If you wish to start manufacturing your own pellets, you need to know the right kind of equipment to buy for your venture. The first machine that you will need is the hammer mill. This is not a complicated machine to buy, since they all operate the same. You will only need to choose between the various sizes, capacities, power consumption, and brands.
The other important machine that you will need is the pellet-making machine. This is a bit complicated since there are 2 types of these pellet presses that you have to choose from. These 2 types are the Flat Die Pellet mill and the Ring Die Pellet mill. Both machines do the same function i.e. make pellets, but each is designed to operate in its own special way.
The difference between these 2 machine lies in the die used i.e. a plate with holes where the mill’s roller presses the raw materials to form the pellets. Therefore, you will need to know which pellet mill to buy, depending on the purpose that you intend to use it for. The major distinction between the 2 machines is that the Ring Die Pellet is more efficient in terms of power consumption and has a high output. Flat Die Pellet machine is more versatile since it has an adjustable pressure load.
Introduction a benefit machine – wood pellet machine. Wood Pellets are a type of biomass fuel, generally made from waste wood. This takes the form of either compacted sawdust produced as a byproduct of saw-milling or grinding wood chips produced from logging operations. The pellets are extremely dense and can be produced with a low moisture content (lower than 10%) that allows them to burn at a very high combustion efficiency. Now, millions of households around the world either use wood pellet fuel as their primary fuel source, or at the very least as a supplementary heating source.
What about Wood Pellets energy output and efficiency? High-efficiency wood pellet stoves and boilers have been developed in recent years, offering combustion efficiencies of over 90%. Wood pellet boilers – having limited control over the rate and presence of combustion compared to liquid or gaseous-fired systems – are particularly suited for hydronic systems due to the hydronic system’s greater ability to store heat.
In 2005, the demand for pellet heating has increased in European and North America, and a sizable industry is emerging and pellet availability and cost may be an issue. However the pellet production is increasing but several new pellet mills online in 2008-2009.
In the meantime, thousands of people are moving towoards a more sustainable and stable fuel choice – Wood Pellets.
