AESI FMT Series

AESI FMT SeriesAlternative Energy Solutions International, Inc.’s FMT biomass hot air generator is ideally suited to reduce energy costs in industrial applications. Based on a technology developed over 50 years ago by Uniconfort, an ISO 9001 company, and now exclusively fabricated by AESI in the United States, the FMT Series are biomass generators which provide a steady flow of hot air for space heating. These compact units are ideal for recurring space heating situations as well as small drying requirements. The FMT high-performance hot air generator operates on solid fuels, such as sawdust, off-cuts, and chips while allowing continuous control of temperature and humidity, providing quick response time of the thermal delivery.

Superior Combustion SystemThe low grate temperature of the combustion system was designed to minimize klinkering by ensuring that the fuel and ash remain below fusion temperatures. A large, hand-laid firebrick refactory allows for efficient transfer of heat to the air. Primary, secondary, and tertiary air offers complete control of combustion modulation.
Designed For PerformanceThe FMT design is a feat of engineering that is over 50 years in the making. Many generations of product design and improvement have resulted in a highly automated, efficient, and user-friendly system that makes operating a biomass boiler nearly as simple as running a traditionally fueled system.
Smoke CollectorsSmoke collectors with doors for cleaning and inspection allow easy access and maintenance of the unit, with quick reach of the thermal delivery system. Quick Access DoorsQuick access doors allow for easy inspection and maintenance of the heat exchanger, increasing uptime and reliability of the unit.
