A pelletstove, what does it mean?

What does a pellet stove mean?

A pellet stove is still a relatively unknown concept on the Dutch market. Actually, a pellet stove resembles a traditional wood stove. One or more rooms in a house can be heated by means of a solid fuel (wood pellets). However, the pellet stove differs from the traditional wood stove. The pellet stove works with an automated principle. You fill the appliance with pellet granules (small pressed blocks of pure coniferous wood). The pellet stove then adjusts accurately with regard to the pellet supply, oxygen supply and desired temperature. In this way you are guaranteed a high efficiency, the experience of a wood stove, but you burn in a sustainable manner and you are no longer dependent on burning on natural gas.

Traditional pellet stove

There has been a wide range of traditional pellet stoves for many years. In principle, every pellet stove with the exception of the Dielle pellet stove with bottom feed works the same. The pellets are transported upwards by means of a mortar, after which they fall into a so-called burner tray. There is a hole pattern at the bottom of the burner tray to add oxygen. When some pellets fall into the burner tray, they are ignited by a combination of oxygen through the hole pattern and the heat of the already ignited pellets.
With this principle it is very important to continuously add sufficient oxygen to the combustion process. After all, without sufficient oxygen, the pellets cannot be ignited by the burning pellets in the burner tray. Characteristics of this are that daily maintenance of the burner tray is necessary to prevent blockages in the hole pattern of the burner tray. In addition, the system is characterized in a small and restless flame by the high degree of oxygen supply that is necessary for combustion.

Dielle pellet stove with bottom feeder

The Dielle pellet stove works with a patented bottom feeder, which means that the pellets are fed from the bottom into an open burner pot, in this way the pellets are first evenly dried and preheated without disturbing the combustion process.
This ensures an even degassing and a complete combustion with a nicer and quieter flames.

Advantages Dielle pellet stove with bottom feeder

The Dielle pellet stove with patented bottom feed naturally offers many advantages. We would like to take you through the following advantages over the traditional pellet stove:

1. Automatic cleaning. By supplying new pellets, the after-cinder ash residue is pushed over the fire ring and then falls into the ash pan. This means no manual or complicated systems to keep a burner tray clean.
2. Less Ash residues. Less emissions (reduction of up to 53% compared to traditional pellet stoves).
3. No disturbance of the combustion process as with pellet stoves where the pellets are thrown into a burner tray from above.
4. Calmer and more natural flames.
5. Also in low power choices a nice flame picture with the bottom feeder. Due to the unique properties of the system, you will experience a calm and natural flame picture even in the low power choices.
    
The bottom feeder also has advantages in the Stand-by or eco mode. If, for example, the temperature of your living room reaches the set temperature, the stove will go into stand-by mode, the stove will slowly go out. No pellets are consumed during the standby period. By extinguishing, the glowing parts will be stored in the bottom of the burner pot for a longer period of time. This allows the bottom feeder to make a quicker start-up and with a Dielle pellet stove you don't have to wait for a cooling and cleaning phase as with a traditional pellet stove.
