Drying Wood Chip for Biomass Boilers

I’m installing a renewable heat system; can I use spare heat to dry my crop and can I also dry woodchip or logs on a drive on floor?

Answer:

  1. Yes, spare heat from your renewable heat system is passed through a heat exchanger to warm the air feeding your fans in your drive on floor installation. The demand on the supplied heat is controlled by the drive on floor electronic control system.
  2. Yes, woodchip can be dried on your drive on floor. Typically a 200kw boiler supports a 40 tonne store with woodchip stacked at 1.5m high – this stack is reduced in moisture content from 40% to 25% over a 2 to 3 day period.
  3. You can also dry logs on the drive on floor by employing a slightly different drying technique.
