water to agglomerate the dust, forcing it to fall out of the air.
Our aim is to work with your team to create the solution that resolves the problems of automatically transferring bulk materials from road / rail and into your process.
