FMW Biomass Storage Solution – A-Frame Storage


Optimizing Biomass Storage and Discharge: Efficiently Manage and Control Biomass Material Flow

The bioenergy industry is experiencing rapid growth, with the global market expected to reach $217.8 billion by 2030. This expansion is driven by the increasing demand for renewable energy sources and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, one common challenge faced by operations management in the bioenergy sector is the inefficient discharge of biomass materials from storage silos, bins, or hoppers, leading to uneven distribution, blockages, and downtime.  One of the mostly used solutions? FMW’s A-Frame Storage, Round-Silo Storage and also the Stacker/Reclaimer System.

Introducing the A-Frame Storage

The A-Frame Storage is a linear storage solution with a discharge screw. The Screw is designed for the controlled discharge of bulk materials, such as biomass, from storage vessels. It operates on the principle of utilizing a helical screw or auger to extract biomass material from the storage container, ensuring a controlled and continuous material flow. This customizable solution offers precise discharge, reduced material compaction, and a design tailored to accommodate various biomass materials and storage vessel sizes.

Key Features of a A-Frame Storage

  • Precise Discharge: This system offers precise control over the rate and quantity of material discharge, facilitating efficient downstream processing.
  • Reduced Material Compaction: The design minimizes material compaction during the discharge process, helping to maintain the quality of the biomass material.
  • Customizable Design: The System can be customized to accommodate various biomass materials, as well as different storage vessel sizes and discharge rates.

How it works:

The A-Frame Storage system works by stacking wood chips linear, optimizing the storage capacity with a limited pile height. The discharge capacity can be adjusted according to your needs, ensuring a consistent flow of material for your processes.
