Grant Pellet Stores

Wood pellets can be bought in bags of various sizes (typically 10kg or 15kg), or alternatively they can be delivered in bulk load by taker and blown straight into a pellet store. Buying wood pellets in bulk is by far the more cost effective option, They can be fed via auger or vacuum directly into the boiler hopper, eliminating the need for manual filling.

Our bulk pellet stores come in sizes ranging from 500kg to 6 tonnes and are suitable for internal or external installation. They are also designed and manufactured by Grant, so you can be confident that you are getting the quality and reliability synonymous with the Grant name.

Store cyclone system
All Grant pellet stores larger than 1.5 tonne utilise a unique cyclone system to ensure the safe delivery of pellets when filling. This cyclone has been designed to take the place of a traditional impact protection mat, which can be found in some alternative makes of store.

Fitted at the top of the unit is a curved structure which is intended to reduce the impact of the pellets upon delivery while also guaranteeing that the store is evenly filled. The pellets enter via the tube section of the cyclone structure and follow the curve. As the pellets move around the curve, they lose their speed and, with gravity, gently fall to the bottom.

Location 
Whether installing your store internally or externally it is important to ensure that sufficient space is available. You will also need to have clear access for lorries to deliver the pellets so this needs to be considered when choosing a location. The pellet store must be mounted on a level, solid surface, i.e. concrete or paving slabs with a hard core base to a depth of at least 200mm. This must also extend past the footprint of the pellet store by at least 200mm. It’s important to remember that a minimal amount of dust can escape through the lid vent when filling a bulk pellet store. This may be particularly evident when the store is sited internally.

Only approved storage systems should be used with the Grant Spira, as the pellets must be kept free of moisture.

Please note, Grant Wood Pellet Stores are not suitable for use with Vecta boilers.
