System Components

  • Fully automated System : Wood is processed and delivered to a holding container for storage, and then transported from the holding tank to a boiler at a standardized rate when needed. The entire process is operated and controlled by a computer and laser, which work together in measuring the loads on the conveyor and in the tank.
  • Semi-automated or as surge bins : These are like the automated system, but work on a smaller scale that requires more manpower for operation. The container for wood storage is typically smaller, and the integrated conveyor belts are less complex.
  • Pellet-fired : The wood used here are a form of processed wood, known as pellets. These pellets are generally more expensive, but they are easier to manage since they are uniform and small. As a result of their form, this wood type is considered to work more efficiently. Typically the storage devices used for these pellets are silos, which allows them to be gravity-fed to boilers, as opposed to utilizing a conveyor.
