Feeding technology

The Easyfeeder SOLO solids feeding system is designed for feeding the digester with renewable raw materials, such as grass and maize silage or similar biomass. But also partial amounts of more challenging materials, such as all kinds of manure, can be added without difficulty.

A loader fills solids into the hopper of the Easyfeeder Solo. The feeding volume can be increased by installing an attachment on the hopper. Inside the hopper, the separating screws break up and pre-dose the feedstock. The main screw conveyor efficiently transports the feedstock into the digester in large volumes.
Already during the development of the tried-and-tested feeding technology, the focus was on minimising energy consumption and wear. Minimal running times ensure the lowest possible wear and reduced power consumption. In a 2009 study conducted by the Landesanstalt für Landwirtschaft (Bavarian State Research Centre for Agriculture) in Freising, in which 10 biogas plants were tested over a long period of time, our feeding technology proved to be a real energy saver compared to solids feeders from other manufacturers.

Our feeding technology is characterised by a simple and sturdy design which makes the solids feeder particularly user friendly and easy to maintain.
The system can be controlled directly at the unit, via an optional stand-alone control cabinet or using the main control system of the biogas plant depending on the specific project. The user only has to program the pause and operating times. When equipped with an (optional) scale, the system can be controlled based on weight.
All drives are equipped with an adjustable load monitoring function. The interval control with automatic reversing function in the event of overload ensures smooth and trouble-free operation. At 0.1 to 0.3 kW/m³, the Easyfeeder Solo is extremely energy-efficient.
