The drying of wood chippings became more and more important. Fresh forest chippings has a moisture content of 40 – 60% (large differences in the moisture between core and sapwood). The calorific value of fresh forest chippings stands at around 2 kW/kg. The advantages of dry wood chippings are obvious.
- The calorific value of fresh forest chippings stands at around 4 kW/kg
- One reduces the amount of fuel by half
- the combustion is cleaner and less ash is generated
- The weight during transportation is reduced as well (less transportation cost)
If wood chippings should be dried in a box, our louvered panel is the proper tool to ensure it. With our louvered panel, almost any material can be dryed.
The nozzle orifices are kept small – this avoids any material from falling into the pressure chamber.
A nozzle metal floor using a supporting construction can be equipped navigable as well which turned out very useful for wood chips, wood, grain, maize and tea drying.
An appropriate sizing of the supporting construction will be provided by us on request. In addition to the gill plate for do-it-yourself construction of a drying box, we offer ready-made drying containers as well. For relevant images, see the video..
