Introduction a benefit machine – wood pellet machine. Wood Pellets are a type of biomass fuel, generally made from waste wood. This takes the form of either compacted sawdust produced as a byproduct of saw-milling or grinding wood chips produced from logging operations. The pellets are extremely dense and can be produced with a low moisture content (lower than 10%) that allows them to burn at a very high combustion efficiency. Now, millions of households around the world either use wood pellet fuel as their primary fuel source, or at the very least as a supplementary heating source.
What about Wood Pellets energy output and efficiency? High-efficiency wood pellet stoves and boilers have been developed in recent years, offering combustion efficiencies of over 90%. Wood pellet boilers – having limited control over the rate and presence of combustion compared to liquid or gaseous-fired systems – are particularly suited for hydronic systems due to the hydronic system’s greater ability to store heat.
In 2005, the demand for pellet heating has increased in European and North America, and a sizable industry is emerging and pellet availability and cost may be an issue. However the pellet production is increasing but several new pellet mills online in 2008-2009.
In the meantime, thousands of people are moving towoards a more sustainable and stable fuel choice – Wood Pellets.
