Curran Wood Pellets
Curran Pellets are made from timber harvested from our sister company, Seaway Timber Harvesting. Our logging crews put the trees through a delimber to remove branches and flail chipper to remove bark, leaving clean green stems to be chipped for wood pellet prodution. The clean green chips are then ground to 5/8″ minus put through a dryer and ground again into 3/8″ minus sawdust . The sawdust is then extruded into pellets with pure compression and no additives. Wood pellets then are passed through two shaker screens to remove sawdust and loose fines.

- Anthracite Coal
- Quality: Even heat flow and high level of BTUs make anthracite the warmest, most steady, comfortable heat source available.
- Convenient: Anthracite is very different from coal-burning of the past. When anthracite is used as the primary source of heat in a home or business, its modernized furnaces with coal-feeding and ash removal systems require little effort by the consumer.
- Environmentally Sound: Anthracite’s low sulfur and high carbon content makes it an extremely clean-burning fuel.
- Economical: Heat is measured in BTUs or British Thermal Units. Using this measurement as a comparison, the cost of anthracite can be significantly lower than gas, oil, electricity, cord wood, wood pellets, or propane.
- Reading Anthracite Coal: available in rice, pea, and nut.
- By bag, truck, or freight, Reading Anthracite meets the demands for residential, commercial businesses, and institutional uses.
- Reading Anthracite also provides large scale heat needs to universities, medical facilities, and government agencies.
- Anthracite coal has been used for home heating for over 150 years and generates almost twice the heat per pound as wood pellets, corn, and other grains.
