Video of miscanthus pellet mill
The video shows a new biomass pellet mill, the miscanthus pellet machine, developed and manufactured by RICHI Machinery. As there are various types of biomass raw materials, we have designed a pelletizer for each type of raw materials, and we can also customize the pelletizer according to your needs.
Miscanthus pelletizer mainly consists of feeding system, pelletizing system, motor and so on. The main working principle is to put the crushed miscanthus into the pelletizer feeder, the materials enter into the pelletizing chamber through the feeder, and is pressed and shaped under the continuous extrusion of the ring die and the pressure rollers, the miscanthus pellets are finally extruded out from the die holes, and the pellets will be cut into the required length by the cutter device.
Our miscanthus pellet mills are designed according to the characteristics of miscanthus, and are equipped with anti-caking bins and force feeders. These are because miscanthus is lightweight and poorly mobile, the anti-caking silo prevents the material from arching and clogging the machine, while the force feeder allows the material to be fed smoothly into the pelletizer. In addition, the machine is designed with stainless steel and adopts imported high quality Siemens motor and SKF bearings, which ensures smooth operation, long service life and high working efficiency.
Before introducing how to choose a suitable pelletizer, let’s understand the characteristics of miscanthus and miscanthus pellets as well as how to make miscanthus pellets, we believe it can be helpful for your miscanthus pellet production plan and choosing a suitable pelletizer.
How to make miscanthus pellets using miscanthus pellet mill?
The production of miscanthus pellets is similar to the production of alfalfa grass pellets, you can refer to the alfalfa pellet production line. The production process for making miscanthus pellets is generally as follows: harvesting miscanthus, crushing miscanthus, drying miscanthus, pelletizing, cooling, and packing.

making pellets with miscanthus pellet mill
In the production process of miscanthus pellets, the miscanthus pelletizer is a core equipment. It directly determines the quality and production of miscanthus pellets. So what is a miscanthus pellet maker?
A miscanthus pellet machine is a machine that can press the crushed and dried miscanthus pellets into a firm pellet product. It is mainly composed of frequency conversion feeder, stainless steel tempering, pelletizing chamber, Siemens motor and so on.
When the pelletizer works, the material enters into the pelletizing chamber through the feeder, and the ring die rotates clockwise, accompanied by the miscanthus raw material entering into the working area, and the pressure roller will be subjected to friction, which will produce extrusion with the ring die. Eventually the material becomes cylindrical miscanthus granules under the extrusion of the ring die and pressure roller and is cut off to form the desired product.
Below are the specific models of our miscanthus pelletizers and parameter table.

How to choose the right miscanthus pellet mill
Miscanthus pellet mill is crucial in the production process of miscanthus pellets, and choosing a suitable miscanthus pellet mill can also be said to be the first step in successfully making miscanthus pellets. Here is a summary of how to buy a miscanthus pellet making machine.
Check the appearance of the miscanthus pelletizer
To judge the goodness of a machine, the most direct way is to observe the appearance of the machine first. In addition to personal customization with special needs, a good quality miscanthus pelletizing machine should be uniformly painted, no paint leakage, paint loss phenomenon exists. And the contact part with the raw material is best to choose stainless steel. You can judge whether the surface of the parts is smooth, whether the polishing finish is uniform, etc. to judge.
Check the mold and pressure roller process
Check the mold and pressure roller process. Mold and pressure roller is the main working parts used to press the pellets, whether the pellet machine can produce satisfactory pellets not only by the template parameters, the mold process also greatly determines the quality of the pellets. Before choosing to buy a pellet making machine, it is recommended that you ask what material the mold is made of and whether the size of the mold meets the standard. When accepting the machine, you should also check whether the surface of the mold is smooth and clean.
Check the internal details of the machine
In addition to the ring mold, the main body of the machine and other parts are recommended that you also check clearly. Ensure the reliability of the machine. You can check the overall assembly fastening of the machine from a big angle according to the instruction manual of the merchant. Then you can judge the quality of the machine from the details such as the cover of the press chamber door. For example, check whether the pressing chamber door opens and closes smoothly and whether the seal is tight.
Test the machine
It is best to bring your raw materials to try it yourself. You can also let the pelletizer manufacturer for you to shoot raw material test video, to avoid the purchase of raw materials found after the situation can not be processed. This is of course what we do not want to see. The process of testing the machine should especially pay attention to the applicability of the template to the raw material.
Check the quality of the miscanthus pellets
Making good quality miscanthus pellets is the common goal we all pursue when buying a machine. Therefore, whether the machine can produce high quality pellets is the key. High quality miscanthus pellets produced by the machine should be uniform in size, and the pelletizing rate is higher than 95%. And the surface of miscanthus pellets should be smooth without cracks, or the cracks are very small. Besides, miscanthus pellets as biomass pellets should have certain hardness, you can pinch the cooled pellets to judge whether it is easy to crush.
Introduction of miscanthus
Miscanthus, commonly known as elephant grass, is a high-energy crop used primarily in the thermal and electrical energy markets. Below is a description of miscanthus in these terms:
Characteristics of miscanthus:
miscanthus is a highly productive rhizomatous perennial herb that, once planted, produces a crop every year without the need to replant again. It is vigorous and very hardy. Miscanthus is able to grow in very poor and cold weather conditions and is fast growing, growing to 4m in about 3 months. It is low in minerals, high in biomass production, and is able to absorb carbon dioxide quickly, making it a high quality biomass fuel.
Miscanthus is highly productive and although there are no exact figures on the yields that can be achieved, some industry professionals estimate that miscanthus yields can reach an average of 12-15 oven-dry tons (odt) per hectare.
Uses of miscanthus:
- The largest use of miscanthus is as a biomass fuel, either burned directly or mixed with other biomass to make a biomass pellet product. Miscanthus can be burned to provide electricity and heat for factories as well as for home heating.
- It can also be used as animal bedding, such as elephant grass horse bedding, miscanthus cat litter, and more!
- Miscanthus can also be used as a raw material for the production of paper.
- Miscanthus has many other uses, such as in the production of medium density fiberboard and in the construction of flower pots for gardening.
Why make mincanthus into pellets?
Miscanthus pellets are cylindrical pellets with a diameter of 6-12mm, which mainly processed and pressed by the miscanthus pellet mill. Compared with miscanthus, it has higher density, smaller volume, lower water content and higher combustion efficiency. The biggest use of miscanthus pellets is to be used as biomass pellet fuel instead of traditional coal. It helps to promote the reduction of environmental pollution. In addition to this, miscanthus pellets are excellent animal bedding, especially for horses. Therefore more and more people choose to process miscanthus into miscanthus pellets to further increase the value of miscanthus. Here are some of the advantages of miscanthus pellets, and I believe that once you understand the advantages of miscanthus pellets, you will understand why make miscanthus pellets.
- The first advantage of miscanthus pellets is their convenience. Bagged miscanthus pellets are easy to stack and store, saving floor space.-Miscanthus pellets have low moisture content, high combustion efficiency and are more suitable for combustion.
- High density, small volume, small occupation space, and strong mobility, very convenient transportation and storage
- Low ash content of miscanthus pellet combustion, which can reduce the risk of slagging during pellet combustion.
- Low smoke and ash produced during combustion, which does not pollute the environment and contributes to environmental protection.
With the continuous development and progress of modern technology, the technology of pelletizing machine is also maturing, and making miscanthus pellets has become more and more simple. Let’s learn how to make miscanthus pellets!
