The manufacture of pellets is the grinding of raw materials, for example, sawdust or bark, in a special crusher to a state of flour. The resulting mass is sent to the dryer, and then to the pellet press, where granules are obtained from the wood meal by compression. Compression in the process of compacting increases the temperature of the material, and the lignin contained in the wood becomes softer and glues small particles into dense cylinders.
Pellets offered by PHOENIX Trade Company (EN PLUS A1 certified) guarantee high calorific value and represent an effective, ecological and economic alternative to fuels such as gas and oil, and also guarantee an environment with neutral CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
Due to high dryness and high density, pellets provide a high calorific value in comparison with wood chips or wood.
It is known that from a boiler house running on diesel fuel or on coal often comes an unpleasant smell. Pellets do not emit a smell during combustion, and, as a rule, due to the high efficiency of the boiler equipment, the smoke from the pellets is practically colorless
Pellets are delivered to the end consumer, packed in plastic bags weighing 15 kg. Some customers prefer pellets packed in big bags – cubic plastic bags about 1×1 meter in size or the like.
Phoenix Company also offers a number of “uncertified” pellets that are the premium quality and fully comply with the current European standards
