When space runs short for DDGS, ethanol producers typically opt to build additional silos. The same decision occurs when producers begin a new line of coproducts. There are, however, other options for expanding storage, dividing storage, and automating loadout in the process. In this free resource, we explain an option for doing this by making […]
It’s understood that the components in a drag chain conveyor affect its operational costs. A conveyor’s finish does the same. Rust—the quick-to-form result of a poor choice in finish—can lead to costly repairs, downtime, and mess if it forms holes through which material can escape. Ultimately, rust can shorten the useful life of a conveyor. […]
We recently installed a dual trailer-loading station at Great Southern Wood Preserving (YellaWood) in Glenwood, Arkansas. The system, which utilizes our SMART Conveyors, is running smoothly as it fills up trailers with live-stream wood waste. Watch below!
If a machine could save you more than $300,000 in two years, would it be worth purchasing? Probably. With savings like that, you could likely convince your CFO to make the investment. Yet ethanol producers often lose out on savings of this magnitude because they overlook the lifetime cost of ownership of equipment they purchase, […]
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
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 […]
Thank you, American Wood Fibers! We’re shipping out this SMART Container system that will allow AWF to automate and meter their material output.
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, […]
Biomass Engineering & Equipment has put together a short Ebook that outlines options to increase DDGS storage at facilities that rely on rail shipments. In this resource, we explain: Ways to better utilize your current DDGS storage building, Options to increase true storage capacity without silos, and How to get rid of your wheel loader in the process. What’s there to lose? Click the […]
SMART Containers are a great solution for storing and feeding your material. We have refined our system into a modular approach that allows you to scale the package to the size you need now and easily increase the capacity in the future. Installation is a snap because everything is made ready to set on a simple foundation. You […]
