Good reasons for
HD quality pellets
You get more from your heating with HD©
When conventional pellets burn, the pellet burner must constantly react to disadvantageous volume fluctuations in the supply and is always having to adjust the configuration parameters. The particularly high proportion of HD pellets in the ideal length range is the most important requirement for achieving the best possible level of efficiency in practice.
Save on heating costs with HD©
Thanks to the homogeneity and the low proportion of short wood pellets, the combustion chamber is always evenly filled. This results in a firebed with a balanced pore distribution. The benefit of this: better ventilation between the individual pellets. Because HD quality wood pellets burn more efficiently and cleanly, the consumption is reduced.
Reduce emissions with HD©
Thanks to the expedient combustion, the output of emissions is also reduced. Various research projects show that a large number of short wood pellets have a negative effect on the emissions. In comparison with conventional pellets, HD pellets have an approx. 37% lower carbon monoxide (CO) ratio in the flue gas.

Fewer fragments and less dust
The end surfaces of the wood pellets, owing to their brittle and porous form, are the main cause of abrasion and dust production. One tonne of conventional pellets, on average, consists of around 2.2 million pellets. This gives an end surface of around 70 m² on average.
One tonne of HD pellets, thanks to the high proportion of ideal length pellets, consists of just 1.5 million pellets on average with approx. 45 m² of end surface. This is a major advantage during blowing, as well as storage and handling of pellets. Quite simply, significantly fewer fine particles and less dust are produced.
Saves on heating costs
The ideal length distribution in the HD pellets also allows for optimal filling of the combustion chamber. Thanks to the homogeneity and the low proportion of short pellets, you get a firebed with even pore distribution. The benefit: higher air permeability between the individual pellets. Combustion is more efficient, consumption is reduced.
Better for the environment
Emissions are also reduced thanks to the improved quality of combustion. Independent studies by various research institutions have shown that too many short pellets and fragments also significantly affect the emissions: Thanks to their homogeneous pellet size, HD pellets produced up to 37% less carbon monoxide (CO) in the flue gas* in a comparison test.

In the combustion of conventional wood pellets, the inhomogeneity of the fuel presents the greatest challenge for the control systems. The heating system constantly has to react to detrimental fluctuations and readjust the configuration parameters. With the particularly high proportion of ideal length pellets, HD-Pelletstechnologie meets the most important requirement for achieving the best possible level of efficiency in practice.
Superior HD quality in your pellet store
The HD pellet technology is based on an entirely new manufacturing principle. The pellet strands are no longer “smashed to bits” as they were before, but rather are carefully cut to a defined length.
This is why HD pellets are not only more uniform and longer, but also have less damage to their surfaces and are more solid. As a result, HD pellets also offer the best conditions for transportation. The unique qualities of HD pellets are retained even in your pellet storage!
HD pellets are available as bulk product and in 15 kg sacks – 66 sacks per pallet, so 990 kg each. If you buy HD quality pellets as bagged goods, please always take note of the HD quality label with certification number – it is the guarantee of both quality and origin.
HD quality wood pellets guarantee the optimal performance for your pellet burner and help to protect the environment.

HD pellets in comparison
BETTER PELLETS ARE ALSO MORE BEAUTYFUL PELLETS
You can see the difference in quality – we are convinced of it. Regardless of the fact that the retailer also documents the HD quality delivered on the invoice.
With conventional production technology, the proportion of pellets in the ideal length range was generally only around 45% at the time of loading.
By converting to HD pellet technology, the proportion of pellets which are optimal for combustion regularly rises to some 85%.
Changing the pellet size in the transport chain
Wood pellets are put under a lot of strain during transportation and handling. The highest production quality thanks to the HD pellet technology allows for optimal condition and size of pellets right up to the customer’s fuel store.
