Robust grinder prevents shutdown of system due to coarse material in the biomass or sludge

In order to be economically viable, biogas plants today must be able to be operated using a variety of energy crops and bio waste. However, changing sources can rapidly become a problem for the operating company. The consistency and composition of the biomass is always changing and therefore difficult to predict. Coarse material may continue to block lines and pumps – a phenomenon that the operating company of sewage plants must regularly combat. From this experience, NETZSCH has developed different series of grinders in order to protect the units installed downstream and, thus, increase the reliability of the process.
