Drying Floors

One of our recent bespoke engineering solutions was a highly efficient woodchip drying floor heated by a Veto 190kw woodchip boiler.

Installed at a sawmill, this drying floor uses heat produced by the woodchip boiler (also heating a timber kiln and local district heating scheme) to dry woodchips to <15% moisture for sale.
Designed from scratch, this solution is highly efficient, using 100kw of the boiler's output and a 1kW fan to dry a batch of chips (roughly 20m3) within a 24 hour period.

Heat used by an enclosed drying floor is eligible for payments under the non-domestic RHI.

As with our installation services, we are happy to install woodchip drying floors within a rough 2-hour radius of our office address, TD11 3HS.
If you are located further away, please do contact us as we may still be able to help.
