Belts for Conveying Biomass – The Safety and critical Importance of Conveyor Belt Technology

By L. Williams For a great many reasons, the conveyor belts used to convey coal or other bulk materials are highly unlikely to be suitable for carrying biomass. Sadly some very expensive lessons are already being learnt. Here Les Williams of Dunlop Conveyor Belting discusses the essential and very specific characteristics that biomass-carrying belts must have in order to perform safely and efficiently.

SWR engineering: Moisture Measurement in Wood Pellet Production to ensure Material Quality

Schliengen, Germany – A manufacturer of wood pellets processes raw materials such as planing chips or wood chips (wood waste) to produce wood pellets. To ensure optimal adjustment of the drying process, the company uses SWR engineering‘s M-Sens 2 moisture sensor. The moisture is measured while the material is transported by a screw conveyor from the oven to the storage silo.
