Biomass - case study
Biomass is organic material that comes from plants and animals and can be used for energy production. Although many substances such as agricultural crops and waste materials can be burned for fuel, the most common biomass used for fuel is wood and wood processing wastes. Uzelac dryers dry wood chips, sawdust, and wood shavings to be used in the timber industry for such things as OSB, particleboard and wood pellets.
MAJESTIC VALLEY PELLETS
Project Location: Alamosa, CO
Project Completion Date: February 2020
System Size: SPD-6000BB
Finished Product: Wood Chips
Majestic Valley Pellet reached out to Uzelac Industries to help modify their current wood chip drying system to increase its output.
The existing system was a fluidized bed dryer getting heat from a solid fuel burner.
Uzelac was able to modify the system by replacing the fluidized bed dryer with a rotary drying drum. This more than tripled the final product output for Majestic Valley. Uzelac was able to reuse the existing biomass burner and dust cyclone providing Majestic Valley a cost-competitive way to increase their production.
The drying system is drying wood chips down from 45% moisture content to 10% moisture content to allow for pelletizing.
“Uzelac was able to understand my needs and provide a custom solution that was cost effective”
