Ancillary Products

Surge Tank is offered in a variety of different sizes with two options. A live bottom auguring system, or a round bottom blending system. The live bottom has 4 directional, or bi-directional augers that keep the material moving, thus eliminating bridging that occurs with light or fluffy materials. The round bottom is an ideal tank for blending and mixing. A variable frequency drive controls the discharge into the pellet mill. Liquid additive system is available upon request.

* The estimated capacities used here are for reference purposes and are based on a generic biomass mix that has been properly prepared for pelleting. We have done testing with many different types of biomass and have found a large variance in capacity based on the type and preparation of material.
