Blandford Depot Biomass Boilers

The Blandford depot has various types of biomass boilers that are operated and are used primarily in the manufacturing processes but also enable us to demonstrate the various boilers to prospective clients.

Running our own boilers, we know how important it is to supply the right quality wood fuel at the correct moisture content to enable the boilers to run efficiently.

Loading, Handling and Processing

This is our CAT machine, scooping and loading our L3 Screener with woodchip.

This screener has a 3 way split which screens out any fines or dust and any oversize chip so what we are left with is a high quality woodchip product that adheres to the exact specification that is required.

The L3 screener has a throughput of 100m3 per hour and the specification that it screens to can be changed at the touch of a button.
