Screw Metering Bins: Getting the Most Efficient Design

screw metering bins

An important component in any plant is fuel control and metering. And a key component of metering are the screw metering bins that store fuel and allow for steady regulation of fuel for better combustion control.

No one wants to use an excess of fuel – or use too little. Precision and accuracy are key, and those come from thoughtful, deliberate, and effective engineering and design. Finding screw metering bins that meet this criteria is crucial for solid combustion rates and lower emissions.

ProcessBarron produces screw metering bins that help store and regulate fuel. Our unique design eliminates common issues with screw metering bins and helps ensure consistency in performance. Here’s more on obtaining the best design for the screw metering bins in your plant.

Custom Design for Custom Performance

Off-the-shelf solutions can work in a pinch, but it is preferable to have a custom-designed piece of equipment that is uniquely engineered for your needs and specifications.

Our custom-designed screw metering bins include several features, such as:

  • Minimal plugging
  • Fewer interruptions of fuel feed from the main storage area
  • Variable speed controlled screws
  • Abrasion-resistant ceramic coating or chromium carbide overlay

Each piece is engineered with a specific set of circumstances and specifications in mind. The result is a rugged, durable, and efficient piece of machinery that can better store and distribute fuel in a smooth and proper manner to help maintain consistency in performance.

Precision and Control

Screw metering bins not only need to meet specs and last a long time; they also need to offer precise control.

Our bins give a plant the ability to meter fuel into the fuel combustion area for a variety of firing rates in a precise and controlled manner. More precision and control means less fuel wasted and more consistent combustion – as well as lower boiler emissions overall.
