Höcker North America provides biomass systems solutions for the woodworking industry by providing woodworkers with financially viable energy saving solutions though reducing, reusing, and recycling their waste stream into energy.
The midwestern woodworking industry is the perfect application for a wood fuel biomass boiler. Turning your company;s waste into affordable on-site usable fuel is not common sense, but can create value, reduce costs, and set an environmentally conscious in your market and your community.
Höcker North America can size and custom design a biomass boiler system for a single standing building, or industrial complex. As well as design a material handling and storage system to both create your wood fuel and store it appropriately for use or even excess wood fuel sales.
The wood combustion plant type USF – S extends the principal of the automatic underfeed burning system for smaller range performance. The specification of an approved combustion method was compressed without the loss of quality standards. An automatic ignition is integrated by default.
The wood combustion plant type USF – SR was extended with an automatic heat exchanger cleaning.
The range of performance for this type is 75 – 160 kW or 90 – 200 kW for USF – SR. The basic dimensions for the 160 kW wood combustion plant are for example 1.6 x 0.85 m and provide best assembly options for existing boiler rooms.
For many years the existing generation of automatic underfeed burning system type USF – W with a performance range of 250 kW up to 1000 kW distinguished by its lying heat exchanger and the small overall height of the boiler plant.
The generous dimensioned and fully ceramic-lined combustion chamber offers the possibility to burn chippings, pellets and wood chips up to a humidity of 60%. The USF – WR was extended with an automatic heat exchanger cleaning.

Based on the Boiler type USF- S a moving grate burning system was developed. Thereby all preferences of a moving grate burning system for burning of wet biomass fuel up to 80% (humidity) and new innovative Ideas were realized.
Here they pay special attention, that before the ash is moved, it is fully burned and therefore completely used for energy. Fuel that isn’t burned fully is a thing of the past.
The wood combustion plant is rounded off with an automatic ash removal from the heat exchanger, grate trolley and also the combustion chamber and fly ash. This high cleaning comfort grants consistent boiler efficiency even after several operating hours. The performance range for this wood combustion plant is 90 – 300 kW.
An optimized heat exchanger realizes a maximum boiler efficiency of 220 kW for this type, with basic dimensions of only 2.1 x 0.85 m !!!
