After the successful introduction of its high throughput biomass shredder BMS 1500, Germany-headed provider of hammer mills and depackaging machines TIETJEN Verfahrenstechnik GmbH (Tietjen) has launched its BMS 1200 biomass shredder, designed for medium and small biogas plants with a throughput of 8 - 10 tonnes per hour.

The BMS 1200 grinds the biomass instead of cutting it up. According to the company only in this way can the biomass be optimally prepared for fermentation, the maximum biogas yields are achieved, and floating layers are reduced.

This optimal defibration and the reliable and robust design of the BMS 1200 increase the efficiency of small and medium-sized biogas plants.

Substrates such as solid manure, are gently shredded in a single step with the new biomass shredder. The discharge in the ground prevents bridging and blockages.

All wear parts, such as beaters and impact plates, are made of wear-resistant materials such as tungsten carbide or Hardox and are easily accessible and simple to replace.

According to the company, the low noise emission of the unit is due to the special geometry of the housing, rotor, and beaters.

In addition, shrinkage sensors protect the BMS 1200 from damage caused by imbalance and the ingress of foreign matter.
