Pellet

Below you will find information about pellet.

Pellet is a solid material which is used as a combustible material, having a cylindrical form and is highly compact. It belongs to the category of solid fuels (biofuels) and is produced from wood processing products or plants (eg sawdust, cardoon). The pellet has the characteristic of low moisture content (approximately 10%) and so on combustion provide very high performance.
The price of pellet amounts approximately to 0,30 € / Kg, including VAT
By solid fuels refer to the solid materials which are used as fuel to generate power and heat at expansion. Solid fuels are wood, the pellet, the kernel, corn, wheat and other grains.
On a global scale, including in Greece, the most common solid fuel types is the pellet and wood.
It depends on the technical characteristics of the boiler. There are products that significantly slow down this process (froling) than others. Indicatively, whatever the time may vary between one day up to one month.
For reasons of economy and ecology. Solid fuel boilers can reduce heating costs by 40% -60% compared with oil boilers, while helping to protect the environment and emit few pollutants.
It depends on the type of combustible material (wood, pellet, core, etc.) from the characteristics of the product, from our needs for heating, the type of plant and the capacity of the fuel storage tank. Indicative autonomy about 1-3 days.
Absolutely no intervention. Just the addition of the solid fuel boiler and the abolition of the existing, if desired.
There is no subsidy program which relate to the change in the solid fuel boiler.
No, the solid fuel boilers can meet the heating needs without any support from oil or gas systems.
Yes, but the maintenance cost is no different from that of oil or gas boilers. Just an annual maintenance mechanical burner installer.
Yes, in accordance with applicable provisions concerning the operation of the statute of each building.
First we must define the meaning of the word "ecological". Each of us can interpret as he considers the term 'ecology' Our personal assessment (climatically) "eco" is the product that has been "charged" lower environmental impact at the stage of its creation, the collection of raw materials up to the stage of the withdrawal or recyclability.
The only sure thing that can be said is that the pellet gives off fewer emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) during combustion in connection with oil systems.
The ratio of these two types of fuel are:
1kg oil = 2kg pellets
The types stove / proofer available are:
Stove type air: Hot air in the space through "forced convection." It works like an air-condition or a fan.
Stove type multi: It works just like the stuff "type air" but also the possibility of connection offered with "air flow channels" (pipelines through which "released" air).
Stove formula sweat (hydro): The sweat-type heater generates air (smaller amount than the stove air), but has the ability to connect with the network of plumbing-radiators.
The differences which must be taken into account before the decision to move into a solid fuel system is the frequent power plant with combustible material.
According to the decision of buying a solid fuel boiler must be taken of the following factors:
1) Technical product features (automatic ignition, nominal yield of 91% or more pyrolysis technology, large fuel loading chamber, automatic ash extraction system, automatic fuel dosage control)
2) Certification nominal degree of boiler efficiency.
3) Time product warranty.
4) After sale service representative (service, spare parts stock, technical assistance, etc.)
5) produce Country Construction.
This clearly depends on the needs of each customer. We must emphasize that the boiler covering different needs from a stove. The boiler is a more "integrated" solution without requiring no compromise on comfort and ease of use. Stoves primarily cover the needs of uniform spaces and large rooms and 'outweigh' at their acquisition cost in relation to the boiler.
First we need to clarify that each case is special and unique. The building standards and the need for heating is also different from house to house and from human to human.
This view us is to contact a qualified engineer to advise on the implementation of an appropriate solution and to supply the right equipment.
Remember that the money you spend on a study of (mostly free) is negligible in front of the possibility of incorrect installation or poor mechanical equipment selection.
Finally we must not forget that the engineer is the one who undertakes the supervision and the responsibility in case of error.
