Wood Pellet Heating
Wood pellet heating is an efficient and easy way to heat your home or business. The Fröling PE1 is the perfect boiler to heat your home or smaller business with BTU capacities between 68,000 to 120,000 Btu/hr. The Fröling PE1 is compact, quiet, with easy to use features, and an attractive price. For larger wood pellet heating applications including larger homes, commercial, and institutions there is the larger Fröling P4 wood pellet boilers, The Fröling T4 Wood Pellet and Wood Chip Boiler and the Fröling Turbomat boiler. These boilers can handle loads from 160,000 Btu/hr to 1.7MM Byu/hr and beyond with cascaded boilers.
Wood Pellet fuel is manufactured from milled wood particles including waste wood and, less commonly, bark, which are pressed through dies at very high pressure. The most commonly available wood pellet fuel is graded "Premium". Premium wood pellet fuel contains less than 1% ash and conforms to other important limits. Typically wood pellets contain less than 4% moisture. Wood Pellets can be purchased in multi-ton bulk quantities or in 20 or 40 lb bags. As a rough approximation, 17.5 lbs of wood pellets provide the same amount of heat as a gallon of heating oil. With these characteristics, wood pellets burn very efficiently. They are also very easy and safe to transport and store. Wood pellets have an average net BTU rating of 8,200 BTU/lb.
