Ligno-Tester Information

The Ligno-Tester has been updated and re-introduced into the Holmen range of Pellet Durability Testers. 

The Ligno-Tester has been updated and re-introduced into the Holmen range of Pellet Durability Testers. 

The Ligno-Tester provides the user with a stable test environment to calculate the Mechanical Durability (DU) value of a pellet.  Simulating a transportation environment the Ligno-Tester will provide reproductable tests time and time again.  The machine is compliant with the European Pellet Council EN plus certification which is based on EN14961-2 for wood pellets.

Initially a 30 second Fines Separation Cycle is run acting as a sieving process. A full Mechanical Durability (DU) process takes just a further 60 seconds to complete.  This simple test enables producers to confirm and record their Pellet Mechanical Durability and Fines Measurements.

Strengthen your quality control with Ligno-Tester. To ensure wood pellets conform to EU Pellet Council standards, apply 10 to 20 kg of LignoBond DD/Mt. prior to pelleting.
