GILLES WOOD CHIP HEATINGS HPK-RA 25 - 160
Two-family houses, agricultures, gastronomy, commerce, as well as local heat networks are best supplied with pleasant heat by our wood chip heating plants. Of course, the plants are operated fully automatically. The fuel, wood chips or chip material depending on region, very often comes from our customers' own forests and therefore is by far the most cost-efficient fuel. With the GILLES wood chip heating systems, we enable our customers to use their own resource from the forest as a low-cost fuel. We ensure reliable operation, high efficiency and concurrent heating comfort.
WOOD CHIP HEATINGS OVERVIEW
WHAT ARE WOOD CHIPS OR CHIP MATERIAL?
Wood chips are made to 100 % of wood and have a calorific value of about 4.0 kWh (=14.4 MJ), depending on wood type.
Chipper chop residual wood from the forest, weak wood and other wood of minor value, e.g. from thinning, cut material from agricultural care measures or old wood. This wood cannot be processed into higher-value products by the industry. Depending on tree type, the properties of wood chips may vary, in particularly regarding water content. The water content influences the calorific value of the chipped material, as well as its storage capacity. The lower the water content, the higher the calorific value.
Wood chips with a water content of less than 30 % are deemed "suitable for storage". Wood chips fresh from the forest, in contrast, contain a water share of 50 to 60 %. Freshly harvested softwood has a calorific value that is at about 2 kWh/kg; the heating value at 20 % water share is twice as high, at about 4 kWh/kg.
WHO USES WOOD CHIPS FOR HEATING
Usually, these are farmers with their own forests, who use their own wood chips from cut wood for heating.
Wood chip heating also is the ideal heating version for local heat networks and commercial operations. It is very simple because the fuel is extremely cost-efficient and thus also protects the environment.

HEATING CIRCUIT CONTROL VIA GILLES-TOUCH
The master bedroom usually is supposed to be cooler than, e.g., the bath or the child's bedroom. The temperature in the respective rooms is subject to your control. Via Gilles Touch, we offer heating circuit control by which you can control the temperature and the heating times in every single room. You can even do it from the other end of the world, if necessary. It is made possible by the GILLES-Touch mobile.

HOW DOES THE GILLES WOOD CHIP HEATING WORK?
FUEL FEEDING SYSTEMS
The fuel feeding we offer are just as diverse as our customers' needs.
The articulated-arm removal, for example, is built very solidly and permits highly efficient transport of the wood chips at very low power consumption by an oil immersed helical gear. The walking floor feeding system is very well suitable for chip material transport from large storage rooms. There are also systems by which several boilers can be supplied at once. Whichever you choose - contact us! We will surely find the matching version for you!
HINGED ARM SWEEP COLLECTOR
The hinged arm sweep collector convinces with its solid and long-lived build. The spur gear offers an output system with a very high efficiency at very low power consumption.
• High efficiency > 95 % due to the spur gear
• Up to 4 m diameter
• Stable auger
• Continually welded auger blade
• Progressive auger pitch
• Large auger channel
WALKING FLOOR TRANSPORT SYSTEM
The walking floor is the ideal system for transporting the wood chips from larger store rooms.
The hydraulic power pack and generously sized augers ensure interference-free operation.
WOOD CHIP STORAGE SYSTEMS
There are several options of storing the chip material. In an earth bunker, a silo, a separated room or simply in a container for more mobility. Storage can take place at ground level, in the basement, on the first floor or in a side building.
No matter what you pick - it is best if the storage site is in direct proximity of the wood chip heating, so that he fuel can be transported there well.
If you want to use an existing room or build a new one, dry and well-ventilated places are ideal. If you do not have a room to match, you can use silos or containers. The space required for an annual supply of wood chips is approx. 1.5 to 2 cubic metres (m³) per kW heating load. At 30 kW, the reference for the value as of which a wood chip heating really starts to pay off, this would be 45 to 60 m³.
GILLES WALKING FLOOR CONTAINER
Wood chip users do not need to do without the amenities of our heating containers either. Do without newly constructing a dedicated fuel storage room instead. We offer the walking floor container as an alternative. It ensures smooth operation with a hydraulic power pack and a generous sized auger. This container solution is very good for commerce, industry and local heat networks.
Your Gilles specialist will review your personal situation on site and will be sure to find the best and most cost-efficient solution for you.
