Generally speaking, pellet plant process can be divided into crushing system, drying system, pelletizing system, cooling and sifting system, packaging system and electrical cabinet system. The details of each process are listed as follows:

Crushing System

Equipment needed: wood chipper, hammer mill.

Crush your raw materials into appropriate small pieces with wood chipper and hammer mill. Crushing is quite necessary especially when the raw material is log. Generally, the final crushed size should be 3-6mm which is required by most pellet making machines.

Drying System

Equipment needed: dryer machine (Drum drier is the best choice)

Diameter(mm) Length(m) Power(kw) Speed of rotation (r/min)
HZG6 600 4,5,6,7,8 3-5.5 3-20 adjustment
HZG8 800 4,5,6,7,8,9,10 5.5-7.5
HZG10 1000 6,7,8,9,
HZG12 1200 6,8,10,12,
HZG15 1500 8,10,12,14,
HZG18 1800 8,10,12,14,
HZG22 2200 10,12,14,16,
HZG24 2400 12,14,16,18,

In this process, the crushed materials will be dried to appropriate moisture content. To make premium wood fuel pellets, drying is one of the most important parts you should pay attention to. 12-16% is suitable in most wood pellet production process. High moisture could result in easy split pellets and low moisture could cause pelletizing difficulty problem. If you plan to build a large integrated wood pellet line, drum dryer is the best choice. Due to its big drum and structure, the price might be relatively higher than normal dryer. If your budget is limited, air flow dryer is also a good choice.

Pelleting System

Equipment needed: Wood Pellet Machine (choose ring die type pellet making machine)

ring die pellet machinery Model Capacity
Main motor power Feeding motor powe Conditioner motor power Diameter of final wood pellet
BPM420 1.0-1.5 90kw 1.5kw 3kw 6, 8, 10, 12
BPM508 1.5-2.0 110kw 1.5kw 3.7kw 6, 8, 10, 12

Pelletizing is the key process of pellet production plant. The ring die of GEMCO pellet mill machine is designed with different compression ratio. Ring die with multiple compression ratios make our pellet mill capable of processing various kinds of biomass materials.

Cooling and Sifting System

Cooling system helps to cool down the final pellets. Sifting system is for removing the powder in the pellets.

Packing is the last one process of pellet production. You can choose to pack the pellets with bulk bag or small bag. Bulk bag is 1Ton/Bag. Small bag is about 15-30kg/Bag.
