WAMGROUP Equipment in Biomass Plants
The Perkins Bio Fuel Chicken Manure Biomass Plant,in Hereford, was set up in June 2015.
The biomass burner started production in February 2018.The Farm houses 750,000 chickens on a 38-day turnaround from hatch to poultry.
Energy Innovations installed a biomass plant to burn the litter produced by the chickens. Two 8.5 m-long SSC Shaftless Screw Conveyors are flood-fed by a drag arm and feed in their turn a 10.6 m long SSC Shaftless Screw, which conveys the manure toward the burner.
The equipment layout had to be designed around 2 separate loading bays, which are divided by a thick wall. To adhere to this, WAM Engineering fitted one SSC Shaftless Screw Conveyor each per loading bay, individually fed by a drag arm.
