Grinder ideal for biomass applications
The Model G2100-26-400 Grinder is the largest and the latest generation of Warren & Baerg’s high production, virtually dust-free square bale grinders. The G2100-26-400 Grinder model is ideal for biomass processing applications and is designed specifically to feed two 4-foot by 4-foot by 8-foot bales side by side, allowing users the ability to blend two different types of material at the same time.
Warren & Baerg says many of their new customers are switching from a tub grinder (or other multi-stage grind system) to horizontal grinding systems, to reduce or eliminate dust problems, reduce horsepower, manpower, and maintenance cost, as well as reduce material losses by between 1 and 6 percent. The G2100-26-400 can be used either as a high volume pre-grinder or as a one-step single grinder system, using as low as 1/8-inch screens.
The Warren & Baerg Grinding System consists of a bale feed conveyor with dust hood, grinder, screens, and either an air discharge chute or takeaway conveyor, depending on customer specific needs and grind size. The feed systems are mechanically loaded or can be semi-automatic, and units are electrically powered with two 200-hp motors.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
