Advantages of fuel briquettes in comparison with other types of solid fuel

  • The calorific value of briquettes is 4.5 -.. 5.0 kWh / kg, what is more than the wood and close to the calorific value of certain types of coal.
  • Briquettes require less space for storage and transport, one pallet of the briquettes weight 1 ton (about 1m3), equivalent to 3 - 4 m 3 of wood. Accordingly to that the cost of transportation and storage of fuel is significantly reduced.
  • Convenient packaging (generally 10 kg) allows you to unload and stack them by hand in the garage, basement or even in the pantry or on the balcony of the apartment.
  • Low ash content (0.5% - 1.0%), after combustion of briquettes remains ash, unlike all another types of solid fuel, which remain coal after combustion.
  • Emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere from the combustion of fuel briquettes is minimal.
  • Unlike wood, briquettes do not require a previous drying.
  • Fuel briquettes burn with a minimum amount of smoke and deos not sparkle.
  • Combustion Duration of briquettes: compared with normal wood stove to bookmark can be done several times less.
  • Constant temperature throughout the combustion of wood briquettes (for large combustion duration).
  • Briquettes, unlike pellets, can be replaced with other solid fuels (coal, wood) without a corresponding modernization of boilers and furnaces.
  • Possibility of long-term storage of briquettes without of worsening of the quality features and negative impact on the environment; improving working conditions of the boiler attendants.
