FMW Sludge Storage Solution – FMW Longitudinal Discharge Screw


Meeting the Growing Demands

The bioenergy industry is rapidly growing, and efficient material handling is crucial for businesses looking to stay competitive and thrive. A common problem faced by many companies in this sector is inefficient material discharge and storage space optimization in silos, leading to material spillage, wasted storage space, and concerns with heavy materials or high wear.

The Unique Design of FMW’s Travelling Screw

The Travelling Screw is designed with a V-shaped silo, ensuring efficient use of storage space while minimizing material spillage. Its longitudinally movable screw conveyor allows for smooth and controlled discharge of material from the silo. This unique design makes it particularly valuable in handling heavy materials or situations where wear and pressure concerns make other configurations less suitable.

Key Features of a Longitudinal Discharge System

  • 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 Longitudinal Discharge System can be customized to accommodate various biomass materials, as well as different storage vessel sizes and discharge rates.

How it works:

The operational concept of the Traveling Screw entails a screw conveyor situated within the silo, featuring a V-shaped configuration that moves along its length to enable the efficient discharge of materials from the silo. The V-shaped structure of the silo walls helps prevent any spillage, as the material naturally adheres to the angle of repose.
