Säätötuli biomass burner for solid fuels
The Säätötuli biomass burner is a high quality stoker-type burner for solid biomass fuels. Säätötuli biomass burners are available in a range of 136,500 BTU/hr (40kW) up to 5,118,000 BTU/hr (1500kW).
The Säätötuli burning technology ensures a high energy output and low emissions for a wide range of solid fuels. Based on huge thermal inertia, a wide combustion grate, a big firebox and a perfect control of combustion airs, the Säätötuli biomass burner is able to burn a large variety of solid fuels and maintain an exceptionnally low level of atmospheric emissions.
Säätötuli 60kW (205,000 BTU/hr) biomass burner
The grate is made of cast iron. Beginning from 80kW (273,000 BTU/hr) and above, all burners are equipped with a grate mechanism to push the fuel down the grate in an even way and reduce clinker. This allows the use of fuels with high ash contains.
Säätötuli 500kW (1,706,000 BTU/hr) biomass burner
From 150kW (512,000 BTU/hr) and above, the burner is equipped with a removable top and easily changable ceramics. This sturdy conception leads to a long lifetime and reduced maintenance costs. Most of the burners can be fitted with automatic ignition.
The nominal output of all burners is guaranteed for wood-based fuels up to 35% of moisture. In addition to that, Säätötuli burners are able to burn a wide range of solid fuels up to 50% of moisture.
Here are some examples of fuels used in Säätötuli burners:
- wood-energy chips (hog fuel produced with a chipper)
- wood chips
- wood-industry leftovers
- fruit cores, nut shells, corn cobs…
We are always pleased to answer any questions regarding different fuels, don’t hesitate to send us your questions.
Wood-energy chips VS. woodchips ?
The word woodchip is commonly used for the pulp and paper woodchips that are made with only the best parts of the wood and screened to have a constant particle size. Säätötuli’s biomass boilers do not need such a high-quality woodchip and it makes no sense to start competing with the pulp & paper industry for the same supply. Wood-energy chips are the best possible fuel to feed your boiler. Wood-energy chips are woodchips made from hog, branches, treetops, sawmill leftovers, etc. When made with a good chipper, no screening process is necessary as it would eliminate a part of the biomass.
We offer also additional flue gas cleaning systems and ash conveying systems that you can discover on this page.
