To our knowledge, the single European standard is under development. In addition, the existing Western standards often include not only standard pellets themselves, as well as standards for their production, storage and transportation. Certificates for the pellets in Russia issued by different organizations. If you intend to sell the pellets abroad (which currently takes 95% of production) it would be logical to obtain a certificate of international accredited laboratories Incolab and SGS. However, for internal purposes you can do a certificate in domestic research institutes. The price difference is more than significant. As a rule, local laboratories all the tests done according to GOST, and Incolab and SGS for ISO, ASTM, SS, etc. on imported equipment.
As mentioned above, the only reliable way to check the quality of pellets is the burning of a certain count, so all our customers we propose to take a sample count of pellets, before purchasing a large volume. Pellets with a beautiful durable and resistant to abrasion, as well as magnificent in appearance (smooth and shiny) may contain non-metallic inclusions (sand), which will result in the formation of slag and eventually to stop the boiler.

Some clients prefer pellets packed in big bags – plastic bags cube about the size of 1×1 meter or the like. The use of big bags can afford to abandon entirely the hopper, the auger is inserted directly into the bag, that after the devastation utilized.
