Actuator solutions for pellet heaters

An increased focus on more CO₂ neutral heating systems has made customers take a serious look at wood pellets. Prices have aligned with those of gas and oil, making pellet ovens an even more viable solution. However, ovens need to be clean and ash and cinder removed to get the optimal amount of energy out of the wooden chips. Electric actuator solutions can add even more value to modern ovens:

  • Clean and low-energy movement
  • Easy installation with hardly any maintenance
  • Durable actuation tested and certified to withstand heat and dust

Reliability and durability are keywords when it comes to pellet heating. Combustion chambers need to be fed regularly, cinder has to be removed from burn pots to ash pans and pipes have to be dredged. Electric actuators move augers, shutters and valves to keep your pellet oven operational and optimise energy output.

Keep pellet heaters clean and automated
Intelligent actuator solutions help keep the interior of your pellet oven clean. This helps optimise energy output and prolongs the life of your heater. Integrated, and as part of the overall control system, electric actuators automate heating and saves energy compared to other solutions.

Make installation easy and render maintenance obsolete
LINAK actuators are easy to install. There are no pumps or compressors with attached hoses – everything is within the actuator itself. This means no need for maintenance – not even in the event of a power cut. Intelligent solutions feature alarms and emergency settings to keep the pellet heater safe.

Get durable and thoroughly tested solutions
Heat and dust are inevitable elements of a pellet heating system. This is why LINAK electric actuators are thoroughly tested and certified to cope with harsh conditions. And, the whole actuator solution is water resistant and allows for wiping or washing.
