Application

The waste storage bunker in the reception hall is an important part of the EFW incineration plant. Its purpose is to provide a place to store, buffer and uniformly mix the delivered waste and ensure a continuous supply of waste to the incinerator. A grab crane transports the waste to the feed chute of the furnace. To ensure efficient operation of the plant, a reliable and accurate level measuring system is required in the waste storage bunker. In addition, the level in the feed chute must be monitored to protect against a blowback of flue gas.

Your benefit

Reliable
Protection against flue gas blowback through uniform filling of the feed chute
Cost effective
Optimal utilization of the bunker capacity by ensuring steady, even filling
User friendly
Constantly updated measurement data allows easy control of the grab crane
