Biomass CHP (combined heat and power) plants, also known as biomass cogeneration plants, generate electrical energy from biogenic solids and a great amount of additional heat that can be used efficiently. The biomass must be mechanically processed in advance to obtain a homogeneous unit that is free of impurities, ensuring that the combustion process runs smoothly.
Goudsmit Magnetics Group recently upgraded the magnetic head pulley separators, increasing the generated magnetic force to over 9000 gauss. These high gradient separators remove weakly magnetic particles and paramagnetic particles up to around 10-15 mm from bulk and recycling flows. This includes bits of stainless steel from shredded WEEE, ASR and plastic flows.
