Market of Oak Wood Pellets

Using wood pellets as fuel is not only clean, but is mostly climate-friendly. In a small scale usage, wood pellets seemed pretty modest, but once you think of the so many advantages of it as fuel on massive boilers in the world, the greater chances of us salvaging the environment.

wood pellets market

Wood pellets are essentially made from compacted sawdust by use of pellet mill and related industrial wastes from the milling of lumber, manufacture of wood products and furniture, and construction — so you see how this is very economical and environment friendly. Talking about wood pellets, there are so many types of wooden pellets available in the market today, and these are all based from the type of wood they are initially from. There are hardwood pellets and softwood ones, and most of the time these pellets are mixed with other extenders. One wooden pellet that we can recommend though is the Oakwood pellet. This is the kind of pellet that offered in 2011, that in fact, gained a lot of consumers since then because of its great characteristics.

Pellets made from hardwood are more reliable compared to the ones made from softwood, as they burn longer than the latter. When we talk about out oakwood pellets, these are the type of pellets that are made from sawdust of its own kind. The benefits of doing so? Simple — the quality and its composition will be fully under control. This is very important in the production of a high quality pellet. Oak sawdust has very little resin, and reaming is an important procedure in its production. Pellets made of pure oak sawdust, contains no binders, adhesives, chemicals.

BBQ pellet making needs a wood base which helps in the pellets be intact, and these are mostly the hard substance of the pellets. There are 2 most commonly used bases for BBQ pellets making — alder and oak. For most of flavored pellets like the hickory or mesquite ones, about 75% alder and 25% of the main flavor is used (as in mesquite or hickory, or any other flavour).
However, there are also many BBQ manufacturing factories who use 100% oak. Whether the Oakwood pellets are light brown or have a darker shade, they're both of high quality, as opposed to common hearsay. Lighter pellets are only due to used oak sawdust.

Oak pellets versus Coniferous Tree pellets

Oak trees belong to the deciduous species, and are also known to be hardwoods. Coniferous Tree species on the other hand are what we call softwoods. Hardwoods have a 30% longer burning time than softwoods. The colors of the pellets also vary; hardwoods are lighter while softwoods are a bit darker in color. Common misconception about the colors especially for oakwood pellets is that it contains bark, which would mean a lower quality pellet — but that is not true - especially if you see your pellet with a darker shade as a whole. Those pellets that have irregular dark shades can be identified as pellets incorporated with bark. The Oakwood pellets we have are of pure quality and 100% oak, so whether it has a lighter or darker shade as a whole, you can be sure that it is a quality pellet.

How do you know if the pellet mill of high quality?

The most simple way to tell the quality of a small pellet mill is check its produced pellets. Aesthetics is one main factor in determining whether the finished pellet is of good quality or not.

  • The color does not necessarily mean a lower quality pellet when it comes to our Oakwood pellets. Just make sure that the pellet has a uniformed shade.
  • Another thing you should look out for is its hardness or softness — the harder the pellet is, the better the way it is manufactured — this is because harder pellets underwent a better technology in the making, and its hardness is the main evidence for that. For the surface checking, it should be shiny and compact. Important parameters of the quality are heating power, water content and ash content.
