Chapter 10: BiomassHandling System

Engineering October 2, 2009
Why is the Handling System soimportant?
Metering the fuel feed system is animportant aspect of the biomassgasification plant because it is used tocontrol the entire process.
The handling system controls the flow rateof fuel into the gasifier. If the flow isvariable then the gasifier will not maintainthe desired temperatures and will not beas efficient.
The problem
Unlike liquids, the biomass solids do notdeform under shear stresses (causes jamming) and this is why the storage andhandling of biomass is so important.
Reasons for many shutdown incidents of biomass gasifier plants can be traced tothe failure of the biomass handling system.
Some biomass contains rocks and other debris when it arrives at the plant.
