Why choose Nielsen heat logs?
These hot, dense and long lasting wood briquettes, delivered on a pallet, are suitable for use in fireplaces, log and multifuel stoves, log burners, firepits and log boilers. They are particularly good for fireplaces as they light easily and burn less quickly than the Pini-Kay Heat Logs. They are made from 100% clean virgin sawdust dried to around 10%. They have a great natural look and are very versatile. In our comparison of value for money, considering burn time, heat release and price, Nielsen briquettes came out tops!
This renewable biomass fuel is made from Pine (70%) and Spruce (30%) sawdust (sawmill byproducts) with no additives. They have a hole down the middle to assist air flow. These heat logs hardly expand at all and look great in a fire. Finally, these briquettes release up to 25% more heat when compared with seasoned logs at 25% moisture (heat output of 4.61 kWh/kg (16.61 MJ/kg) in briquettes against 3.69 kWh/kg in seasoned logs).
How are the briquettes made?
The heat logs are made from mixed dried virgin pine and spruce wood sawdust in an original Danish-made Nielsen press which applies incredibly high pressure with additional heating of briquette surfaces. As a result the briquettes are over 2 x as dense as kiln-dried logs and have a smooth and slightly brownish surface. No additives or binders are added because natural lignin in the wood binds sawdust after high pressure and temperature are applied.
What are the briquettes like?
These briquettes are of a light brown colour and release a delicate flavor of wood when you open the package. They do not expand, spark, or spit when burning.
Each briquette measures approximately 90mm (3.5 in.) in diameter x 270mm (11 in.) length with a hole down the middle which creates additional draught and ensures the briquettes burn both inside and outside.
There are five briquettes in a 10kg clear polythene bag. They are very clean and easy to handle. The pallet is shrink-wrapped and contains cardboard corners inside and black straps on the outside for a reliable and neat-looking package.
How to get the most out of this product?
To achieve the longest possible heat release time, load 3-4 briquettes and turn air inflow down as far as practicable. They produce good flame during the first 40-45 minutes of burning and then glow giving steady heat. Burning and heat release time in different appliances will depend on air inflow setting, number of briquettes loaded, outside temperature, and size of appliance and can range anywhere from 1 hour to over 3 hours. They produce minimal ash and smoke.
Can't fault them what they they do
Great product. Well wrapped and burns well, lasts longer than other heatlogs I tried
Expected burn time was 4hours. On an open fire 2 burnt together lasted less than 1 hour. Far too expensive.
Match my expectation - quality product well packed in polythene (or similar)
They burn really well, can sometimes take a while to get going, but once up and running, they last for about 2 hours. Easy to handle and easy to store.
long burning with good heat output
Great product.well packaged.fast despatch
Take a bit of getting used to but the Nielsen briquettes burn for a long time, have relatively little ash and give out great heat.
Super warm fires and good burning time.
look good and burn well. Very pleased
great burning I would recommend this product
very pleased with product and next day delivery
As expected there are a lot of Nielsen briquettes about I had tried them before -- Blazers made with Nielsen press.
The briquettes burn as described
The logs come in very handy packs and burn super hot....:the only slight negative is they are so well wrapped that I have trouble getting the end logs out.....but that could just be me!
I usually buy 6 cube of fire wood which takes up a lot of space, a pallet of briquettes only uses a fraction of that space. I tried a couple on the fire and a burn time of 3 hours was achieved.
