The Schenck Process Alternative Fuel Feeding system for cement manufacturers provides the environmentally friendly solution. Key to the system is the ability to Schenck-400
meter waste materials such as PET bottles, saw dust, tires, paper, wood chips, rice, bone meal, and others to the main burner and calciner of a cement kiln reducing the need for non-renewable fossil fuels such as coal.

Schenck Process offers a modular alternative fuel feeding system that consists of a docking station with live bottom bin for semi-trailers, chain conveyor, weighfeeder, blow-through rotary feeder, rotary piston blower, pneumatic conveying line, and measuring, control, and supervisory electronics for continuous operation.

The semi-mobile system features a small footprint so no special foundations are necessary and can be set up on virtually any firm surface where a truck can drive. Placement of the system is possible next to the kiln or up to a distance of 300 ft. from the burner. Dismantling and reconstructing in any other part of the plant can be done within a short period of time.

Critical features of the system include precise accuracies, a wide range of feed rates, and consistent flow of material to the kiln. Accuracies of ±1 percent within a range of 1:20 and feed rates from 0.25 to 10 tph help produce an even and pulsation free conveying of fuel through the blow-through rotary feeder.

This consistency and the overall environmental impact of the alternative fuel feeding system make it a logical fit for cement manufacturing operations, according to the company.
