- VAP System
Cogeneration plant from WOODCHIPS
VAP System is a cogeneration plant (CHP) able to produce Electrical Energy and Thermal Energy from woodchips.
To feed the plant is not necessary to use high quality wood, it can be use processing waste wood, bark, branches or other waste products, supplied in sufficient quantity to ensure the necessary calories.
VAP System allow to:
- energy production from renewable sources;
- raw material use even with 40% moisture content or higher;
- direct production of electricity;
- direct production of heat.
VAP System includes:
- high efficiency wood chip furnace;
- combustion exhaust fumes chimney;
- water-air heat exchanger for the fumes heat energy recover;
- close circuit steam engine;
- steam condensation system;
- electrical alternator;
- sensors and main control switchboard.
There is no need of steam accumulator tank, because it is utilized immediately and condensed in a close circuit.
General functional diagram
VAP System has insignificant air pollution, that comes from woodchips combustion in the furnace. The system is equipped also with a cyclone filter to complete emission abatement.
VAP System has reduced noisiness because there is not an internal combustion engine.
VAP System requires a small surface to be installed, equal to a 20” container which be added a woodchips storage tank.
VAP System doesn’t require frequent maintenance, but is available a 24 hour technical service, 7 days a week.
The furnace was been specifically designed to produce the steam required to run the CHP.
|VAP 500 model||VAP 1000 model|
|Max furnace power||555||1110||kW|
|Max steam production||700||1400||kg/h|
|Max steam pressure||50||50||bar|
|Max steam temperature||500||500||°C|
