various kinds of biomass pellets

After knowing so much of the features and advantages, many people may have this doubt: What is the process of the biomass pellet production line? Then I will introduce you to the detailed process of the biomass pellet production line for your reference, if you have any requirements, please contact us, our technical team will customize professional projects for you.

Biomass pellet manufacturing process

The biomass pellet manufacturing process can be divided into two types in terms of technological procedure.

Technological procedure: Preparing raw materials→ Crushing process→ drying process→ transporting raw materials→ pelletizing process→ transporting biomass pellets→ cooling process→ packing process

Equipment needed process: Hammer mill crusher→conveyor machine dryer machine→ conveyor machine→ MZLH320 biomass pellet machine → conveyor machine → cooler machine → packing machine

biomass pellet production line flow chart

01 Crushing section:

  First of all, feed the biomass materials into the screw conveyor to do the crushing section. The materials are crushed by the hammer mill.

02 Drying section:

After the crushing section, all the raw materials are crushed to a suitable fineness for pelletizing. The crushed materials enter the storage bin for drying and then enter the rotary drum drying machine to do the drying section. Then they will be delivered to the next section through a conveyor machine.

03 Pelletizing section:

   After drying, the materials are conveyed to the pelletizing section. They are fed into the biomass pellets making machine through an anti-caking feeder. Under the pressure of the ring die and rollers, the biomass pellets are formed.

04 Cooling section:

This section can cool the feed pellets to room temperature, which can avoid the feed pellets from breaking and make them easy to pack.

05 Packaging section: feed pellet packing machine

After being cooled, the feed pellets can easily be weighed and packed by the automatic packaging machine.

How much does it cost to build a biomass pellet plant?

The costs of a complete biomass pellet plant involved many aspects. Such as the production scale, labor cost, plant construction, equipment configuration, raw materials, and transportation cost. The production scale is an important factor in the plant cost. The bigger the production scale of the plant, the higher the plant cost.
Generally speaking, the cost of a 3-4T/H line is between $20000-$100000. The price of labor cost is also subject to change depending on the production capacity, the bigger the production scale, the more required workers, and the higher the labor cost.
RICHI Machinery can provide you with customized production lines according to your requirements. And the price of our pellet processing equipment is the factory price can reduce your cost in building a biomass pellet plan.
