Several thousand tonnes of grain drying with the help of electricity for KLF
Through the transition from grain drying with oil operation to drying with electric boilers, energy costs were reduced in the first season by SEK 400,000.
With electric boilers, you get minimal annual maintenance and even drying temperature, which contributes to the cost reduction. The choice fell on electric boilers as oil operation is too expensive and drying with biofuel entails extra staff for operation and maintenance during the drying period, 4-6 weeks every summer. The local district heating plant is not able to supply the process with a sufficient amount of energy and maintain the desired medium temperature, approx. 100 ° C. KLF's board therefore decided to invest in a substation to be able to buy high voltage, 12000 volts, at low cost, which is then transformed down to 690V operating voltage.
