Fuel Pellets

Pellets are a worthy alternative to traditional fuels, such as diesel fuel, coal and firewood. The only competitor may be natural gas supplied through the pipeline. If we consider only the cost of fuel, then, of course, heating with gas is a little cheaper than heating with pellets. However, if you take into account the cost of a new connection in places where there is such a possibility (project coordination, communication laying, etc.), pellets also win here.

 

Pellets (wood pellets) are a cylindrical shaped pressed wood waste. Globally, pellets are widely used as fuel for automated boiler houses, both domestic and industrial, due to the fact that they have a significant ecological component, have a calorific value comparable to coal, and are comparatively cheap. 

  • 6 mm pellets

  • low ash content (under 0,35%)

  • high calorific value

  • white wood mostly

  • ENplus A1 certification

  • SBP certification for industrial customers

  • packed in 15 kg bags with your design or
    as a bulk shipment for industrial customers

The pellet sizes are usually 6-8 mm in diameter and round 30-40 mm in length, depending on the raw materials used and the quality of the pellet production. However, it should be noted that there are pellets of other sizes. The main raw material for the production of pellets is white wood, however, good pellets are also obtained from hardwood raw materials. The moisture content of the pellets is 7-10%, which allows them to be successfully used in pyrolysis boilers (though, after a little revision
of the latter). The density of pellets is 1.5, therefore, despite the fact that they are made of wood, pellets are drowned in water.
 
The calorific value of 1 kg of pellets = 5 kW * h, which is approximately 1.5 times more than firewood. Approximately enough,
but very figuratively, we can say that the energy content in one kilogram of pellets equals the energy contained in half a litre
of liquid fuel. And this kilogram will not spill over your house, polluting and leaving behind an unpleasant smell, and will not explode from an accidental spark....
