A modern equipped laboratory, combined with the long experience of BEA employees allows us a quick and competent answer to all questions within the field of fuel analysis. Periodical participation in laboratory comparisons tests demonstrate our laboratory performance and will ensure the accuracy and precision of the analysis results. 

Wood pellets quality (eg classes A1, A2 or B according to ISO 17225-2) is determined using several standardized analysis. Depending on the specific question, we provide analysis packages from the "small QS testing" (moisture content, ash content, mechanical durability, bulk density) up to full testing including all parameters.


Standard analysis of fuel parameters (selection):

Methods and equipment (selection):

  • Physical parameters:
    • water content, moisture (ISO 18134 / EN 14774)
    • bulk density (ISO 17828 / EN 15103)
    • particle size distribution
    • mechanical durability of pellets (ISO 17831 / EN 15210)
    • fines (ISO 18846)
  • Ash content (ISO 18122 / EN 14775) and volatiles (ISO 18123 / EN 15148)
  • CHN analysis (carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen according ISO 16948 / EN 15104) with Elementar MACRO cube
