Biomass Grain Dryer & District Heating System Install Aberdeen

Biomass Grain Dryer & District Heating System Install Aberdeen

This project started off as a agricultural biomass grain drying system and evolved to include the heating supply of the farm house. AC Gold installed this biomass system in an existing shed connecting to the adjacent grain dryer floor.

Throughout the project AC Gold consulted with the client on the upgrade of his grain drying system, including the reconstruction of the tunnel and grain drying floor. We upgraded and added speed controls to the industrial fan that takes the air from the heat exchanger to the dryer. The 200 kW heat exchanger is built into the tunnel ensuring minimum heat loss during transference.

The house is connected via an underground pipeline and a brazed plate heat exchanger which allows 40 kW’s of continuous heat to be supplied 24 hours a day.
