Know the Best Type of Crushing System to Handle
Wood Hammer crusher mill, Multi-functional Hammer mill, and wood chipper shredder machine are the three most essential machines when it comes to pellet production. The mechanism used by these three milling machines favors the perfect manufacture of biomass pellets and wood pellets making them a success.
Know How Best to Dry Your Pellets
Pellets need to be dry to function efficiently. Thus to know how best to dry your pellets of choice, understand the different ways you can achieve this.
- Dryer systems: This is best ideal if you are working with specific varieties of wood. Various kinds of wood require different degrees of heat to dry entirely.
- Rotary drying: If the raw material you are working with has got a moisture level of approximately 40%, this is the best choice to use.
- Sun-drying: For a more cost-efficient process, sun drying will aid in drying raw materials with moisture levels accumulating to about 15%.
Determine the Production Capacity
Before contacting different suppliers in the market, decide on the number of pellets you intend to produce on a daily, monthly or yearly period. This will help you minimize the risk and budget plan.
Carefully Select the Best Ring Die for Production
There are different pellet sizes involved in this process. For uniformity and faster production, select different gauges of ring sizes so that you can process many pellets diameters. (Related Product: Ring Die Pellet Machine for Sale)
Details of the Ring Die
Why is It Important to Know the Diameter Ring?
Different raw materials are compressed under different ring diameters to function excellently. I.e., wood pellets with a diameter of between 6mm -8mm burn faster as compared to biomass pellets with over 15mm in diameter.
Decide on the Weighing and Packaging Process
A perfect packaging machine will minimize the amount of time required to pack your pellets. Hopper weighing packing machine combines speed, accuracy, and multi-functionalities to give you the best service in this field.
