Case Study #3

Case Study No.: 50100164
Application: Waste-to-Energy Plant

The customer’s waste-to-energy plant facility provides dependable, environmentally safe disposal of municipal solid waste for 290,000 residents, while generating clean, renewable electrify for sale to the local utility.

The conveyor that transport fly ash (by-product from the incinerated residential and commercial waste) was having trouble with the competitor’s backstop on the head shaft where the unit was leaking oil and there was a concern it would fail without notice and cause an unplanned stop to the operation.

Tsubaki engineering reviewed the application, confirmed the motor HP and conveyor speed and recommended our BS160HS with the I-beam torque arm. Because of the need to avoid a sudden breakdown, the key factor was speed of delivery – the product was received after 9 days of drawing approval and installed as a drop in and has been operating smoothly. The customer avoided a potential down time situation
