Pellets are currently one of the most popular heating materials in our country. Where did such popularity come from? Is it worth investing in a pellet boiler? Where to buy and how not to fall for a low-quality product? Today we answer the most important questions regarding the operation of pellets.
What is pellet?
At the beginning, it is worth taking a moment to tell what exactly is pellet. At first glance, they are just small rollers made of pressed wood shavings. In fact, the pellet production process (we are talking about a high-quality product here!) Is definitely more complex. The raw material is waste generated during wood processing. These can be chips and chips of various sizes, in other words, everything that is production waste. However, not every waste will produce pellets. The raw material is carefully selected, the reason for rejection is any contamination, both organic and, for example, chemical. The selected material is dried and then shredded to obtain a homogeneous fraction. The next step is to stabilize the humidity at the required, sufficiently low level, followed by granulation, i.e. the transformation of the shapeless raw material into a well-known form of pellets.
It is easy to see that the production process does not involve the use of artificial additives, binders and chemicals. Indeed, good quality pellets are completely natural, clean and ecological material. So we can burn with wood and at the same time take care of nature – after all, pellets were made of waste. But is such a material an efficient fuel? Definitely yes! The use of selected wood guarantees the appropriate calorific value, and thus energy efficiency. It is of great importance to control the entire production process so that the final product meets the assumed standards, and therefore has a low level of humidity. How does it burn with pellets?
Convenience and efficiency
Pellets are a fuel that is perfect for boilers equipped with automatic containers. In this case, the maintenance activities are limited to periodic refilling of the fuel container as well as routine control and care for the cleanliness and proper technical condition of the devices. It is much easier and cleaner than in the case of coal-fired boilers. The ash resulting from combustion is perfect as a fertilizer for the garden, but there won’t be much of it. One ton of burned pellets produces only about 3 kg of ash. Conveniently packaged pellet workowany it greatly facilitates not only the purchase and transport, but also storage and operation. The only condition that must be met by the user is to ensure that the fuel is not exposed to moisture.
Effective use of pellets requires investment in fuel of the highest quality. It is worth trusting proven and reliable suppliers, and here SAM-BUD-ROL is the leader.
