BRUKS has been awarded the design and supply of an Air Supported Belt Conveyor system to handle wood pellets at DRAX’s LaSalle BioEnergy Facility. As part of a new rail load-out system, BRUKS is supplying two TUBULATOR™ conveyors and a transfer tower to handle up to 300 MTPH of wood pellets. The TUBULATOR provides a number of benefits for this project:
- The enclosed design protects the finished pellets from the elements, as well as mitigates dusting.
- The Air Supported Design eliminates idlers and reduces the chance of fires.
- The use of cable towers allowed us to span further distances between supports, reducing foundation costs.
Completed delivery is scheduled for Fall 2018.
