What are the potential issues with using non ENplus®A1 certified wood pellets?
With customers using noncertified wood pellets, they are most likely going to encounter one of the following:
- Higher ash content –up to 10 times greater. More ash means less energy efficiency and increased boiler maintenance.
- Lower ash melting temperature – greater risk of clinker causing blockages on the grate and reduced efficiencies.
- Higher chlorine contents – The risk of accelerated heat exchanger corrosion in your biomass appliance.
- Higher percentage fines content due to lower durability.
- Very high chance of causing your appliance problems as soon as they enter the fuel delivery system. Non-certified pellets will look similar to certified pellets, you cannot tell the difference just from a visual inspection but they could behave very differently in your boiler.
