Grant pellet stores rolling off the production line
A biomass boiler is a great alternative to fossil fuel when it comes to reducing annual fuel bills. Now Grant UK has made it even easier to store the fuel used by its Spira condensing biomass boilers and reduce fuel costs even further by introducing the Grant Wood Pellet Store.
While wood pellets can be bought in bags (typically around 10 to 15kg), if space is available, a bulk store can be installed which can directly feed (by auger or vacuum system) the intermediate Grant pellet hopper supplied as standard with the boiler. This allows homeowners to buy pellets in bulk, which is more cost effective.
The Grant Wood Pellet Store range is designed and manufactured in house and available in sizes from 500kg to 6 tonnes and in three footprints – 1m x 1m, 1m x 2m and 2m x 2m. All stores have an easy access maintenance door for cleaning, galvanized steel construction and are suitable for internal or external installation. The 500kg and 750kg models come ready assembled and are available in a powder coated finish. The 1.5 – 6 tonne sizes are supplied flat packed with quick seal joints for on-site construction.
The EN Plus Grade A1 wood pellets approved for use with the Grant Spira are classed as a carbon neutral source of fuel, as they are made from either sawdust (a waste product in sawmill industries) or sourced from a managed forest (where trees are planted to replace those cut down).
