There are already many who know that amongst biomasses the pellets burn better than wood and develop a greater calorific value because almost all of the existing moisture is removed during processing. But the real convenience of pellets can be seen when they burn, if for the same quantity and programmed temperature pellets last longer and leave the stove cleaner and without any incrustrations, it means that the pellets are of excellent quality.
A key aspect to consider when it comes to the calorific value is the composition of pellets. In fact it may be hardwoods (beech and oak) and softwoods (spruce and pine). With regard to weight all woods have more or less the same calorific value, but since the hardwoods are denser they burn more slowly resulting in a longer lasting heat. However the softwoods or sweetwoods develop a greater amount of heat because they burn more quickly but using them as main fuel means that the stove has to be reloaded more often.
In order to offer you theright balance between calorific value, durability and combustion residue, we at BB Pellet mix different types of wood, all measured in such a way that makes it possible to obtain specific results and ideal performance for the home environment.
