It is a good choice to process hops into hop pellets by hops pelletizing equipment. It is convenient for storage and transportation, is not easy to go bad, and will not affect the freshness of hops.

In addition, hop pelletizer machine can also be used for various biomass pelletizing. It is understood that biomass pellet processing plants around the world are all over the country, from family-style small workshops to batch mass mold production to fully automatic biomass pellet production lines, biomass pellet plants at all levels have, and the situation of biomass pellet plants is also better year by year.

Because the renewable green energy investment of the hop pellet machine has great potential for biomass pellets.

We have provided thousands of customers from 127 countries with complete pelletizing projects. If you have any pelletizing needs, just send an inquiry to us.


Introduction of hops

  • Hops are known as the “soul of beer”. It is a genus of humulus in the cannabis family.
  • Because it can give beer a special bitterness and unique style, and it is not easily spoiled, it is often used in beer brewing.
  • Hops are made up of a variety of organic compounds that were previously independent of each other and coordinated with each other, which is why hops can produce the flavor characteristics that give beer its unique style.
  • When brewing beer, the addition of hops can balance the sweetness of the wort and stimulate the appetite.
  • Hops exist in many forms, such as T45 pellets, T90 pellets and so on. At present, T90 hop pellets are the main existing form.

Benefits of hops pellets

What are the benefits of hop pellets? Let’s take a look at it!

  • The hop pellets are dissolved and broken when they are put into the wheat wort, and the contact area with the wort is greatly increased.
  • The hop pellets are crushed and then pressed and extruded, so the serpentine glands of the hop pellets are already broken, and the isomerization process of the alpha acid will be much easier, and the bitterness will be increased significantly.
  • The utilization rate of hop pellets is better than that of dry hops, generally around 15%.
  • Easy to store and transport in a compact size
  • Hops pellets effectively reduce the contact area with air, inhibit oxidation reactions, and also greatly save storage space as well as transportation costs.

How to make hop pellets?

how to pelletize hops? Let’s take a look at the production process of hop pellets.

produstion process of hop pellets

01 Crushing process: hop crushing machine

First of all, according to the thickness and hardness of the raw material, the raw material is ground into powder by crusher or hammer mill and put into the buffer bin.

02 drying process: drying machine

After crushing, The moisture of raw material required for pelletizing hops pellets is below 20%. So this step varies depending on the situation, if the moisture of the material is too high, it needs to be dried.

03 Pelletizing process: hop pelletizer

The third step, is pelletizing. After drying and crushing the hops, through the hop pellet mill, for pressing molding.

04 Cooling process: feed cooling machine

The pressing process is a physical extrusion, and friction process, so it will produce high temperature. Hop pellets need to be cooled down after they are made

05 Packaging process: feed pellet packing machine

After the production of these finished pellets, the packaging can be neatly stored, whether it is for transportation, storage, or use, are very clean and convenient, can be widely used in industrial production, and even can be used for biomass power generation, whether in factories or families are very suitable, the market is very broad.

FAQ of hops pelletizer machine

what need to prepare to start a biomass pellet business?

The following conditions are required to invest in the production of biomass pellets:

market prospects

first of all, biomass particles in what circumstances will someone buy, banned coal! Yes, the market price of biomass pellets is higher than that of coal, and the calorific value is not as high as that of coal, can’t help but buy coal? Therefore, it involves environmental protection issues, only in areas where coal is banned, there will be a large number of biomass boilers that need biomass fuel as fuel.


even if the region has banned coal, but the market share of coal-fired boilers to transform biomass boilers is low, it will not be too large. Without sales, investment is equal to failure.

reliable quality equipment

In the case of meeting the first two conditions, the stability of the equipment is the key factor related to your money, hop pellet machine is a non-standard product, there is no corresponding, so the choice of equipment manufacturers must look at the market, the effect of its users is good.

Other points need to be considered

After the inspection of the above points need to be further considered: raw material inspection, plant inspection, power inspection, investment budget, sales market.

  • Inspection of raw materials. There are many raw materials that can be used for biomass particles, such as corn stalks, wood chips, bamboo chips, rice husks, furniture factory scraps, and building templates. The profitability of straw raw materials is more difficult, half of the recommended collection of wood chips raw materials. The key to examining raw materials is to examine these points: raw material type, raw material size, raw material moisture, and how much raw material there is.
  • Workshop. Make a preliminary survey to see how big the plant can be for production.
  • Electricity. Check the power capacity of the transformer.

When the above points are ready, you can sign a contract with the manufacturer to prepare for the introduction of equipment, and collect raw materials in advance, so that the equipment can be directly produced after installation and debugging.
