Corn Cobs - Processing Solutions

Materials:Corn Cobs


Efficient, low-cost removal of iron contamination from a corn cob residue belt conveyor operating in hot, dusty conditions was the problem at the Quaker Oats Company, in Memphis, TN, USA.


Corn cobs were processed to make fuel, charcoal and fertilizers at this chemical plant. A 30-inch (762 mm) Eriez Suspended Electromagnet was installed. The magnet removed all tramp iron at a burden depth of four to eight inches (102-203 mm) traveling about 31 feet per minute (9 mpm). Only clean residue was allowed to continue to the boiler plant.
