The key to “fuel cost savings” is improving its calorific value ie “moisture”, we aim to deliver chip at your desired moisture content required for your boiler, this can be achieved via our quality seasoned timber and our specially designed factory drying floor. Thereafter, its up to your fuel storage and Boiler, most Boilers will have a “Stepped Grate System” within the burn chamber, this helps to further dry the chip before entering the combustion zone, and on most occasions should get your fuel to the required moisture. As per the above graph, this will create a higher “Heating Value” that can be 4090kWh per tonne @ 20 to 25% MC.
“The performance of Microgeneration Solid Biofuel Heating Systems is impossible to predict with certainty due to the variation of the climate, your fuel storage and Boiler set up, our aim is to deliver the correct levels of moisture however due to factors outwith our control this may vary.”
The table below highlights the benefits of quality chip
This is a massive increase in the cost of heat. Therefore it is crucial you achieve the correct Moisture content
