Walnut Creek Case Study
(WCP), a producer of one-of-a-kind finished goods including doors, stairs, furniture and butcher blocks, installed a RUF Wood Briquetter in its Ohio facility. The briquetting process has created a new business line for WCP and allowed WCP to reuse products in its manufacturing process.
Briquette Quality and Durability Across Multiple Feedstocks
Pellet Fuels Institute will assess the adaptability of RUF Briquetting Systems commercial biomass briquetting equipment for use in or near woods to process a variety of forest residue types. (RUF briquetters have a long history of use in both Europe and the U.S. and were originally designed to utilize waste bark.) Forest residues that have been comminuted in the woods will be processed into densified briquettes and torrefied wood will be tested as a feedstock for briquetting. Modifications needed for field operation will be evaluated and/or implemented. Pellet Fuels Institute will address issues inherent in creating a field deployable system, including the necessary support and material handling equipment.
Ultimate Training Munitions
(UTM), a producer of high-performance training ammunition and safety systems installed a RUF briquetter in its U.S. factory to manage their oily aluminum turnings. Read about results UTM realized in factory efficiency and scrap revenue.
