Rotating Fuel Spreader

Rotating Fuel Spreader is used for spreading material evenly in a storage facility, especially for spreading fuel in a silo. It’s attached on top of a silo, improving the filling grade of a silo, i.e. the net volume.

Laitex designs and manufactures Rotating Fuel Spreaders for industrial bulk material handling as part of our silo deliveries. They are used primarily with bio materials and RDF-fuel with a large particle size distribution. Rotating Fuel Spreaders are tailored for customer according to material (type, density, particle size, chemical properties, temperature), silo diameter and height, and required capacity.
