Conveying Bottom Ash

Customer Challenge

In 1986, a waste-fired cogeneration power plant that provides heating, cooling, electric power and other utility services to local buildings, purchased a Slipstick Industrial Horizontal Motion Conveyor to transport bottom ash from their municipal solid waste mass burn incinerator to their belt conveyor. With dimensions of 36” W x 10”D x 77’-6”L, the Slipstick pan was fabricated with AR400 to withstand temperature ranges from 0° F to 200° F and included splash guards to minimize spillage at the incinerator’s feed points. Twenty two years later, our customer reached out to Triple/S Dynamics to modify the existing conveyor to increase capacity by extending the length of the pan and upgrading the drive.

Triple/S Solution

Triple/S Dynamics collaborated with the customer to design the pan extension, adding an additional 50’-0” feet. Simultaneously, the Slipstick differential drive was upgraded from a #20 to #24H to accommodate the increased capacity and pan length.
