Biomass Preparation System

Biomass Preparation System

The unique challenges of biomass containment

A Biomass Preparation System is also known as a micronizer. It refers to a wide array of plant materials such as grasses and crop residues that are most often used as fuel or feedstock. It represents a particular materials handling challenge because of the fact that process systems typically demand a uniformity of several parameters such as particle size, moisture content, and density, but when harvested or delivered biomass crops such as wood chips, grasses, stalks, and corn cobs are anything but uniform.

Under normal operating conditions biomass is also a very challenging material to handle, process, and store as its resistance to being moved often causes problems for receiving and processing equipment. Whether it is handled dry or wet, each scenario represents a particular set of challenges to be considered so it can be processed and properly converted into mulch, feed, or fuel.
