The energy efficient solid matter feeder for cost-effective digester feeding
Liquid feeding system CC-Mix for biogas applications
Unproblematic, energy-rich biomass is desirable and valuable. For efficient biogas production, it is especially important to feed them in with a minimum of effort but with the best possible preparation. The CC-Mix excels at doing exactly that. Thanks to its carefully thought out concept, solid matter is mixed with the liquid suspension to form a homogeneous suspension, with minimal power requirements. The CC-Mix thus provides the conditions which are necessary for optimum fermentation in the digester.
This makes the CC-Mix to a cost-effective solid matter feeder for renewable resources and solid matter which can flow (such as maize silage and grain waste) through to other, slightly pasty input materials such as fruit and vegetable waste, sugar beet pulp or dry chicken manure. These get into the CC-Mix via a screw conveyor whose mixing chamber and mixing shaft are made of corrosion resistant stainless steel.
Thanks to the new design, a power of only 11-15 kW is needed to create an ideally mashed organic suspension suitable for bacteria. The integrated foreign matter separator keeps heavy material back, avoiding damage by foreign matter. As the biomass is provided in a pumpable form, it is no problem to feed several digesters from one CC-Mix.
Its installation and integration is uncomplicated both in new as well as in existing systems. Owing to its compact construction, only a few square meters are required to erect the CC-Mix - including space for service and maintenance work. In connection with a PCU control unit from Vogelsang, all of the components, including the sensors and safety components, are available to automate the solid matter feeder.
