High Pressure, Low Pressure and Vacuum Conveying Systems for Pulp and Paper Mills or Biomass Systems and for Boiler Direct Injection Systems
Pneumatic conveying can efficiently move chips, bark, and RDF bulk material over a long distance, elevate it in a short distance, or inject woody material directly into a boiler. Pneumatic conveying rates of more than 1,000 tons per hour can be achieved with these systems. Jeffrey Rader designs ruggedly built rotary valves, cyclones, wear back elbows, ducting and blowers for tough, high-pressure, high-volume and abrasive pneumatic conveying applications.
The original Rader Company was founded on Pneumatics, and today Jeffrey Rader is considered a leading authority on high-pressure pneumatic conveying system design and application. With more than 50 years of experience and 10,000 installations in pulp and paper mills around the world, Jeffrey Rader has the application knowledge to design and build your pneumatic conveying systems.
Our test units are available for customers looking to test burn alternative fuels in their existing boilers. The system is designed to be portable, capable of being put on a standard flat bed truck for moving to different locations. This unit can also be permanently mounted for smaller biomass burning applications.
This is a very economical way to get good accuracy when feeding delivering material to a boiler or process, while providing plenty of flexibility in handling a variety of fuels. The system is skid mounted with a hopper system for introducing the material into the system. A twin screw will feed the material either directly into a pneumatic system or onto a weigh belt feeder (when greater accuracy is required). The material is then blown directly into a boiler or kiln or discharged through a cyclone (when mechanical feed is used). The system comes with an optional control system for "plug and play" capability. Other options include a Walking Floor Trailer System that eliminates the manual loading of the hopper by a front end loader are available.
