Unused wood fuel pelleting plant with an output of up to 50,000 tonnes per year making softwood pellets. All machines were built in 2018 and are currently in store, some in the UK some in Germany, as the plant was never assembled. The plant comprises a VEP walking floor, an Allgaier rolling bed dryer with Polytechnik heat source, Bruks hammer mill with Scheuch filter, Salmatec pellet presses, Geelen cooler and Cryloc pellet sieve. Includes all handling equipment and control equipment. Approx 3,500,000 Euros in value. The photographs show the ID plates of some of the machines I have seen in the UK which are still packaged and sheeted down so difficult to get at. This plant was to be constructed like the plant reference UCPE-6160, see photos. Sensible offers considered.

Wood Shavings Plant


Fliegl Okodry model 27/12 moving bed dryer built in 2015. It was drying mainly wood chip from around 55% down to around 25% moisture content with an output of around 500kg/hr. The dryer is fully automated and can operate unattended apart from loading in wet product from time to time. It will dry many other products including sawdust and can cover a wide range of moisture content requirements. The dryer body is galvanised. Also included is a UK Heat Exchangers model 61AA 26T/6R/2520L/P2/N39 heat exchanger built in 2015 and a 22kw centrifugal drying air fan. The heat exchanger is 2520mm x 1560mm and will handle up to 36,000M3/hr of air. There is a cyclone with a rotary valve on the outlet and an 11kw fan which are used when drying sawdust to collect the dust generated during the drying process and to reintroduce it to the discharge conveyor. The overall dimensions of the dryer are 13.0 meters long x 2.6 metres wide x 3.0 metres high.
There is a De Dietrich model GT430-14 oil fired water boiler built in 2018. This unit has a heat output up to 780kw but this is oversize for the dryer. Also included are the circulation pump, expansion vessel, pipework and valves. This is offered as an optional extra at 9,000 Euros.
The corrugated steel boiler house can be included as an optional extra at 1,000 Euros.
There is a Redler chain and flight conveyor from the dryer. This is 400mm wide x 36M long and has a painted case. This is offered as an optional extra at 7,500 Euros.
All machines are in good condition and are offered as seen, dismantled and loaded to buyers transport.

Complete shavings plant constructed in 2010 and believed to have ceased operation in 2016. Approximate output is 2.5 tph of dry shavings.
There is no debarking machine so the bark particles end up within the shavings but a lot get screen out from the dry shavings and end up as fuel for the furnace.
The logs are loaded onto a log haul conveyor and through two log planers in-line. The planers are a 2.6 metre single box by Jackson Lumber with two heads and a single drive and a 2.6 metre single box Blue Diamond with two heads each with their own drive. The shavings are conveyed away from below the planers and transported to a star screen for the removal of splinters. Clean shavings are transferred to a bunker feeder which provides a controlled feed rate for the shavings to the dryer.
The dryer is a Webb type suspension refactory lined vertical furnace connected to a triple pass rotary drum dryer. Both were supplied by Jackson Lumber in USA but not necessarily built by them.
The furnace was built in 2009 and has an output of 15 million BTU (4.4MW). It burns the screenings from the dry shavings sieve which are pneumatically transferred from the screen to a holding hopper and then through a small hammer mill prior to pneumatic transfer to the furnace.
The furnace is connected to triple pass lagged and clad rotary drum dryer 2.4 metres diameter x 7.3 metres long. The drum rides on rollers and riding rings at either end and has a friction drive.
The dry shavings are sucked out of the drum dryer and into a cyclone separator by a centrifugal fan. The cyclone discharge is fitted with a rotary valve through which the shavings pass onto a conveyor. The conveyor lifts the shavings up to a reciprocating screen, made by Balepak, where small particles are removed and transported back to the fuel hopper.
From the sieve the clean dry shavings can go to a long chain and slat conveyor for loading open topped bulk transporters or to a baler. The baler is a twin ram Balepak 120 with a capacity of 120 bales per hour. This is a hand operated unit with the operator placing the plastic sleeves on the bale tube, removing them when filled, heat sealing them closed and loading to a pallet. .
