Corinth Wood Pellets LLC manufactures premium hardwood pellet fuel from 100% natural wood fiber harvested in Maine. We began manufacturing in 2007, and are recognized as the premier wood pellet manufacturer in the state.

  • Admin Review: Nov: 2017 Corinth puts out some pretty good pellets from up north in Maine. Great nice heat but I think if they were to get a their pellets to have less ash then they will be able to compete more with Maine Woods.

    Something happened this year to Corinth pellets. I have used them for 3 years now and they have always been short, blond, burned well, and no clinkers. Like the pellets in these pictures. This year they are much longer and sort of a green/dark brown color. They throw off decent heat, and seem to burn a little longer, but they have jammed up the feed several times, and if I turn my heat to anything higher than low, they fill the burn box into a charcoal brickette like clinker, and that shuts off my stove because the pellets just bounce right off. I guess I have to find a new pellet.

    What JUNK I thought these pellets improved with the new so-called Ultra premium name these pellets are awful burned one bag and found a clinker that look like a meteorite from outer space in the burn pot spoke with a woman at Corner wood pallets that answered the phone ask her if these pallets had changed it all they told me that they were just relabeled Ultra Premium looks like rebagg Pennington cheap Walmart pellets awful

    So far this season, Corinth is tied with LaCrete and ahead of Cubex in leaving lower residue in the bag. I hope this means lower ash content.

    I have a Harman XXV. During previous seasons, I set the feed rate to #4. This season its set between 2 and 3, although it seems to be burning the pellets at the same rate, even tho its been a warmer fall.

    I've had a Harman Accentra pellet stove for 3 years and burned, Cubex, Crabbe, LaCrete, La Granules du Bois, Corinth and Maine Woods Pellets. Obviously there are many brands that I haven't tried. Corinth pellets have become my favorite, followed by Cubex and Maine Woods. Corinth ranks at the top because they produce a more grannular ash and thus less soot that clings to the heat exchanger baffles. Buildup on the flues are where you lose the most heating efficiency. I really don't care how much falls in the ash pan or how often I have to empty it, but for maximum heat and efficiency the cleaner the heat exchanger baffles are, the better. Some brands also have more sawdust that clings to the hopper retarding the fall of pellets creating for more stove attention to push pellets down the hopper. In the end, actual BTU's of heat were about the same for all pellets because a ton of dry wood is a ton of dry wood whether softwood, hardwood or mixed. The significant factors seem to be how your stove combustion air flow contributes to best burn efficiency and the ability of the heat exchanger baffles to stay clean.

    I am more than half way through my second year with an Ashley pellet stove. Last year pellets in RI/MA sold out so I decided to buy 3 tons in the fall. Prtobably a bad idea.

    I bought three tons of the Corinth softwood pellets and ultimately am not very satisfied.

    My initial impressions. The bags have small perforations along the back side that can allow moisture to enter. I store in my garage so 99% of my pellets are dry however they could be higher in moisture content???

    The pellets are all crushed. I am into my third ton and honestly the average length of the pellets are between 1/8-3/8 in length. It seems to clog up my pot and prevent proper airflow.

    If I try to burn at any rate above the lowest feed setting the pot overflows!!!! Im using more oil with my traditional furnace because of this. I simple cant turn up the stove heat.

    The plus side. if they work in your model stove, they are hot as hell!!!! At the lowest setting the stove heats my hoouse alone until the outside temperature goes below 30 F.



    There is a tremendous amount of dust in the bags when

    I have a Napoleon Pellet Stove, which I admit to being somewhat dissatisfied with. I usually use a blend of hardwood/soft wood, but because they were all out, I tried the Corinth Premium Softwood. They have surprised me with how much heat is thrown, and there is much less ash. I'm probably going to get a couple of ton. Worth the extra bit of money. I can put the stove on a lower setting...
