Cost-efficient, powerful and scalable

ModHeat is an affordable, scalable, mobile and continuous drying technology. It is suitable for many different materials and industries. ModHeat can utilize different kinds of waste heats as heat source for drying.

The basis of the technology is formed by modular structure. This enables the capacity to be scaled for different amounts of material. The surface area of the dryer is maximized with modules that are placed on top of each other. Material flows between these layers starting from the top and ending up at the bottom of the dryer. What makes the material move are blades that are constantly mixing the material. This results in homogeneous end product and efficient drying process. Modules can be removed separately which allows easy and quick maintenance. Warm air is blown against the movement of the material. Technology is fully automated and remote controlled. The air flow and the speed of the blades can be optimized for each material and drying environment.

ModHeat consists of simple yet efficient technical solutions. That is why it is the best drying technology for many materials.

Benefits of ModHeat®

Suitable for many materials

Technology can be used for difficult materials that are impossible to handle with existing technologies.

Low investment cost

The dryer is a profitable investment even for low value materials. Payback time is short.


Because of the modular structure the same technology works in small and large scale. As well as in tight spaces.


Dryer can be moved with ease. This enables meeting seasonal drying needs and minimizes transport costs of material.

Easy maintenance

Simple modular structure can be dissembled separately for maintenance. This lowers the operating costs.

Enables usage of waste heats

Unused waste heats into use. Using waste heats lowers the operating costs of the drying process.

ModHeat® can be used in







Reusing wet and low value side streams can be problematic. It is possible to find new ways to utilize and process materials by removing excess water from them. Cost efficient drying enables many wet materials to be refined into new products or circulated back to processes.

ModHeat can dry for example:

  • Sidestreams of metallurgical industry
  • Sidestreams of food industry
  • Sidestreams of chemical industry
  • Sidestreams of mechanical wood industry
  • Sludges of pulp and paper industry
  • Organic sludges
  • Energy waste






Homogeneous and good quality fuel is needed for bioenergy production. Especially distributed energy production depends on dry and good quality material. The dryness level of biomaterial has a huge impact on the heat value and economical profitability of bioenergy production. ModHeat dryes the materials to the optimal level of moisture.

ModHeat can dry for example:

  • Woodchips
  • Sawdust
  • Bark
  • Seaweed
  • Peat






ModHeat suits the need to dry many different materials. You can dry for example grain and woodchips with the same equipment. Seasonal drying is also possible because of the mobility of the dryer. By drying nutrient rich materials they endure weather and they can be more effectively used as fertilizers. Drying also enables profitable transport of material because excess water has been removed.

ModHeat can dry for example:

  • Animal manure
  • Residue from a biogas plant
  • Grain
  • Other biomaterials
