Waste Material Processing
Rowlands Woodhouse designs and supplies purpose built systems to either allow the return of the waste product back in a process line, or to separate and clean the waste materials for resale or as a fuel.
Rowlands Woodhouse designs, supplies and installs systems for:
- Turnkey process requirements
- Material separation – magnetic, non-magnetic, air
- Sizing materials – vibratory screens
- Size reduction – grinding, pulverizing, shredding
- Drying – drum drying
- Raw and finished product storage
Drum dryers are normally used within process systems and depending on the materials, can be manufactured from carbon steels or a combination of carbon and stainless steel.
The drying medium is dry steam and uses a recirculation system that efficiently and cost effectively removes moisture. The dryers may be used in most industries, including biomass. For materials that are very high in moisture content, a belt or screw press may be used prior to the drum dryer to help make the running more cost effective.
Bio Mass Systems
Rowlands Woodhouse have used their extensive knowledge of storage, handling and processing of many different types of materials and applied them to Bio Mass and Bio Fuel production.
Rowlands have experience in:-
- Bio Mass storage and out-loading
- Material handling systems
- Material reduction
- Manufacture of pellets and briquettes
- Co-firing (power stations)
Rowlands Woodhouse are able to retrofit or replace pelleting system or items within existing mills or production facilities.
Normally for biomass pellets, the systems are for a new build on a single or two levels, using a floor structure or supporting steelwork with access areas.
Pelleting systems may be split into two areas:-
- Mill production- waste – animal feed
- Biomass pellets
Certain types of biomass are very abrasive and aggressive. Rowlands Woodhouse takes this into consideration when designing a system, using the appropriate equipment and the materials they are manufactured from.
Materials Handling Systems
Rowlands Woodhouse offers a personalised service in material handling systems and their solutions. With over 35 years’ experience in plant design, manufacture, installation and commissioning, the material handling systems exceed on quality and performance.
- Initial design consultations
- Full turnkey project management (design, manufacture, install, commission)
- Design/fabrication to suit all applications
- Site evaluation
- Design to specification and customer requirements
Handling Systems comprise:
- Conveyor and elevator systems
- Pneumatic conveying
- Storage vessels – silos, bins, tanks, hoppers
- Bagging/Packing machines
- Screens for material sizing or cleaning
- Blending and weighing bins
- Weighing and batching systems
- Filters – dust and fume extraction
Blending systems are normally weighers or hoppers that are fed with multiple materials, normally by conveyors from storage silos or bins. Additives may also be added if required to give a formulated batch. The type of system for blending materials will vary depending on the project requirements.
The filtration system and associated ducting is designed to suit your individual application and plant layout, however in certain circumstances, individual filters may be used.
Filters that are usually connected to production equipment are the reverse jet filter type, and for non-production shaker filters are sometimes used. There are different types of filtration media used depending on the applications, and supplied in cartridge or bag configurations.
These systems are normally used for:
- Dust extraction
- Air release – silos and bins
- Odour control
- Removal of fumes
