Bruks Will Install Truck-Receiving In Greenwood

Bruks Siwertell reports it secured a truck-receiving system order from industrial wood pellet producer Enviva for the plant at Greenwood, SC.

The order includes a back-on truck dumper, with receiving hopper and collecting belt conveyor, and modifications to an existing screen tower to accommodate the new truck-receiving system.

At the site, logs are loaded, debarked and processed using a Bruks drum chipper. Working alongside this, the plant also receives already chipped wood, which ensures a continuous flow of inbound material; this is currently handled by a single Bruks back-on truck dumper. The new truck-receiving system will work alongside the existing unit and each has the capacity to unload wood chips at 130 metric tons per hour.

Trucks tip their load as close to the ground as possible. Gently handling the wood reduces dust emissions by minimizing the impact of material flowing out the truck and landing in the hopper. Bruks’ systems also deliver quick cycle times, which enhances efficiency and keeps truck traffic to a minimum.
