Containerised biomass hot air generator

Containerised biomass hot air furnace connected to a grain dryer Säätötuli’s containerised biomass hot air generator is a hot air furnace which is ready to use in a custom-made container. Säätötuli was one of the pioneers in bioheat-container manufacturing with the first unit manufactured in 2003. On delivery, the main fan, the ash screws and the chimney are put in place and the container is connected to the electrical network.

Inside the containerised biomass hot air plant is a biomass silo with a hydraulically operated roof and a furnace-room with the hot air furnace and the automation box to control the operations

The containerised biomass hot air generator is built with fire-resistant sandwich-panel cladding. The steel frame is built outside of the fire-proof cladding in order to comply with the most restrictive standards of each country. The steel frame is made to be able to support large amounts of snow on the roof of the container.

The container is divided in two parts: a fuel silo of approximatively 15m3 with a hydraulically operated roof, and the boiler room with the hot air generator, biomass feeders, automation controls and an aerosol extinguisher for optimal security. The container can be equipped with a GSM modem to relay alerts by text message to cellular phones.

Easy to transport, the containerised hot air generator can be used for different applications: it can provide hot air for dryers (grain or wood dryers for example), but also for any kind of permanent or temporary building. Like the Biocont Roll-off self-contained heating plant, the containerised hot air generator features a roll-off hook.

Heating up the Nordic Ski World Championship in Finland with pellets

On the pictures above, the red containerised hot air generator belongs to a farmer who purchased it as a hot air source for his grain dryer. During the winter time, he rents the equipment for different events like the village of the Nordic Ski World Championship of 2017 in Finland. That way he is able to get an additional revenue with his equipment and reduce the return on investment (ROI) for his biomass furnace.
