Material Handling Solutions for WDDGS

Storage for wet cake / WDDGS - a coproduct of ethanol

Wet Cake / WDDGS isn’t the easiest material to convey. It’s heavy. It’s sloppy. It takes a lot of power to transfer. You may have run across the following issues with these types of transfer equipment:
Screw Conveyors:

  • Inefficient, except for short distances without inclines

Belt Conveyors:

  • Messy tailings
  • Low angle of repose
  • Higher energy requirements than other options

Pneumatic Conveyors:

  • Not ideal for moist material
  • Messy when a leak forms
  • Very high energy requirements
  • Adds emissions points
  • Requires bagging for emissions

You can eliminate these problems, reduce energy consumption, and reduce emissions by replacing your current wet cake handling system with SMART Conveyors™ from Biomass Engineering & Equipment. Our drag conveyors are highly efficientclean (dust-tight), and produce no emissions.
Unlike with other drag systems, the paddles in SMART Conveyors™ don’t touch the bottom panels or sidewalls, which increases the life of these components. It also reduces friction, which increases efficiency.
