What Type of Wood Can Be Used in a Talbott Heater System?

Share this Post

At Talbott’s Biomass Energy Systems, we understand that choosing the right fuel for your wood heater is important. Our systems are designed to be versatile and efficient, utilising a wide range of wood-based materials to generate heat for your workshop or factory.

In this blog post, we’ll explore the types of wood that work best in Talbott heater systems.

Wood Waste Makes Wonderful Fuel

Talbott heaters excel at burning various wood by-products, transforming waste into usable energy. Here’s what you can use:

  • MDF (Medium-density fibreboard) Offcuts and Dust: Often considered a challenge for conventional heaters, Talbott systems efficiently burn MDF scraps and dust.
  • Chipboard, Plywood, and OSB (Oriented Strand Board): These common wood panel materials are perfect fuel sources for your Talbott heater.
  • Sawdust & Shavings: Don’t let sawdust and shavings go to waste! Talbott heaters can burn them cleanly and efficiently.
  • Wood Chips and Shredded Pallets: Even bulkier wood waste like chips and shredded pallets can be fed into your Talbott system.

Traditional Firewood Options

While Talbott systems specialise in wood waste, we can also handle more traditional firewood options:

Softwood: Pine, spruce, and fir are all suitable softwood choices for your Talbott heater.
Hardwood: Oak, ash, and birch offer excellent burning properties for long-lasting heat generation.

Maximising Efficiency

For optimal performance, ensure your wood fuel is:

Dry: Properly dried wood burns hotter and cleaner, reducing emissions and maximising heat output.
The Right Size: Wood pieces should be appropriately sized for your specific Talbott heater model.
