Standard 1-2 t/h biomass pellet manufacturing plant design

  1. Pre-treatment section: according to different raw materials, flexibly configure processes such as wood splitting, slicing, hay cutting, crushing, and cleaning, and select corresponding equipment; the larger the size of the raw material and the greater the humidity, the more complicated the pre-treatment process of raw materials, more devices need to be configured.

    (If the raw material is only powder, then it is only necessary to pass the biomass powder raw material through the sieving machine to remove impurities such as sand, stone, iron and the like; the sieved wood powder enters the hydraulic granulation silo through the conveyor belt for caching and homogenization, automatic connection, reducing dust concentration, safe and clean, saving labor.)
  2. Drying: The crushed materials are dried by a biomass dryer;
  3. Pelletizing: The wood powder is fed through the frequency conversion of the screw conveyor at the bottom of the warehouse to ensure continuous and stable feeding of the biomass pellet making machine, reduce wear and tear, and ensure stable production and high efficiency;
  4. Cooling: High-temperature pellets enter the pellet cooler through the conveyor belt for cooling;
  5. Packing and warehousing: the cooled granules enter the packaging machine for packaging.

 Biomass fuel pellet production process

(1) Crushing

The raw materials in the raw material warehouse are conveyed to the crusher for crushing through the belt, and after crushing by the crusher, it is convenient for the dryer to dry the moisture.

(2) Drying

Since the moisture in the raw materials may not meet the production requirements, the raw materials need to be dried. The drying process of this biomass pellet line project uses biomass particles as fuel, and the heat source of the dryer is provided by the fluidized bed furnace burning biomass fuel.

(3) Cooling and pelleting

The dried biomass material is conveyed to the biomass fuel pellet granulator by the belt conveyor for molding, and then cooled by the cooler, and finally the finished product is sent to the finished product warehouse by the bucket elevator.

Note: The fuel for the biomass fluidized furnace is the biomass fuel pellets produced by the project itself, and the annual biomass pellet fuel is 14400t. The exhaust gas production of the project is 5000m3/h. This kind of biomass fuel does not contain S component, and the consumption of biomass fuel in fluidized furnace kiln is about 300kg/h.

2T/H biomass pellet manufacturing plant design

This project utilizes the existing factory buildings for construction, without civil construction, and can be operated after the purchased equipment is installed and debugged.

This biomass pelletizing plant project uses dry walnut shells, sawdust and shavings and other biomass raw materials to make biomass granules by removing impurities, crushing (raw materials other than sawdust), granulating and cooling, and then packaging and storing them for takeaway. The production scale is 5000t/ a.

(Note: The raw materials used in this project are sun-dried walnut shells and dried sawdust shavings, so no drying is required).

  1. Removal of impurities: manual selection and removal of impurities in raw materials, mainly beverage bottles, cigarette cases, masks, cigarette butts, iron nails, etc.;
  2. Crushing: use a pulverizer to crush raw materials other than sawdust, including walnut shells and shavings, into biomass fines with a particle size of less than 1mm;
  3. Pelleting: The powdery raw materials are conveyed to the biomass pellet molding machine through the closed feeding auger. This project adopts the normal temperature molding process without adding binders. (Related product: biomass pellet mill for sale)
  4. Cooling: Under the friction of normal temperature extrusion, the temperature of the extruded particles is 55–65℃, which is easy to break and must pass through a counter-flow cooling system.

    In this 2t/h biomass pellet manufacturing plant project, a fan is installed on the finished product conveyor belt to pass the counter-flow cold air to the material. The surface is cooled, and after cooling to normal temperature, it can be transported to the packaging machine for bagging and storage. The cooling method is air cooling;
  5. Packing and warehousing and sale: the cooled biomass pellets are sent to the packaging machine with the finished product conveyor belt for packaging, and then transported to the finished product warehouse or sold outside.
