Characteristics and description
Fuel pellets are a type of granular solid fuel, which is compressed dry wood waste. Many woodworking companies are setting up special pellet mills to reduce waste. Their main advantage is that they are economical and environmentally friendly, as they burn longer than ordinary wood, give more heat and are easier to use, and are also a recycled product.
Basically, pellets are divided into varieties depending on the raw materials from which they are made.
The highest quality pellets are obtained from various types of wood without any impurities. They have the best calorific value and the least amount of ash.
Pellets from various crops, straw and untreated wood - second grade - are slightly darker than the previous ones, but practically do not differ in time and heat of combustion.
The most less popular types of pellets are from peat. They are practically not popular due to the strong difference in calorific value and ash content.
Granules are produced from sawdust and pre-dried fiber cleaned from excess impurities, crushed into dust. To hold the wood flour together and allow the pellets to remain firm and firm, a safe binder for the wood itself, lignin, is used. When heated, it firmly glues the pressed flour together and allows it to take the shape of a cylinder. In the production of pellets, glue or other various synthesized adhesives are never used, which makes them safe to use.
Small volume. The volume of such pellets is much smaller than the volume of wood, they are very compact and lighter in weight, which allows them to gain in volume and simplify storage and transportation.
Less moisture. They also have more than two and a half times less moisture than wood. There are no various impurities, for example, resin, during combustion, much less ash is formed, which simplifies further cleaning of the furnaces. Due to the fact that the pellets are compressed and have practically no water, they burn longer and do not emit toxic substances.
More secure. Ordinary firewood is also inferior in fire safety - pellets are less susceptible to spontaneous combustion than other types of solid fuels and are not subject to decay or the effects of the external environment.
Wood pellets are used both in everyday life and in industry. For their use, both modern pellet boilers and simple stoves for heating a house are suitable. In industry, pellets are often used as a low carbon alternative to coal to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
