Article Published in Ethanol Producer Magazie!

We recently had the opportunity to write about our solutions for DDGS storage in Ethanol Producer magazine. In this piece, we explain some challengers producers face in regards to storage and three possible solutions: optimizing the DDGS storage building, storing DDGS in containers, and retrofitting the DDGS storage building with moving floors. http://ethanolproducer.com/articles/16108/ddgs-options-to-optimize

Roller Debarkers vs. Drum Debarkers

When roller debarkers were introduced in the ’90s, they quickly passed drum debarkers as the on-mass debarker of choice for debarking large volumes of pulpwood. But people cling to what they know, and some companies still maintain and buy new drum debarkers. There’s a number of reasons why roller debarkers surpassed drums. They save on […]

How and Why Rotary Debarkers Came to North American Paper Mills

Before roller debarkers (rotary debarkers) were introduced to the North American paper industry in the late ’90s, the industry lacked good solutions to debark logs in northern climates, where temperatures averaged well below freezing during winter. Dennis Widdifield, a sales engineering with Biomass Engineering & Equipment, worked for Boise Cascade in Ontario at that time, […]

Nine Reasons We Call It A ‘SMART’ Conveyor

Is your conveyor up to the task of today’s material handling? The wood industry has seen major improvements in terms of processing and production machinery, but material handling equipment has largely lagged. The technology of 20 and 30 years ago simply isn’t up to the expectations of today’s industries. That’s where we come in. We’ve […]

Problems with Single-Chain Conveyors

Drag conveyors come in two general styles: single chain or twin chain. Single-chain drag conveyors normally drag a chain with a series flights and paddles over the floor of the conveyor. Twin-chain conveyors employ two chains that run in parallel and carry paddles between them. Most drag conveyors fit into the single-chain category due to […]

How to Extend the Life of Your Conveyor

So you don’t have a SMART Conveyor. In fact, your conveyor is pretty dumb. It’s noisy. It’s inefficient. It requires too much attention. But you’re stuck with it. Is there anything you can do to help it run well (or at least better) for as long as possible? There is. This blog is written by […]
