Is your cellar
a suitable storage room?

  • Pay attention to the room dimensions and the distance from the boiler

  • Dampness and moisture make pellets unusable

  • Ensure complete emptying with a sloping floor

Matching our innovative boilers to the best possible storage solutions has been part of ÖkoFEN’s focus from the beginning. 

 

This means we have unrivalled know-how and an unsurpassed range of solutions for adapting cellars and other rooms for pellet storage. 

 

We can provide advice on every aspect of storage, from the correct amount of space for your system through to all-inclusive solutions with bespoke floor plans and automated pellet transport to the boiler.

 

Pellet storage room requirements

Rectangular and narrow rooms are of advantage to be used for pellets storage. A sloping floor ensures complete emptying of the storage room. Dry indoor conditions are a prerequisite, since the pellets would swell and became useless in contact with damp walls.

THE SIZE OF THE STORAGE ROOM

THE SIZE OF THE STORAGE ROOM

The total heat load of a building determines the ideal size of the required storage room. As a rule of thumb, the following formula can be used: each 1 kW heat load = 0.9 m³ storage space (including voids).


In principle, it is better if the storage room is rectangular and no wider than two metres. The narrower the room is, the lower the inbuilt inclines will be and the more space can be used.

EMPTYING THROUGH SLOPING FLOOR

EMPTYING THROUGH SLOPING FLOOR

A sloping floor is the ideal configuration for a pellet store, allowing the space to empty completely of pellets. Not only does this allow for the maximum efficiency in feeding the fuel to the boiler, but it removes the need to clean the store room manually each year by avoiding a build-up of unused pellets.


With a sloping floor, the pellets slide to the delivery auger in the centre of the store. ÖkoFEN can supply angle brackets designed to give the optimum angle for a sloping floor substructure.

KEEP CLEAR
OF MOISTURE

Ideally the storage room should be adjacent to an exterior wall. Should the storage room be internal the filler pipe and outlet pipe should be directed to the outer walls.

 

No light switches; sockets; lights or joint boxes should be installed in the pellet room itself.
