Wood Pellets Production

Wood Pellet Presses

With the fast development of feeding animals industry and biomass energy saving project, the small scale wood pellet presses or pellet mills become very popular. For the reason it they can not only process the feedstuff for animals, such as feed for fish, chicken, pig etc, but  can also  change  waste biomass materials into useful wood pellets.  At the beginning, the small scale wood pellet presses mainly used to process the pellet as feedstuff, however, as to make it to process the waste biomass material such as sawdust, straw etc. people change the press through improving the quality of its main parts in recent years. Now, the improved pelletizing machine can successfully process wood pellets, even making wood pellets with high quality. The final wood pellet can be burned as green fuel in pellet stoves or boilers.


Benefits of Wood Pellets

One way to improve the energy density of wood fuel is to convert it into wood pellets.  Ideally this is undertaken at the material processing facility.

Wood pellets have several distinct advantages when compared to wood chips:

Greater energy density

Relatively clean

Better flow

Low moisture and ash content


Less volume to transport and store

Smaller and cheaper boiler systems


Raw Material to Make Pellet:

Any type of Agro-Forestry waste could be used to make pellets by wood pellet presses. But the Moisture Content Should be Less than 12%, grain size is below 5×5mm.
