Since miscanthus has a short growth cycle and relatively easy growing conditions, the cost of using this raw material is very low. Therefore, more and more people are beginning to use this raw material for granulation.

Whether it is for Miscanthus feed pellet processing or Miscanthus fuel pellet processing, miscanthus pellet mill and miscanthus pellet mill plant system can provide customers with high-quality pellet products and high-return earnings.

Main structure of miscanthus pellet mill

Miscanthus pellet milling machine is mainly composed of deceleration system, transmission system, granulation system and lubrication system.

Reduction system

The reducer is directly connected to the main motor to reduce the speed. It has the characteristics of accurate transmission, high efficiency, low noise, long life, etc. It can control the effective speed of the working spindle between 72 and 77 rpm to ensure the stability of the main machine.

Transmission system

The reducer drives the connecting spline shaft, and the connecting spline shaft drives the pressure wheel to drive the main shaft to rotate, and then drives the pressure wheel to rotate.

The working spindle and bearing chamber are made of steel castings to ensure the required strength during operation, thus meeting the normal and stable working requirements of the main engine.

The deceleration system and the main shaft are connected by a spline connection, which has the characteristics of high load-bearing capacity, good centering and guiding properties, and little weakening of the strength of the shaft.

Granulation system

Its main components are composed of a ring die, two pressure rollers, a feeding scraper, a die roller gap adjustment sleeve, an adjustment sleeve pull rod, and a die roller gap adjustment nut. (Find RICHI on YouTube

Working Principle Of miscanthus pellet mill

Working Principle Of miscanthus pellet mill

Working principle:

  • The crushed miscanthus material is fed into two pressing areas.
  • The pressing roller drive shaft drives the pressing roller to rotate.
  • The powder is rolled into the ring die and the pressing roller.
  • The two relatively rotating parts press the wood chips and other biomass powders together.
  • Gradually extruded, miscanthus powders are squeezed into the ring die hole, formed in the die hole, and continuously extruded toward the outer end of the die hole.
  • Then the cutter cuts the formed miscanthus pellets into the required length, and finally forms pellets.
  • Then enter the next process.

How to choose miscanthus pellet mill?

There are several things to note when choosing a miscanthus pellet making machine. Here are some tips from RICHI:

  1. When choosing a miscanthus pellets machine, first clarify what your raw materials are (pure miscanthus or mixed raw materials?), and also determine what type of pellets you process (miscanthus feed pellets or miscanthus fuel pellets?), and then according to your own requirements Choose the pellet machine that suits your raw materials.
  2. Secondly, clarify the output you need. For different raw material ratios, the output of the miscanthus granulator will be different. Therefore, especially when processing miscanthus feed pellets, the proportion of miscanthus will affect the selection of the pellet machine.
  3. The most easily overlooked thing when purchasing is the mold. Before shipping, be sure to let the miscanthus pellet granulator manufacturer conduct a test run before paying the balance. Many buyers ignore this aspect, causing the miscanthus pellet production machine to be unable to produce granules during operation, affecting normal production and leading to many subsequent problems.
  4. Finally, when choosing a miscanthus pellet equipment, it is recommended to buy one from a brand manufacturer. Nowadays, the pellet machine industry is relatively chaotic. Don’t listen to the manufacturers’ propaganda. You must do more research and comparison when purchasing, so as to avoid being deceived by some false propaganda.

How to make miscanthus pellets?

Different customers have different needs and product types, so the miscanthus pellet production process will also be different. RICHI will customize and design each miscanthus biomass pellet production line project according to customer needs and raw material conditions, and provide a series of services from design and manufacturing to installation, commissioning and training.

miscanthus pellet plant for fuel 5-10t/h
miscanthus pellet plant 10-20t/h

(The order of the following steps may be different, and some steps may not be necessary.)

  1. Crushing: Use a hay cutter, a bale breaker and a pasture grinder to crush miscanthus to less than 8mm; (According to the size and moisture content of the customer’s miscanthus, the equipment used in the crushing process is very different. If it is directly used miscanthus powder, then no crushing process is needed at all)
  2. Drying: The crushed materials are dried in a drum dryer;
  3. Mixing: If the feed pellets are processed, some grain raw materials and feed additives can be added as needed. When processing fuel pellets, additives are generally not required.
  4. Granulation: The dried or mixed materials are granulated by a miscanthus pellet mill.
  5. Cooling: High-temperature pellets enter the cooling machine through the conveyor belt for cooling;
  6. Packaging: The cooled miscanthus pellets enter the screening machine, and the qualified miscanthus pellets enter the packaging machine. The packaging specifications are different, and customers can choose according to their own needs. Some customers do not want packaging, so after cooling and screening, they are directly stacked in the finished product area.
