Order for 3 sets of hot clean air generators using biomass ()

BERALMAR has just received an order from Morocco for 3 sets of hot clean air generators that use biomass, each with a power of up to 2,000,000 Kcal/hour (2,326 kW). Each set is comprised of:

  • Biomass feed hopper chute with disintegrator mill.
  • PULS/2000 solid fuel combustion chamber.
  • GB/2000 heat exchanger.
The biomass is removed from the hopper chute through a screw conveyor, passing through a hammermill which breaks it up into a particle size small enough to be pneumatically transported and injected into the combustion chamber, where combustion occurs before it reaches the bottom. The combustion chamber is coupled directly to the heat exchanger. This separation of functions (combustion in one machine and heat exchange in another), maximizes overall efficiency, reaching values of between 80 and 85%.

The 3 sets will be installed in 3 factories in Morocco, owned by the Salhi family: BRIQUETERIEMABROUKA, BRIQUETERIESONABRIQ and BRIQUETERIEMIDABRIQ. A few months ago, BERALMAR put an identical set into operation in BRIQUETERIEMIDABRIQ, and the level of customer satisfaction along with the savings from replacing all previous consumption of fuel oil, have convinced the Salhi family to continue the same path of replacing the remaining fuel oil generators of all their factories.

Another advantage of this set is the possibility of installing an fuel burner at the back of the heat exchanger, so that it can consume fuel oil at any time, in case of problems with the supply of biomass.

With these, in a few months there will be 8sets of equipment supplied to Morocco to replace fuel oil with biomass in the dryer and it is anticipated that these applications will continue expanding in Morocco, given that the main biomass used, olive pomace, has 40% the calorific value of fuel oil with 15% of the cost. Therefore the saving is very significant and amortization takes place within a few months.
