Make a powerful investment

Small initial investment with low ownership costs from efficient Drying Stations, suited to small-scale operations.

Low Capex - Great value for money at point of purchase from affordable, cost-effective container Drying Stations.
Low Ownership costs - High component quality ensures max uptime and productivity; quality-built Drying Stations deliver strong residual values.
Low Opex - Low labour cost from all-in-one batch Drying Stations. In total synergy, HAF Containers, HookLoada & Heatex efficiently deliver material from source to end user.

More than just a dryer

Horizontal Airflow (HAF) woodchip drying containers work alongside Heatex and HookLoada to collect, dry and deliver low bulk density, light, biomass materials. Our well proven woodchip drying containers transform waste residues into added value. Learn more about each component part below.

Maximise your efficiency

Issues with “bottom-up drying”

(1) Large heat loss occurs at the bottom, sides and ends of the drying container, reducing air temperature.
(2) Material dries unevenly; over drying at the bottom and under drying at the top. It is impossible to control drying.
(3) Material dries in 300mm fronts which cause re-condensation. Water needs to be re-evaporated which is highly inefficient.

Facts, based on real data…

(1) For the same thermal input, Stronga Drying Stations deliver vastly improved evaporation compared to vertical container drying.
(2) Improved evaporation rate adds up over time, potentially more than 1500 litres of extra water per day, per unit.
(3) Stronga Drying Stations offer lower back pressure and higher air volume, lowering costs from better electrical energy efficiency.
(4) Drying Stations roughly deliver 35% increased drying capacity and more consistently uniform final moisture content.

To achieve these results – you need Stronga to advise on the whole Drying Station set-up.

Picture the possibilities

Flexibility & efficiency, combined

(1) Simultaneous batch drying. Stronga Drying Stations can be easily scaled-up to increase drying capacity. Multiple woodchip drying containers can be delivered direct from fuel source to Heatex.
(2) Collect, Dry & Deliver (CDD). Using HookLoada, users can collect wet material from source; deliver to the Drying Station; connect to Heatex; and deliver the final dry output to the end user.
(3) Future-proof Drying Stations. Volatile markets require flexible equipment that can quickly alternate between light biomass materials. Adapt to changing trends by drying wood chips and other low density products.
(4) Air-induced drying. Drying Stations transform smaller residual heat sources and waste materials into value while contributing to sustainability. Drying times vary depending on various factors.
(5) Space-saving solution. Compact, mobile, containerised solution with flexible layout. External design with roll sheet cover saves valuable space compared to on-floor drying systems which have to be inside.

The ‘Whole’ Drying Station

To achieve optimum drying performance, you need expert advice on the whole Drying Station from the world’s leading manufacturer.

(1) Contact Stronga to find out which materials are compatible with Drying Stations.
(2) Contact Stronga to understand the factors affecting estimated drying time.
(3) Contact Stronga to discuss drying air quality & distribution; this must be efficiently delivered for top results.
(4) Contact Stronga to discuss your whole set-up. The Heatex, HookLoada & HAF container arrangement is key to optimising drying efficiency.
