Our Badger Pellets®® are certified DIN plus (conforming to European quality standards EN14961-2), the most demanding German certification, which takes into account the products's characteristics as well as the manufacturing process.
The pellet production facility uses only fresh, debarked wood. The raw material for the manufacture of wood pellets consists of sawdust, wood chips and fresh, small-diameter logs, which cannot be used for any other purpose and where we control the characteristics and variations. The final quality of our pellets depends, in fact, on the quality of these raw materials. Thanks to this stability of materials, BADGER Pellets® have consistent and optimum quality which are ideal for the operation of your stoves and boilers.
The logs are first debarked and then cut and reduced to chips after which they are transferred to a wet silo consisting of wood chips and sawdust.
Following this treatment, we remove potential ferrous metals from the material flows with a magnetic separator. The sifted sawdust is transported in a low-temperature dryer, while the larger chips are fed to a crusher in order to be fragmented. They are then screened once again.
In the low-temperature dryer (the necessary energy coming from the thermal heat generated via the cogeneration facility), The sawdust is spread over a wide strip running up and down driven by the heated air, and dried until a moisture level of approximately 10% is obtained. They are then transported to the silo. Dried sawdust is then sent on to the pellet presses where the wood is subjected to high pressures during its passage through the channels (extrusion), and is thus transformed into pellets. Finally, the pellets produced are cooled, screened and then placed in the pellet silo.
We then have an efficient distribution network ! Pellets are transferred from a silo to a filling facility, which then allows blower trucks to be loaded for bulk delivery. To provide a commercial supply BADGER Pellets®® are distributed in Luxembourg by Husting – Reiser et Petit. Each distributor has its own blower trucks (approved by metrology) to provide the best service and a high-quality product for you. BADGER pellets can also be delivered to you in 15Kg bags.
