Flexible storage solutions for solid biofuel

Akron has extensive experience with storage solutions for solid biofuel, e g wood chips and pellets. The solutions for pellets encompass welded and painted silos delivered ready for use as well as galvanised silos for assembly on site. All silos have 60° outlet hoppers and integrated filling arrangement. Larger silos are delivered with explosion relief valves as standard. Over the years, literally hundreds of small and medium-sized heating plants have been fitted with Akron silos.

The Akron wood chip hopper solution was originally developed for daily fuel storage for our wood chip-fired air heater Bio400, but can of course be used also with other boilers. The hopper is based on Akron's classic Type M storage solution for grain, with painted corner posts and galvanised corrugated wall elements for assembly on site. A flexible module system allows for different heights of the hopper, all with a powerful rotary agitator in the hopper bottom and centre-less feed auger for safe fuel transport.

Development in the solid biofuel area is progressing continuously. Thanks to the wide scope of products in Akron's other business areas, we can deliver highly specialised solutions for specific needs. Please contact us directly for more information.
