Splitting Logs For Biomass

24 Hours a day, 7 days a week

 

We provide high grade wood chip to small boiler users as well as power stations

It is critical to keep moisture content down so that the woodchip produces a high energy > heat output rather than converting the moisture still retained in the chips to steam.

The best method for achieving this is to split the trunks,the tree trunk retains alot of water even when it has been felled, in laymans terms it is effectively a sealed tube filled up with water,so by splitting the trunk it allows the water to escape by evaporating,drying out the log and reducing the moisture content.

We use a 45 ton splitter to split the logs down ready for re-stacking in wind rows by doing this we can season log wood very quickly, it takes approximately 2 months to produce seasoned logs ready for chipping,where previously it would take years.

 

 

"F. has wished me to write and thank you for the excellent job you and your team did last Thursday. He reached the conclusion that our back garden looked like a mini stately home after you had finished! I must admit I think it is the best work you have ever done, and has been admired by several of our friends." (Hedge trimming) - Mrs Martin, Guildford
