Continuous Feed Systems

The Komar continuous plug feed systems offer the unique ability to provide a metered feed while eliminating air transfer thru the feeder.  Our feeders utilize the extruded material to generate the air seal and provide unmatched feed control.  Developed for feeding incinerators, and proven for more than 30 years in difficult applications such as hazardous and radioactive waste.  The systems have also been adapted to plasma, gasification, pyrolysis, and waste to energy applications.

TYPES

Stand-Alone Feeders

electromechanical feeder

Drive Type:
Electromechanical
Application:
Pilot Scale or Small Incineration and Gasification
Volume:
Low-Medium (200-1000 lbs/hr)  low-medium volume processing
Turn Down Ratio:
2:1 (or 50% of full displacement)
Feed Stock:
Consistent and Compressable
*Designs can vary based on material and application.

Model Motor Type Tube Inner Diameter Horsepower
EF-6-10 Electromechanical 6″ 10
EF-8-10 Electromechanical 8″ 10
EF-12-20 Electromechanical 12″ 20
EF-18-20 Electromechanical 18″ 20

hydraulic feeder

Drive Type:
Hydraulic
Application:
Incineration and Gasification
Volume:
Medium (200-12000 lbs/hr)  medium volume processing
Turn Down Ratio:
10:1 (or 10% of full displacement)
Feed Stock:
Can handle a wider variety of material types and volumes than electromechanical feeders, while still maintaining the selected feed rate.
Injector:
Added when batch material input needs to be metered through a small diameter output, achieving a very high level of feed control.
*Designs can vary based on material and application.

Model Motor Type Tube Inner Diameter Horsepower
HF-12-40 Hydraulic 12″ 40
HF-18-75 Hydraulic 18″ 75
HF-20-100 Hydraulic 20″ 100
HF-24-100 Hydraulic 24″ 100
HF-36-200 Hydraulic 36″ 200
HF-42-400 Hydraulic 42″ 400

Multi-Stage Processing Systems

shred-feed systems

Drive Type:
Electromechanical and Hydraulic
Application:
Incineration and Gasification
Volume:
Medium-High (500-50,000 lbs/hr ) medium-high volume processing
Turn Down Ratio:
10:1
Feed Stock:
A shredder is added to a hydraulic feeder when material is either too large to initially fit into the feeder’s processing chamber, or when a consistent piece size is needed for a more successful feed.

palletized hazardous waste

Drive Types:
Hydrostatic
Applications:
Incineration and Gasification
Volume:
High (10,000-50,000 lbs/hr)  high volume processing
Turn Down Ratio:
10:1
Feed Stock:C
Containerized hazardous solids, liquids, or resins that need to be thoroughly blended before feeding to obtain a higher level of consistency.  Systems can handle up to four drums or one cubic yard per charge.
