What you should know
Köb wood heating systems are offered for diverse forms of wood fuel. See below for information about their storage and purchase.
Not only is the combustion of moist wood uneconomical, it can also lead to high emissions plus tar deposits inside the chimney stack on account of low combustion
temperatures. Wood offers its highest calorific value after being dried for several years under an open cover.
Here are a few tips:
- Split round logs with a diameter of 10 cm or more
- Stack logs in a ventilated and preferably sunny spot underneath a canopy
- If possible, stack logs with generous air gaps to enable flowing air to absorb the dissipating moisture
- Stack logs on a support timber so moist air can escape downwards
- Never store freshly cut wood in a cellar, as air and sunshine are required for drying. However, dry wood can be stored in ventilated cellars.
100 % natural waste wood is used to produce pellets compliant with DIN-Plus or ÖNorm. This raw material is waste matter created by the wood processing industry in large volumes through planing or sawing. Fine grained waste wood is compressed under high pressure and formed into pellets, i.e. pressed into a cylindrical shape. The fuel is stored and transported in perfectly dry conditions. Absolutely dry storage conditions must also be ensured by the system user. Perfect and effective combustion can only be ensured under these conditions. Pellets are offered in packs or loose in bulk. In their loose form, pellets are transported by silo tanker and pumped into the storage room via a hose system. If an oil heating system is to be completely replaced by a new pellet heating system, the room in the cellar that was previously used to store fuel oil is ideally suited for this purpose.
