Introduction: Biomass pellet fuel torage methods and precautions, many customers who use biomass pellet fuel for the first time are not very clear about how to store biomass pellet fuel, as well as storage precautions. Today YULONG will tell you about the storage of biomass pellet fuel methods and precautions!

Biomass Pellets Storage Method: Moisture and Fire Prevention Are the Core

Although biomass pellet is a kind of biomass fuel, it is actually what we commonly call firewood. Everyone who uses firewood at home knows that firewood cannot be wet or stored near the source of goods. For the same reason, biomass pellet fuel is no exception. The raw material of material pellets is our common wood waste such as sawdust, shavings, wood chips, etc. The core of its storage is two aspects: moisture-proof and fire-proof. Because too much moisture will affect the quality of biomass pellets, generally the calorific value of the larger moisture content is lower than that of the smaller moisture content. If the moisture content is too high, it will affect the combustion, and it is easy to be insufficiently burned, and it will be moldy and deteriorated when stored in a humid environment.

Autumn and Winter Biomass Pellet Fuel Storage: Focuses on Fire Protection

Due to the dry weather in autumn and winter, it is easy to cause fire, so the storage of pine biomass pellets should pay attention to the fire prevention work in the storage warehouse. Equipped with fire-fighting equipment and fire-fighting warning in the warehouse, fire should be extinguished in time in the budding stage. One ton of biomass pellets is only 1.2-1.3 cubic meters, so the biomass pellet fuel stored in a warehouse is worth tens of thousands. If the fire prevention work is not done well, major economic and property losses will occur.

In the Rainy Seasons in Spring and Summer, Moisture-proof is Essential

There is a lot of rain in spring and summer, and sometimes there will be continuous rainy weather, and the humidity of the air will increase. In the warehouse where biomass pellets is stored, it is not only necessary to ensure that there is no water leakage, but also to pay attention to ventilation and dehumidification work. If the moisture is greater than that of the pine wood pellet fuel, the biomass pellet will absorb the moisture in the air, which will make the biomass pellets incompletely burn and reduce the calorific value. Therefore, moisture-proof work is also an important task in the rainy season.

The above is the relevant knowledge of biomass pellets summarized in this article—Storage Methods and Precautions. The two tasks of Fire Prevention and Moisture Prevention are storage precautions that a biomass pellets manufacturer and user should pay attention to. I hope that after reading this article, you will have a new understanding of the storage of biomass pellets.
