Properties of wood pellets
Wood pellets are one of the most effective and environmentally friendly types of fuel. What are the reasons for that?
They have excellent calorific value – reaching up to 5,700 kcal/kg. They reach a very high energy conversion efficiency ratio when they burn – 90-95%, which is the reason for their great value as a source of energy.
They have very high density of 650 kg/m3, which makes them easy to store. This advantage combined with the effective control of the burning process reduces the consumption of pellets upon reaching a higher level of thermal comfort – compared to other fuels.
There are no harmful emissions from the burning process and the amount of ashes is minimal. There is no soot and the fireplace glass is not stained.
