What is fuel pellet making machine?

The ring die fuel pellet making machine is the current mainstream equipment for fuel pellet processing, with the advantages of high output and strong adaptability to raw materials.


It mainly uses forest waste (such as tree trunks, wood chips, sawdust, wooden pallets, bark, leaves, branches, etc.), agricultural waste (such as straw, peanut shells, sunflower seed shells, rice husks, coconut shells, bamboo, bagasse, reeds) , hay, miscanthus, etc.), as well as other materials with a certain calorific value (such as coal, waste paper, cow dung, horse dung, organic waste in industrial production and urban organic waste, etc.) as fuel raw materials.

Pelleted fuel pellets are mainly used in industrial boilers and large power plants as well as home heating.

  • Capacity: 0.3-12 T/H (single machine)
  • Price: 10,000-100,000 USD
  • Applicable customers: fuel pellet plant, wood pellet factory, biomass pellet plants, lumber mills, farms, power plants, farms, industrial enterprises, etc.

What raw materials are suitable for fuel pellet making machines?

Fuel pellet machine is an efficient device that converts different raw materials into pelletized fuel. Fuels made from different raw materials have their own unique characteristics and application scenarios. The raw materials suitable for fuel pellet mills come from a wide range of sources, including wood, crop waste, livestock and poultry manure, urban organic waste, etc.

forest waste

Wood raw material mainly comes from forestry waste and wood processing residues. This fuel has the advantages of high calorific value, stable combustion, and low ash content, and is suitable for high-temperature, high-load combustion equipment such as large boilers and industrial kilns. In areas with developed forestry, wood biomass fuel can also promote the recycling of forestry waste and reduce environmental pollution.

agricultural waste

Agricultural crop waste is also an important source of biomass fuel, such as straw, rice husk, etc. This type of fuel has the characteristics of large output, wide distribution and easy collection, and is suitable for use in rural and small industrial boilers. The utilization of crop waste can not only solve rural energy problems, but also reduce environmental pollution caused by burning straw in farmland.

horse manure

Animal manure

Manure fuel is made by drying and fermenting livestock and poultry manure. This fuel is environmentally friendly, renewable, and low-carbon, and is suitable for biomass power generation, biomass pyrolysis and other fields. The manure fuel can not only realize the resource utilization of livestock and poultry waste, but also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote sustainable development of agriculture.

turning paper waste into pellets

Other organic waste

Organic waste is also one of the important sources of biomass fuel. This type of waste can be made into biomass fuel with high calorific value after sorting, crushing, drying and other treatments. The application of urban organic waste biomass fuel is mainly concentrated in the fields of biomass power generation and biomass heating, which can effectively alleviate urban energy pressure and reduce environmental pollution caused by landfills.


In addition to the above common raw materials, there are also some special biomass fuels, such as algae biomass fuel, microbial biomass fuel, etc. These fuels have unique advantages and application prospects, such as fast growth rate, high photosynthesis efficiency, and strong environmental adaptability. They are an important direction for the future development of biomass fuels.

The use of biomass fuel can reduce dependence on fossil energy, reduce carbon emissions, and is environmentally friendly and sustainable.


The wood fuel pellet mill can be used to process a variety of raw materials at the same time. It can not only process wood chips, but also be used to pellet various raw materials such as straw, peanut shells, coconut shells, municipal waste, and industrial waste. This provides a feasible way for the comprehensive utilization of waste.

working principle of fuel pellet making machine

working principle of fuel pellet making machine

Molding fuel is made by drying and pulverizing various dispersed raw materials with no certain shape to a certain particle size, and then extruding them into regular, larger-density rods, blocks, and balls under certain conditions of temperature, humidity, and pressure.

The density of these solid materials formed by compression can reach 1.1~1.4t/m3, and the volume is 6~8 times smaller than before compression. The energy density is equivalent to that of medium-quality bituminous coal.

During the combustion process, the furnace temperature is high, the firepower is long-lasting, and the combustion characteristics are obviously improved.

how to make pellet fuel? Complete fuel pellet machine system design

I believe many customers know that if they want to process fuel pellets, a fuel pellet making machine alone is not enough. The fuel pellet machine is the direct equipment for processing fuel pellets, not the only equipment.

So how to make fuel pellets? The processing flow of fuel pellets production usually includes: crushing, pulverizing, drying, granulating, cooling and packaging. Generally speaking, a complete fuel wood pellet production line requires 2-6 people to complete the process from crushing to packaging.

Complete fuel pellet machine system design
  1. First, the raw materials are processed by a crusher to crush them into sizes suitable for subsequent processing. Depending on the type and physical state of the raw materials, the crushing equipment used is different.
    For example, if you want to crush very thick tree trunks, you need crushing equipment such as peelers, wood splitters, slicers, and wood pellet hammer mills; if you want to crush straw, you need equipment such as haymakers and straw crushers; If you need to crush wooden pallets, you need wood pallet crusher machine and wood chips hammer mill.
  2. Remove moisture from raw materials through drying equipment to ensure efficient granulation process.
  3. The dried raw materials are fed into the fuel wood pellet mill machine for compression molding, and the fuel particles are made solid and dense through the action of high temperature and high pressure.
  4. Through cooling and screening, the pellets are cooled to room temperature and classified for storage and transportation.
  5. Qualified biofuel wood pellets after screening can be stored or transported in bulk, or particle packaging equipment can be used to package them for storage or sale.

RICHI has the design and build experience to create a custom design for your fuel pellet production plant site. From single pelleting systems to a complete fuel pellet production line system, we’ll put our broad industry knowledge to work, helping you simplify your decisions and achieve your production goals for a variety of materials. how to start a fuel pellet plant?

With the progress of society and economic development, humankind’s demand for energy is increasing day by day, but fossil energy sources such as coal, oil, and natural gas are continuously decreasing.

Raw materials such as agricultural and forestry wastes, industrial wastes, and municipal solid wastes have the characteristics of a wide range of sources of raw materials. Especially agricultural and forestry wastes are also renewable and have attracted more and more attention.

Among them, pellet fuel is compressed from crushed solid raw materials into cylindrical solid molded fuel through a fuel pellet making machine. The diameter is generally no more than 12 mm, the length is no more than 4 times its diameter, and the density after compression is 5 to 10 times the original.

It has the ability to store It has the characteristics of small space, convenient transportation, clean and environmentally friendly use, high thermal efficiency, and sustainable utilization, and has broad development prospects.

Pellets are generally not used immediately after production and need to be stored in the factory for at least 6 months. During this long period of time, what storage form is used and what are the requirements for temperature and humidity during the storage process? It is an important link to ensure that pellet fuel does not become moldy or deteriorate.
