Fuel feeding systems

Fuel feeding systems for demanding applications

Fuel feeding systems are used for conveying materials from day silos to boilers in power plants. Their size and capacity vary according to the amount of needed feeding points and storage.

We offer different options for fuel storage and reclaiming depending on the material characteristics. Laitex rotating screw reclaimers are available for silos with diameters from 5 to 15 meters. The fuel can be fed from the silo to the balancing bin with a chain conveyor or screw conveyor. Accurate fuel feeding is achieved with a screw feeder. In addition, uniquely designed heavy duty rotary valves are optimised for demanding fuel feeding.
