Wood Chip Biomass Fuel
Wood chips are small pieces of wood that have been cut to between 5mm and 50mm (measured in the direction of the grain). This is preferred over larger twigs and dust-like particles.
These can be included but if these twigs are too large they can ‘bridge’ and block the wood chip boiler feed system, too small and they can upset the combustion of the biomass boiler. The same can occur from high bark content, so some care is needed in the quality of the wood chip, which is dictated by the raw material, chipper type and sharpness of blade, handling, etc. In general this is taken care of by a wood chip provider who can prepare biomass fuel according to you requirements.
In order to produce wood chip fuel, trees are coppiced and the offcuts are chipped and then dried until the chip moisture meets requirements.
We supply G30 and G50 grade wood chip.
