How to start complete wood pellet plant/Biomass Pellet Plant?
Wood pellets are known as the best biomass fuel pellets of high heat value. we can not only make small wood pellets with different diameter, but also can extrude wood briquettes and block shape wood brick. Wood logs, wood chips, sawdust and other wood residues including pine wood are also suitable materials for making briquettes or pellets with this extruding plant.
The wood pellet machine designed by our factory is a newly-developed renewable energy equipment which can transform any Agro-wastes into bio-fuel pellets with high calorific value It can used almost all kinds of corn straw, straw, rice, wheat straw, wheat shell, bean straw, cotton stalk, medical dregs, tree branches, leaves and wood chips, sawdust, hay etc.
Can a wood pellet mill pelletize agricultural by-products?
Agro wastes: rice husks, corn cobs, maize stalks, peanut shells, sunflower seed shells, coconut shuck, coffee grounds, straw stalks, Tobacco waste Mustard Stalk, Jute waste, Bamboo Dust, Tea waste, Wheat Straw, Palm husk, Soybeans husk, Coir Pitch Barks/Straws,;
Wood wastes: Raw material resources: timber industry, sawmills, paper industry, furniture industry, building industry and agricultural by-products
The varieties of trees: such as pinewood, birch, spruce, beech, poplar, eucalyptus, maple, tropical trees, subtropical trees and tree species from frigid zone and shrubs.
Size of raw material: wood logs, timber, lumber, tree branches and twigs, tree trunks, wood chips, sawdust, saw shavings, wood powder and shrubs.
The Key Wood Pellet Line Equipment
Wood Pellet Machine (ring die type suggested),it can be used to make nearly 1000 tons of wood pellets
Flow chart of complete wood pellet plant:
Mostly an integral wood pellet plant is composed of wood chipper/skiving machine, hammer mill, conveyor, dryer, cooler, wood pellet machine and package machine. In fact, except the main pelletizing machine, not all other auxiliary equipment is essential for a pellet plant. You should drop one or two equipment depending on your production scale and make your own customized pellet plan. For small pellet production plan, you can drop some kind of process equipment to save money.
Factors You Should Know before Building a Wood Pellet Plant
- Firstly, no matter what materials you choose, control the moisture content 8-12%. This is very important for ensuring the smooth of pelleting process and improving the productivity. You’d better not to save cost in this process. Higher moisture content will cause block problem and the iron parts of the machine will easily rust. Lower moisture content will make it hard to be extruded or pelletized. Both higher and lower water content can result in reduction of pellet productivity. If your budget is really limited, you can drop the dryer machine and choose to dry the raw materials in the open air by sun. But his is only suggested for small capacity.
- Secondly, buy high quality and reliable wood pellet mill. We all know that wood pellet mill is the key parts of any pellet plant. It is essential in all situations. But high quality ones doesn’t mean expensive ones. We can supply the most cost-effective wood pellet equipment and the price of our equipment is affordable for most customers. For small scale pellets making such as making pellets at home or on farm, you can choose mini or small pellet mill to decrease your budget.
