Part of the project is a new single-pass drum dryer with the capacity of 400 t/day dried beet pulp, as well as 3 pieces of the pellet mills with a capacity 8-9 t/day each, both from well-known German manufacturers. Therefore, the customer realizes to reconstruct 2 warehouses with a storage capacity of up to 10.000 tons each, a pelletizing department, and a packaging station with the capacity 350 t/day to fill pellets into bags.

For the enclosed vertical transport of wet pressed beet-pulp, between the two existing pulp presses and the new feeding hopper, Loibl Förderanlagen GmbH delivers a suitable vertical screw conveyor with a diameter of 1.000 mm, length of approx 12.000 mm, with a frequency-controlled motor and a horizontal feeding screw with a diameter of 800 mm.
Due to the Loibl’s design and arrangement it was possible to install a conveying system in a limited area and as an alternative to a planned inclined rake conveyor. Both screw conveyors designed in stainless steel to minimize corrosion.
