BMA is well known for its innovative, energy-efficient products and methods for biomass processing. Our WVT fluidised-bed steam dryer can process almost all types of biomass. It combines particularly efficient drying rates with high energy savings.
In a conventional dryer, the evaporated water is released into the atmosphere unused via the chimney. But in BMA's fluidised-bed steam dryer, the drying vapour condensates in a downstream heat exchanger. This allows you to recover up to 90 percent of the heating energy used for drying – which saves heating costs, reduces CO2 emissions and protects resources.
Another asset is BMA's highly efficient steam-based fluidisation method. This involves keeping the feedstock floating in a fluidised bed, ensuring a gentle treatment of the product and, in addition, completely eliminating oxidation.
The key benefits of the BMA WVT at a glance:
- Gentle oxidation-free treatment of biomass
- High energy savings through energy recovery
BMA's WVT is suitable for:
- pourable, non-sticky biomass
- biomass with an expected water evaporation rate of at least 5 to 10 t/h.
BMA also has a pilot plant for qualitative and quantitative testing. Excellent test results have been achieved, for instance, with brewer's grains.
