Influence of Weather Conditions on Moisture Permeation Rate in Various Types of Pellets

G. Tannenberg
The paper presents experimental results of laboratory research. Tests were done on several hundreds of pieces of pellets made of wood (forest waste), sunflower hull, straw and wheat bran. These types of pellets are most commonly used for co-combustion in Polish power stations. The measurement stand enabled testing of influence of air humidity, air temperature and air flow speed on moisture permeation rate in single granule of each type of pellets. In a limited way...
