The importance of wood fuel quality

Wood Fuel QualityWith wood fuel quality being of great importance Woodsure certifies that woodfuel conforms to a certain standard, that fuel is the correct size and moisture content for your appliance, and that the supplier understands how to ensure fuel is delivered to you without compromising this standard. These factors are central to ensuring the smooth operation of a wood fuel appliance.

Lower operating costs

Sub-standard fuel from poor quality timber, or lax production and storage techniques, can lead to a range of problems. The most common fuel quality issues that can affect appliance operation are:-

  • Quality and origin of the basic material, compromised by incorrect moisture content, high ash content or the presence of contaminants such as soil or stones.
  • Inappropriate storage of the fuel during production or trading, leading to degradation of the product through contamination or the introduction of impurities.
  • Oversized particles – in an automated system these can clog the feeder that conveys fuel to the combustion chamber.
