A reliable and low-maintenance Bulk Fuel Spreader

Burning sewage sludge offers a cost-effective and reliable way to power waste incineration facilities and sewage sludge treatment plants. Using readily available energy sources, like wood chips or sludge, will also reduce costs for other treatment plants or landfills.

Consistent, uniform supply

Our Bulk Fuel Spreader directly feeds the incinerator with a continuous flow of material, ensuring the material is spread homogenously. This increases the surface area of the bulk material and prevents gaps appearing in the supply, which helps improve the combustion process.


A consistent, uniform fuel supply will help ensure your incinerator operates with maximum efficiency.


Low maintenance

We’ve constructed our Bulk Fuel Spreader using heat-resistant material and cooling systems to reduce the need for ongoing maintenance and to ensure a reliable performance. With this machine, you’ll be able to keep maintenance costs down while benefiting from a continuous power source.


Withstands high temperatures

Since our Bulk Fuel Spreader is positioned next to the incinerator, it needs to be able to cope with very harsh conditions. That’s why we’ve designed it to withstand temperatures of up to 1000°C. 

Alternative fuels supported

  • Sludge
  • Waste
  • Woodchip

Performance you can trust, support you can rely on

Turn waste into fuel

Our Bulk Fuel Spreader will help you to turn a range of fuel products, including waste and sludge, into a continuous fuel source.

A reliable performance

We’ve designed our Bulk Fuel Spreader to deliver the consistent, round-the-clock performance your business needs. Even better, our machine requires limited maintenance, meaning less downtime and lower costs.

Improve combustion of fuels

A continuous flow of material from our Bulk Fuel Spreader and a controlled feed ensures an increased surface area and gap-free material supply. This helps to improve the combustion process and allows your incinerator to operate at maximum efficiency.

Hot-temperature-resistant design

Our Bulk Fuel Spreader is designed to withstand the high temperatures it will be subjected to during operation in its flanged position on the incinerator. This includes being manufactured from heat-resistant materials. It is also either fully or partially cooled.

Backed by expert support

We offer permanent support for our all our plant and equipment, including staff training, risk and defect identification, and improved plant safety and efficiency by repair and upgrading measures.

We also offer a full range of spare parts that we can deliver quickly to your operations.

A heat-resistant unit with easy maintenance access

Our Bulk Fuel Spreader has been engineered to provide continuous, trouble-free service. Its robust components and parts ensure a long life.


The machine is housed in a solid welded unit made of heat-resistant steel plates. It is also equipped with mounting flanges and inspection doors to allow for easy access for maintenance staff, as well as wear liners on the front side and bottom of the casing that are made of abrasion-resistant steel.



The spreading wheel is fitted with two replaceable spreading bars of 1.4828 material mounted to a shaft.



This is provided with a cooling hole that includes adequately dimensioned self-aligning roller bearings to carry the cooling water.


Drive unit

Comprised of a variable speed gear motor, protection class IP 55, with manual adjustment and speed indication plus a semi-flexible coupling with a guard between the gear motor and shaft.


Additional supply

Includes a rotation monitor, which consists of an actuator, initiator, attachment and protection guard. Special heat-resistant slide gates are also available to shut off the Bulk Fuel Spreader from the incineration process.


Silent block displacements

Includes a sealing head, with inlets and outlets for water provided at the front end of the shaft to connect to the incoming and outgoing cooling water pipes.
