Pellets are a worthy alternative to most familiar fuels, like coal, diesel and firewood.
Pellets are a compressed waste of wood production, it has a cylindrical shape. Both industrial and domestic boilers are heated with this fuel.
Pellets are manufactured from timber and wood waste. Their colour depends on the raw material and the temperature of granulation (the higher the temperature is, the darker are the pellets), but their quality should not be judged by the colour: pellets are made from recycled materials. It can contain various impurities, used in the manufacture of furniture; they are often white and yellow and have red scale on the grate boiler after the combustion. The pellet boiler can be paid for itself in two or three years, in spite of its high cost, and you can save the expense of cheap fuel. The advantage of heating with pellets is no restriction on capacity, that means, you can heat several buildings therewith.
Fuel pellets and briquettes are well suited for heating homes, greenhouses, cottages and other premises. They are easy to store and transport, also to load into the furnace. During the operation, pellets produce a very little ash and smoke, and give more heat than wood and coal. This is an environmentally friendly fuel.
Pellets refer to alternative fuels. 1.6 tons of pellets are equivalent to 1000m³ of natural gas.
