11-metre-long quadruple multiscrew feederAjax included a number of features to ensure reliable handling in this waste-to-energy process.
With four 11-metre-long screws in a casing 3.6 metres wide, Ajax’s biggest multiscrew feeder truly is an impressive piece of solids handling machinery,” said Eddie McGee.
The mild steel feeder will transport refuse derived fuel from a hopper as part of a waste-to-energy process. As waste can be irregularly shaped as well as poor flow, Ajax included a number of features to ensure reliable handling.
Eddie commented, “The feeder’s design pays special attention to screw geometry and clearances. While over the outlet section the feeder includes relief overload flap plates should the subsequent conveyor fail to take the product away. In the event of maintenance, the feeder’s design allows one of the four screws to be removed and the machine to continue to operate at full plant rate .”
