Dryers for Wood Products and Biomass

Low temperature drying and gentle handling for reduced product degradation and fines.

Bühler AeroDry conveyor dryers accommodate a wide range of materials requiring high throughput with low temperatures or long retention time. Drying at low temperatures dramatically reduces the amount of hazardous air pollutants and VOC’s. In the wood products industry, drying applications include wood strands for OSB, wood chips, sawdust, bark mulch and tooth picks. Conveyor dryers are also an ideal solution for energy recovery systems in biomass drying facilities. This technology has been successfully deployed with harvested organic materials such as wood or cellulosic feed stocks, as well as recovered waste streams. End products can be densified for direct combustion, or further processed for phytosanitation purposes, cellulosic ethanol, gasification or torrefaction.

All Bühler wood and biomass dryers feature robust, heavy duty construction for reliable processing in harsh conditions. Cleaning and maintenance is made simple with full-height access doors and optional fines management system.
