Hey everyone, I wanted to share a video I took on our Canadian Demonstration Site in Alberta a few weeks ago.   I realize this might get flagged as marketing, however, I thought people on this forum would find value in it.

This is our BET (BioMass Energy Techniques Inc.) 24 PRD (Pyrolysis Rotary Drum).  It uses our primary BET 24-S gasification unit on the front end to generate the thermal energy for the Drum.  All the gases produced by the feedstocks traveling through the Drum are completely combusted in our Oxidizer chamber.

Throughput on the primary side is up to 285lbs/hr and the throughput on the drum is up to 2,000 lbs/hr.  The screen size for both feedstocks is 2inch minus.

This unit was used for testing different feedstocks for potential clients.  They could choose 1 of 3 options for Emissions testing and Biochar testing.

As I mention in the video the Natural gas or Propane modulating burner , in this case, was only used to get the Oxidizer up to temperature.  Once it reached a set point (850 degrees C) it shut off and maintained by the gas/energy off the feedstock in the Drum.

Please reach out if you have questions.
