Wood pellets, a valuable byproduct of Canada’s paper industry, need to be stored in a way that provides maximum protection from the elements. This producer in New Brunswick made the smart choice: They selected two SCAFCO Grain Systems Company hopper silos with letdown ladders and one silo on a custom load-out structure with a sifter on top.
SCAFCO elevators and incline chain conveyors are used to both load and unload these silos. This enables a receiving rate of 25 MTPH and a discharge rate of 100 MTPH. SCAFCO also provided elevator support towers at this site.
