Many wood processing companies use their wood waste as a costefficient fuel in biomass heating systems. The problem of conventional storage systems is the resuspension of explosive dust/air mixtures.
The new generation of System KURRI silo filling systems was specially designed to eliminate this danger.

Functional schematic

From the filtration plant the sucked off material is transported via an ATEX proof rotary valve into the System KURRI silo filling system. The feeding screw transports the material to the vertical screw conveyor, which fills the silo from bottom to top.
The horizontal spreading auger in the upper section of the silo is used to optimize the silo ́s filling volume.

Advantages of System KURRI silo filling systems

Cost-efficient and flexible
Suitable for almost any structural situation. Present silo facilities can remain largely unaffected.

Economic
Any production waste of wood processing companies - from milling chips and wood shavings to sanding dust - can easily be stored in silos or bunkers up to 10m height for later thermal utilisation.

Save
Our innovative construction using a cage-guided vertical screw conveyor inhibits whirling up of explosive dust/air mixtures matching actual safety standards. The rotational speed of the augers is precisely adjusted not to cause any sparks or other ignition points. Even when material cones slip down inside the silo no dust will be blown up.

Efficient
Consulting, planning, filing, building and assembling – all from one single competent source!
