MODHEAT®

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.

About us

Company details

SFTec was founded in 2013 as a spin-off company from the University of Oulu. The idea for our main product ModHeat stems from the metallurgical industries’ need for more cost-efficient material dryer. The solutions before were either too large and expensive or too small and inefficient.

We started developing the dryer in close project cooperation with research institutes and Universities. First step was to build a small pilot device to test the technology. This very device is still operational and used to test new materials. Finally after many different events, we ended up developing the full-scale device in a marine container. This product was build together with our customers following their needs and wishes. During the years we have learned a lot about properties of different materials.

We manufacture and develop industrial dryers that are based on our own patented technology. We also offer material drying as a service to our customers. We are an innovative technology company and experts in drying technologies, process engineering and circular economy. We also develop and commercialize other innovations that aim to enhance productivity for our customers. We want to develop new circular economy based business with our innovations together with our customers.
