During processing of biomass for energy purposes, classification is necessary for uniformity and separation of particulates and wastes. Lippel's classifiers separate materials of different natures as chips, sawdust, waste wood, sugar cane bagasse, bark among others.
The Disc Classifiers selects the chips and are an integral part in boiler feed systems. The Rotary Screens remove strange materials or pieces in pelletizing or briquetting processes.
