CHP enclosure and air inlet set for the dryer installation
Fertikal is a manure processor in Belgium with a modern production site. The company has a CHP (combined heat and power) installation with two gas engines that supply power. The residual heat from the CHP room is used as a power source in the manure drying process. Alara-Lukagro supplied an enclosure and air inlet set for the installation.
Manure drying installation
Alara-Lukagro designed a large acoustic enclosure, including the air inlet set, for the CHP’s gas engines.
Reusing the warm air
The enclosure’s air outlet is linked to the manure dryer’s air inlet. This means that cold air from outside is mixed in the air supply with warm air from the enclosure. The air is then sucked through the heat exchangers to heat it even more. A ventilator at the dryer sucks up the air. As soon as the dryer becomes inactive, the air is let outside via a bypass to the roof.
The dryer’s air supply was delivered including support, air inlet louvres in the wall of the building, filter section, heat exchangers, bypass with air outlet to the roof and roof cowl, outlet gas mixer and channel work to the dryer. All the channel work was insulated due to the heat recovery process.
Alara-Lukagro designed, produced and installed the enclosure and complete installation.
In addition to the enclosure for the dryer installation Alara-Lukagro also supplied an acoustic enclosure for compressors located elsewhere at Fertikal.
