Wood Pellet Burner, PB-3550

PB-3550 wood pellet burner

The wood pellet burner is the technologically-enabling component of the Pellergy system.  The burner combines the necessary ingredients for complete combustion—heat, fuel and air—to produce a clean-burning flame to heat the boiler or furnace.

The wood pellet burner provides for fully automated combustion by incorporating an electronic ignitor, combustion blower and a photoelectric flame sensor.   The burner ignites the wood pellets, supplies combustion air and monitors the flame for proper operation.  Design features of the burner allow for very high temperature combustion without suffering the effects of corrosion or thermal breakdown.

Pellergy’s wood pellet burners are very efficient.  The burner operates on gasification principals to provide for the most compete combustion possible.  Primary combustion air gasifies the wood pellets within the burner, then pre-heated secondary combustion air is injected to produce a bright orange flame reminiscent of an oil burner flame.

The Pellergy wood pellet burner mounts directly on an existing boiler or furnace or can be used to fire a new system if desired.  It is also flexible and can be set up to meet the heat output (btu/hr) firing requirements of your existing system, just like an oil gun.  The wood pellet burner is set up, optimized and left to automatically fire your system and has an updated, integrated controller along with some other special features.

The inner burn chamber of the Pellergy burner is cleaned on a regular basis to remove the buildup of clinkers (noncombustible parts of the wood pellet).  An optional Automatic Cleanout system can be installed in the Pellergy burner to remove clinker buildup without user intervention, dramatically increasing the time between required maintenance.

The Pellergy controller is the brains of the system, allowing for fully automated operation with minimal input from the owner. The controller is based on a microprocessor which monitors input from your existing thermostat, the Pellergy burner and your boiler’s existing control system. This system provides the same level and consistency of heat you have been accustomed to with oil.

The controller also serves as the interface for the Pellergy burner system. As a Certified Installer you will set the entire system up using the Pellergy controller.  Only three settings provide all the input the system needs for fully automatic operation: The Start Amount of Pellets, Firing Rate and Air Rate—that’s all.

The controller generates outputs to indicate at what stage of the burn cycle the system is operating. It will also provide error messages in the event of a system shutdown.
