Heat Resource Premium Oak Hardwood Pellets are compressed, so they take up less space then other forms of wood fuel, in convenient 40-pound or 28.6 -pound bags. Heat Resource Premium Oak Hardwood Pellets are smooth and uniform, so they easily “flow” in automated fuel handling systems.
Heat Resource Premium Oak Hardwood Pellets meet or exceed the standards for premium quality pellet fuel, as specified by the pellet fuels institute for the following characteristics:
Density – consistent hardness and energy content (minimum 40lbs./cu. ft.)
Dimensions – to assure predictable, jam proof fuel flow (maximum 1 – 1/2″ length and 1/4″ – 5/16″ diameter)
Fines – minimal dust from pellet breakdown while loading and during stove operation(no more than 0.50% by weight)
Chlorides – limited salt content to avoid rust and corrosion of stove and vent (no more than 300 parts per million)
Ash – an important factor in estimating maintenance frequency (no more than 0.50%)
