  • ShurGreen to Add Solid Fuel Combustion System

    ShurGreen Farms is installing an industrial solid fuel combustion burner that yields low-cost, environmentally-sound, renewable, carbon-neutral fuels. The ONIX Corporation manufactures industrial solid fuel combustion burners rated to a maximum of 120 million Btu/hr. ​ These solid fuel systems can operate on multiple alternative fuel materials, yielding fuel costs of below $1.00/MM Btu. Including (but not limited to) • corn/corn cobs • dried peat moss • dried wood chips • horse manure • paper They reduce the threat of transmissible diseases, including highly pathogenic avian influenza (bird flu), swine flu, and other biosecurity issues. ​ The ONIX Corporation offers a full line of industrial solid fuel combustion burners rated to a maximum of 120 million Btu/hr. These cyclonic burners offer a renewable energy alternative with clean emissions that rival natural gas burner emissions. The staggering response time of these burners can control many fragile industrial operations, such as dryers, boilers, rotary kilns, and industrial air heaters. The combustion of solid fuel yields way to a world of low-cost, environmentally-sound, renewable carbon-neutral fuels. Existing fossil fuel burners can be retrofitted to enable industries to burn gas, liquid, or solid fuels. ​ About the ONIX Corporation The ONIX Corporation is a world-leading manufacturer of rotary drum dryers, alternative fuel systems, and green energy solutions.

  • ShurGreen To Add Biosecurity Truck Fleet Washing System

    ShurGreen Farms is installing a fleet truck washing biosecurity system that will thoroughly clean the undercarriage, wheels, chassis, tractor, and trailer of the vehicles and then thoroughly apply a sanitizer to the sides and undercarriage of the vehicle. Viruses such as HPAI and swine fever have the ability to devastate the industry, regardless of whether or not a facility is directly impacted by positive cases. In a report from the USDA, it was shown that “disease events can impact related industries even if the disease has no direct effect.” This places a soaring demand on implementing superior protection measures. We depend on transportation vehicles and need them to be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected against what could be an extremely expensive loss. ​ Transportation fleets that don’t follow a stringent cleaning process could play a direct role in furthering outbreaks, leading to trade restrictions and loss of income across all facilities. Proper biosecurity systems in place help prevent the spread of disease and shorten the length of time disease is spread. ​ About Hydro-Chem Systems At Hydro-Chem Systems, we help private fleet owners, municipalities, schools, farms, manufacturers, and mobile washers across North America clean their vehicles at the lowest cost per wash. We work hard to keep our clients’ maintenance minimal and their cost-per-wash low by manufacturing high-quality, extremely effective fleet & industrial cleaning detergents and equipment.

  • ShurGreen Adds a Baker-Rullman Triple-pass Rotary Drum Dryer

    Triple-Pass Technology Baker-Rullman Triple-Pass Technology remains the superior dehydration system by optimizing operating costs, efficiency, and end-product consistency. ​ STEP 1 Wet material enters the inner cylinder, propelled through the system via a hot gas air stream. The material is continuously lifted by the cylinder flights and showered through the concurrent stream of hot gases. The three full-length interlocked concentric cylinders rotate together designed for the highest velocity in the inner pass. As lighter particles quickly lose 60% of their moisture and move out of the cylinder, heavier, denser particles are retained until they lose 60% of their moisture. ​ STEP 2 Particles graduate to the next cylinder only when they have shed enough of their moisture to be carried out. Progressively larger diameters of the cylinders cause the velocity to decrease with each subsequent pass. In this section, the partially evaporated particles are handled more gently, again only graduating to the next pass when they have shed the proper amount of moisture. ​ STEP3 Because of the earlier retention time in the first two passes, the material is relatively uniform by the time it makes it into the gentle third pass. This means the product is guarded against over-drying or under-drying and ensures the optimum use of heat while producing a consistently high-quality end product. ​ Equipment Advantages Baker-Rullman’s energy-efficient, high-performance rotary dryers have developed a global reputation in ultimate reliability. Here are some key factors that have contributed to this unequaled record of dependable equipment Full-Length Cylinders - All three cylinders in the Baker-Rullman triple-pass dryer system are full-length, giving the customer the maximum effective length and residence time in the smallest possible package. Drive Components - The drum dryer drive arrangement uses engineering class bushed-roller chain and sprockets, specifically designed for this type of drive application. Trunnion Rollers - Our trunnion rollers are made from Class 50 cast iron with a minimum roller face hardness of 270 BHN. The inboard tapered roller bearings, which have a ‘B-1-’ life of 15 years, allow the roller to rotate around our stationary roller shaft supported by our hold-down pillow blocks. Baker-Rullman has proven this to be more reliable than the smaller diameter roller with an integral cast shaft system offered by our competition. Drum Tires - Baker-Rullman drum tires are designed and manufactured significantly different from those used by other vendors. Each tire is hot forged from a single billet of AISI 1025 teel, then finish machined. There is no weld seam, and the steel grain structure is oriented for greater wear resistance and strength. It is forged into a “T” cross-section instead of the usual rectangular bar cross-section other vendors generally supply using rolled and welded bar stock. Product Advantages Baker-Rullman’s triple-pass dryer design remains the most trusted dehydration technology for optimizing operating costs, efficiency, and product consistency. High BTU efficiency - Better heat utilization created by longer residence times, robust temperature control, and drum insulation allow the Baker-Rullman triple-pass rotary drum dryer to achieve efficiencies better than 1,500 BTUs per pound of water evaporated. Consistent evaporation - Baker-Rullman’s triple-pass dryer design protects your product from under or over-drying. Heavier, wetter product moves slower than fine particles, giving uniform drying to all particles. That’s why our rotary dryers have long been known for protecting the protein value of food by-products and the integrity of all types of material. Reduced Volatile Organic Compounds (V.O.C.) emissions - V.O.C. emissions can cause pollution problems and restrict your production rates. Heat utilization in a Baker-Rullman system is superior to that of the other rotary drum dryers by virtue of the triple-pass rotary dryer design, eliminating unnecessary V.O.C. emissions. A properly sized and tuned system suited to your input volume is the key to planning an efficient system, and Baker-Rullman engineers are dedicated to accomplishing these goals with each and every installation
