Heating technology with a future
The calculation is simple, the technology successful. Efficient surface drying is achieved with biomass in Rippert plants. Together with the Hargassner company from Austria, a specialist for heating with biomass, and the proven Rippert plant know-how, the technology is now marketable and has gone into production. The demanding drying characteristics in a powder-coating plant are compatible with the process and work perfectly. A future-orientated heating technology with considerable economic and ecological benefits – the experts are unanimous in that. Wood pellets or wood chips are the inexpensive energy suppliers. They are valuable waste products that result from the processing of domestic timbers.


Heating with wood chips – without intermediate heat transfer media such as thermal oil
• Environmentally friendly and CO2-neutral
• fully automatic boiler cleaning and ash discharge

Maximum financial saving potentials are realised with this energy carrier. Wood chips, chopped to a transportable size and dried by the supplier, are stored in the storeroom near the plant. It can be located on the same level or lower. A tried-and tested transport system consisting of a floor agitator with springs and discharge auger carries the wood chips reliably into the plant. Here it acts as a fuel with maximum convenience. If the calorific value equivalents are examined, we see that 1,000 litres of fuel oil is equivalent to 12 m³ of wood chips. The ratio is the same for 1,000 m³ of natural gas.

Heating with wood pellets - without intermediate heat transfer media such as thermal oil

Wood pellets are true energy bundles. They consist of natural wood and are made by compressing sawdust, which is produced in large quantities every day in the industry. As a biomass they are the alternative to wood chips and are just as advantageous from an economical point of view. Pellets have the smallest volume and are conveyed dust-free and without odours from storage containers to a storage vessel next to the plant. They are transported into the combustion chamber via a rotary vane feeder and feed auger.

For comparison:
1,000 l fuel oil = 2 t pellets
1,000 m³ natural gas = 2 t pellets
1,000 l liquefied gas = 1.32 t pellets

Advantages
•  Reduction in energy costs
