The Stronga Heatex series of thermally efficient drying air control modules are designed to work alongside FlowDrya and/or Drying Stations to reduce the moisture content of wet materials. Stronga Heatex air tech modules are individually configured to optimise drying performance via optimal air temperature, airflow and air pressure from the energy available.
Stronga Heatex is fully compatible for use with UK’s RHI scheme. Stronga advise that the following clients consider Stronga Heatex Drying Solutions to add value while optimising waste heat utilisation:
Stronga Heatex is housed within a modular, weatherproof, lockable container that is sub-divided into 3 fully-sealed chambers - a control room, a fan and deep core heat Xchanger cold chamber, and an insulated warm drying air chamber.
Stronga Heatex can be specified with Drying Station ports and/or a FlowDrya port to suit requirements. Users can couple a static plant (FlowDrya) with a portable solution (HAF drying containers and HookLoada), providing ultimate flexibility in drying bulk capacities at any one time and simultaneously drying a range of materials.
Stronga Drying Stations are a 3 part system consisting of Heatex, HAF drying containers and HookLoada. Using HookLoada, customers can collect wet materials at the source, bring them back to Heatex to be dried (see below), and then deliver the dry output to the end user.
Stronga Heatex comes fitted with energy efficient direct drive plug fans with market-leading modern blade design. The super silent plug fan arrangement is easy to maintain, offering long life reliability with no belt chains or sprockets.
Dual Heatex plug fans offer an excellent working back pressure to dry a wide range of materials. With dual independently operated fans, if 1 fails the 2nd fan will continue to operate normally to allow drying operations to carry on. Heatex plug fans come fitted with an inverter to provide a soft start, reducing component stress and electricity usage.
Compare modern Heatex direct drive plugs fans to traditional centrifugal fans:
With energy efficiency being a key focus of Heatex owners, integrated dual plug fans are the ideal air handling solution, reducing energy consumption, CO² emissions and electricity load.
Every Stronga product is designed to comply with our core principle of only building environmentally-friendly and sustainable designs. The highly energy efficient heat Xchanger uniformly heats ambient air as it passes through the deep core fins to meet the specified drying temperature.
Customers enjoy easy heat Xchanger maintenance access via the large fan chamber door. The access door is fully rubber sealed. If the door is opened at any time during operation, a sensor automatically shuts down the machine to guarantee full user safety from moving parts. Operation status is transmitted via the easily visible Andon visual indicator.
Heatex delivers full control over drying performance via the smart control panel in the command chamber which features manual and automatic settings and visual display of set parameters. Discover a few of the control panel parameters:
Heatex operators benefit from duality of visual control with analogue and digital displays. It is vitally important that the user is fully informed about the parameters listed in the table below. The control panel data logs the key parameters to allow the user to make the best decisions regarding drying performance.
Digital sensors (on control panel)
|Flow and return water temperature||Flow and return water temperature & pressure|
|Flow and return water pressure||Ambient air temperature sensing|
|Exit drying air temperature||Exit drying air temperature & pressure|
With manual and automatic control and visual display of set parameters, the user can achieve optimal energy efficiency from the available energy supply. By taking control and optimising the dry output from FlowDrya and/or Drying Stations, the user can potentially increase income by tens of thousands per annum.
The well-proven Stronga Heatex is specifically designed for the demanding CHP market with reliable operation for often over 8000 hours/year. Unlike single-purpose seasonal machines like grain dryers which work for 100s of hours/year, Heatex is built to work day-in, day-out, potentially operating for up to 160,000 hours over a 20 year period.

The Heatex series of energy efficient air control modules come in a range of different sizes. For a single unit, Heatex ranges between 100-600kW but Stronga manufacture duplex Heatex models up to 2mW.
Heatex can be configured to suit the unique requirements of the site. If necessary, customers can tub stack multiple Heatex units using the module lifting points to make efficient use of site space.
