Why Choose A Premium Pellet?
GES Pellets Properties
The table below outlines the wood pellet properties that you can expect from GES Pellets. GES values shown are the properties determined by an EN standard independent analysis of average values in our pellets.
Wood Pellet Quality – What to look out for
A high calorific value (CV) means there is more energy/heat in every kilogram of pellets the boiler consumes, thus saving money over equally priced lower CV alternatives.
Good pellet quality can also affect your heating system in a positive way:
Low ash content not only reduces routine cleaning and maintenance, but indicates high fuel purity and cleaner combustion. Low natural soot and ash residue mean less build-up on heat exchanger surfaces, in turn maintaining boiler efficiency and extending boiler life.
High ash fusion or melting temperatures coupled with low ash content reduce potential for clinker formation. Clinker is the incombustible lumps of residue that can build up on the boiler grate, it is a significant factor in wood pellet quality, often disabling the boiler, causing bad combustion conditions and resulting in the need for expensive replacement parts.
Low dust content is an important factor in wood pellet quality – over time dust concentrations can build up at the bottom of the fuel store through what is known as segregation, this will eventually block fuel feed systems and cause efficiency problems.
High mechanical durability means pellets are less prone to breakdown and crumbling during transport and in fuel feed augers, thus maintaining pellet consistency and reducing dust.
GES pellets are ideal for biomass boilers. With excellent durability, consistency and combustion properties, our pellets cause minimal blockage, cake-up and ash in your boiler.
