ABOUT LIBERTY BRICKS
HOW LONG DO LIBERTY BRICKS BURN?
As with any wood, burn time depends on how much air the fire is given. In an open fireplace, Liberty Bricks will burn for about 90 minutes. In a well-stocked, damped-down wood stove (but not stuffed to capacity!) they will burn all night. You’ll want to experiment.
HOW MUCH HEAT IS GENERATED BY LIBERTY BRICKS?
Like all wood, they give off about 8600 BTU’s per pound. Since Liberty Bricks are generally dryer than split wood, less heat is lost to the vaporization of moisture. One ton of Liberty Bricks contains about 17 million BTU’s. With heating oil, you’ll need about 120 gallons to get the same amount of heat; with propane, about 185 gallons; with natural gas, about 165 CCF; or about 4980 KWh of electricity. Of course, appliance efficiency will affect the amount of heat you get out of any fuel.
HOW ARE LIBERTY BRICKS MADE?
Liberty Bricks are held together by the force applied to them during the manufacturing process. Wood fiber is fed into a mold, where a large ram puts thousands of pounds of pressure on the fiber and compresses it into a Liberty Brick. The bricks are held together by the rejoined fibers in the wood and natural resins. No glues or binders are added.
HOW MUCH WOOD IS EQUIVALENT A TON OF LIBERTY BRICKS?
Although split wood is often bought by the cord, there’s no good way to know exactly how much wood you’re getting since a cord is defined by the 8’ X 4’ X 4’ dimensions of the stack but not by how densely it’s packed. One “rule” to describe the density of a cord of wood is that a mouse can get into the stack, but not the cat that’s chasing it. The heat value of wood is determined by the weight and dryness, and since Liberty Bricks are sold by weight, you can be sure that you’re getting one ton (2000 lbs.) of Liberty Bricks on each pallet. Liberty Bricks are conveniently packaged in shrink wrapped bundles of ten bricks and each pallet is wrapped and covered. Liberty Bricks take up half the storage space of cordwood, are clean, have no bugs, and may be stored indoors or outdoors.
GREENER IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE!
We believe we have the most cost-effective solution for businesses wishing to recycle their wood waste, and certainly a much greener alternative. Most of our fiber comes from pallet re-manufacturers. These pallets were not in good enough condition to be used again, so they were chipped up and then delivered to our warehouse where they are turned into Liberty Bricks.
The rest of our fiber comes from wood working facilities that make cabinets, doors, windows, and other wood products. Our wood supply is a premium blend of hardwood and softwood. We screen all our suppliers to ensure that nothing. but clean wood gets made into Liberty Bricks.
MUCH BETTER THAN PELLETS.
