Dragon Biomass have teamed up with Danish company Twin Heat to introduce an automatic feed system that can be installed into new and existing Dragons.
This means that, for the first time, our batch fed boilers can now also be fed with woodchip, pellets, sawdust, chipped waste wood, wood shavings etc.
Twin Heat have the same principles as Dragon, robust, high quality and easy to use.
Dragon Biomass have been asked for many years to produce an automatic feed system for the boiler without compromising the ability to burn round and heston bales of straw.
We can proudly announce that we now have teamed up with Twin Heat who can supply us with a product that is built to the high quality and robust standards of a Dragon boiler. It is easy to use and can be installed into new and existing Dragon boilers.
For new installs, we have several options available including a purpose built container which incorporates a Dragon D220 and a Twin Heat auto-feed. This unit will be able to burn bales of straw, pallets and logs as well as chipped waste wood, G30 virgin chip and wood shavings. The D220 is passed for all these fuels and is approved for use by the Environmental Agency by using a U4 exemption.
For existing installations, we would ideally remove the Dragon from its existing site and bring it back to Boston. We can then make the necessary modifications to the boiler, including updating the doors, back box, air flow etc at the same time. We can then return the Dragon to site and re-install, complete with the Twin Heat auto-feed.
OFGEM have agreed that the way a fuel is loaded into the boiler is irrelevant and as long as the boiler is passed for the fuel that it is burning, then they are happy for the boiler to be eligible for the Renewable Heat Incentive. Therefore, this item can be retro-fitted to existing RHI accredited installations.
