Frequently Asked Questions

Blue Flame Stoker is the most flexible biomass combustion system on the market. Blue Flame biomass heating systems can use a variety of biomass fuel including untreated, wood fuels that vary in heating value (green wood chips, dry wood chips, MSW, wood pellets, flax shive, flax straw). What fuel type you choose will largely depend on your storage capacity, system requirements and the availability of the fuel in your area. The important thing to note is that the quality of the fuel impacts the efficiency and life expectancy of your system, it is best to choose a good-quality, dry, biomass fuel.

Our systems are also used for heating greenhouses, hog barns, turkey and chicken barns. Blue Flame Stoker has been also used for grain drying applications. They are designed to carry either the entire heating load of your system (central heating system application). Our comprehensive application portfolio allows you to expand your biomass installation into a fully integrated system. Our boilers are used in hot water heating system applications and low and high pressure steam generation.

Our biomass heating systems are ideally suited for commercial and industrial applications, such as schools, hospitals, community heating systems, wood processing plants and more.
In a biomass heating system, the fuel cost is an estimated 50% of the total lifecycle cost. Choosing a high efficiency biomass combustion system and quality biomass fuel is the key in optimizing the operating cost of your system. Compared to traditional fossil fuels, the average cost per heat unit of biomass fuel is significantly lower in most areas in North America. While the investment cost of a biomass system may in many cases be higher than a conventional heating system, the fuel cost savings per unit of heat can offset the investment in a relatively short timeframe – making your biomass system as economical, as or better than a fossil fuel heating system. Plus, with a fuel source that is local and independent your fuel cost is less volatile than with traditional fossil fuel cost.
Yes! Today’s biomass heating systems are as safe and reliable as leading gas/oil heating systems. Equipped with advanced safety and fire protection devices, and a digital panel control, the entire system is closely monitored and controlled – from the fuel feed right to the heat transfer and flue gas evacuation. Blue Flame biomass fired boilers are built to ASME, Section IV requirements, are CRN registered, and have been tested to CSA/UL Safety Standards (including all safety controls).
Most modern biomass combustion systems, when professionally operated and maintained, reach similar emission levels to leading fossil fuel heating systems. Better yet, biomass combustion is CO2-neutral. Blue Flame biomass combustion systems meet the most stringent regulations.
