The two Samson® Material Feeders ordered from AUMUND Ltda in São Paulo, Brazil, by first-time customer ComBio Energia S.A. are also the first machines of their kind to be operated for biomass handling in energy generation in South America.
ComBio develops projects using biomass for generation of steam and cogeneration of electrical energy for customers from various industries.
The two Samson® Material Feeders are destined for a customer in the food sector with whom ComBio has an agreement for energy generation at its new plant in the state of São Paulo. The Feeders will be operating 24 hours a day with a capacity of 510 m3/h for handling various biomass materials.
Due to its versatility, high transport capacity, low energy consumption and design robustness, the Samson® Material Feeder reduces the risk of biomass clogging during material intake and transport.
Supply is planned for April and commissioning is due to take place in the second half of this year.
