Video of leaf pellet mill

This video shows you how to make leaf pellets from leaves with a leaf pellet mill. Put the crushed leaves into the inside of the pelletizer and the pelletizer runs at high speed to produce high quality leaf pellets.

The leaf pellet maker converts seemingly useless leaves into biomass fuel pellets. These biomass pellets have a high density and combustion value as a fuel, which makes good use of the earth’s resources and at the same time helps to protect the earth’s environment.

Of course, the leaf pellet machine can be used to produce not only leaf pellets but also all kinds of biomass pellets, such as wood pellets, straw pellets, rice husk pellets, grass pellets, and so on.

RICHI Machinery is an expert in feed, wood, biomass, and organic fertilizer pelletizing solutions, we design every pellet production line according to customers’ needs. 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.

Leaf Pellet Mill

Leaf pellet machine is one kind of biomass pellet machine, which can process all kinds of biomass raw materials. Such as straw, rice straw, trees, rice husk and so on. Leaf pellet mill can be divided into ring die pellet mill and flat die pellet mill.

Generally speaking, flat die pellet mill has low output and is more suitable for small farmers and individual production, while ring die pellet mill has large pressing force, high output and low energy consumption, which is more suitable for large-scale production of leaf pellets.

RICHI MZLH leaf pellet mill adopts advanced pelletizing process and stainless steel ring die design. There are many models to choose from, and in addition to the models listed below, we can also customize your pellet mill according to your needs.

What is the process of making pellets from leaves?

The process of making pellets from leaves mainly includes: crushing, drying, pelletizing, cooling, and packing.

process of making pellets from leaves

01 Crushing process: leaf crushing machine

First of all, the collected leaves are generally large and not suitable for immediate pelletizing. Because the leaf pellet mill has strict requirements on the size of the raw material, it is generally necessary to crush the raw material to 2-3mm of the powder before it can enter the pelletizing chamber for pelletizing.

02 Drying process: leaf dryer

Fresh leaves are moist and have a high water content. Older leaves are dry and have a low water content. However, the water content is too high or too low to be suitable for granulation, so the leaves need to be dried or moistened with water. This also depends on the specific conditions of your raw materials.

03 Pelletizing process: leaf pellet mill

The leaf fragments of appropriate size and moisture content are put into the feeder, and the material passes through the feeder to the conditioner for heating and conditioning. Because the leaves are relatively light and cannot naturally enter the pelletizing chamber, we have a forced feeder on the outside of the pelletizing chamber, which helps the leaves to enter the inside of the pelletizing chamber smoothly and complete the pelleting section. The process of producing pellets in the granulation chamber is mainly that the material is gradually extruded from the die hole under the extrusion of the ring die and the press roll, and then the cutting device is used to reach the ideal length.

04 Cooling process: Leaf pellet cooling machine

After the completion of the pelletizing process, the packaging bag can not be immediately carried out. Because leaf particles undergo high temperature and pressure in the production process, the temperature of leaf pellets is relatively high, and the surface of leaf pellet is easy to be damaged at this time, and direct storage will lead to deterioration. So you need to use a cooling machine to cool the leaf pellets to about room temperature before packaging.

05 Packaging process: leaf pellet packing machine

After cooling, the leaf pellets have a smooth surface and a compact interior, which can be packaged and stored directly. How you package depends on your output, and your production needs. Most customers choose automatic packing machines for large packaging bags, saving time and effort and high efficiency.

FAQ about the Leaf pellet mill

Three problems that need to be paid attention to when the leaf pellet machine produces fuel

Leaf pellet machine uses leaves, sawdust, straw and other new biomass energy sources to produce fuel pellets that can replace coal, making a significant contribution to the cause of environmental protection and energy. Leaf pellet machine needs to pay attention to the following three problems when producing fuel:

Storage of raw materials

To pay attention to the storage of raw materials, it is best to stack upright, the middle should have a certain stacking distance, to facilitate the evaporation of water within the leaves, need to be often exposed to the sun, to prevent the occurrence of mold.

Quality of leaves

Freshly harvested leaves have more moisture content, stacked up easy to mold, so they should be separated to dry, keep ventilated and dry, and then stored. Leaf pellet machine also has requirements for the moisture content of the leaves, to do a good job of moisture control, moisture content of about 17% when the success rate is higher.

Processing and pressing

Before feeding the machine should be test run to see whether the parts parts are normal, and deal with irregularities in a timely manner, and the feeding should be uniform, to ensure that the straw pellet machine is working. Because the fresh output of leaf pellets is relatively hot, so it should be dried before storage and packaging factory.

Three Problems That Need To Be Paid Attention To When The Leaf Pellet Machine Produces Fuel

Leaf pellet mill solves the problem of leaf surplus, so that it turns waste into treasure, its own superior technical performance, by the majority of users, deal with the above three problems, make production easier.

how does leaf pellet mill work?

Leaf pellet mill mainly consists of stainless steel feeder equipped with anti-caking arch bin, tempering device, pelletizing chamber, Siemens motor, base and so on.

Its working principle is that the material is put into the feeder by manual feeding or conveying equipment, and the powdered leaves are put into the feeder.

The feeder adopts the frequency conversion speed regulator feeder, which can control and adjust the feeding amount and feeding speed according to your personal demand. Then the material enters into the pelletizing chamber through the feeder for pelletizing. Inside the pelletizing chamber, the main working parts are stainless steel ring die and pressure roller.

The material is mainly converted into leaf pellets by the continuous extrusion of the ring die and pressure rollers, and extruded out from the die holes. The pelletizing chamber is equipped with a cutter to cut the leaf pellets to the desired length.

how much does a leaf pellet mill cost?

Like most machines, the price of leaf pellet mill is mainly determined by the output of the machine. The larger the output the higher the configuration and of course the more expensive the machine. The price of a leaf pellet maker usually ranges from $10,000-$50,000. The specific price depends on the type of machine you want to choose to decide, if you want to get a detailed quote, you can leave your contact information, we will contact you within one business day to give you a quote.

making leaf pellets

Generally speaking, it is recommended that customers choose a pellet machine model with a production capacity larger than their production needs, because in order to meet their production needs and at the same time avoid the wear and tear of the machine due to various reasons or raw materials resulting in inefficient discharge resulting in a reduction in production.
