Futurum have been contracted to install a number of drying floors for clients to go with biomass and CHP systems that we have installed.

Levelair Drying Floors

Drying floors are a legitimate heat use for the commercial Renewable Heat Incentive and are used to dry grains, crops and wood chips typically. They can also be used to dry other items such as pallets. Futurum use Levelair floor grids which are the ideal solution where below-floor laterals are required to allow an unobstructed floor area in the crop store for access by lorries and other traffic. The Levelair grids consist of a welded steel framework, with a high quality dipped paint finish on which is welded a louvered or expanded steel cover. The Levelair H.D. uses a deeper and heavier section framework but is otherwise identical.

Two strengths are available, the Levelair Mk 2 which will withstand the loads of normal road vehicles and the Levelair H.D., a heavy duty version for use where loading with industrial loaders is proposed. Both versions can be supplied with grain covers or
potato/onion covers as required. These drying floors have been tried and tested over 35 years for the drying and
storage of grain, rape, potatoes & onions. They can be installed on a concrete or
hardcore base alongside the biomass or CHP boiler or some distance away using heat main.

The market for wood chips is growing due to the growth of the biomass market and customer or larger systems often profit from supplying locally to other users or further afield much in the same way as oil clubs have historically.

Drying floors are a relatively low cost installation especially when our customers are able to lay the base and shed.
