Why use rice husk pellet machine to process rice husk pellets?
The main reason for using rice husk pellet mill machine to process rice husk pellets comes from the advantages and value of rice husk and rice husk pellets themselves.
- Rice Husk Is Rich In Resources:
Rice husk biomass pellet fuel technology is easy to achieve large-scale production and use, and the convenience of using biomass pellets is comparable to that of gas, fuel oil and other energy sources.
Therefore, the use of rice husk pellet machines to make full use of agricultural and forestry wastes such as rice husks, sawdust, straw, etc. to produce pellet fuels has good economic and social benefits.
- Simple Processing Technology Of Rice Husk Pellets:
Compared with other types of biomass pellet products, rice husk pellets have wider sources of raw materials, lower prices, better molding effects, and simpler production processes.
Rice husk occupies a large weight in the proportion of agricultural residues. Therefore, it is necessary to develop and manufacture rice husk pellet mills and production processes that use rice husks as raw materials to produce biomass pellets.
- Rice Husk Pellets Can Save Storage Space:
During the rice processing process, about 20% of the rice husks can be separated by the huller, which are generally used as fuel for boilers for direct combustion or as raw materials for biological fertilizers.
Rice husks that have not been crushed require a large warehouse capacity, inconvenient transportation, and a small sales area.
The crushed rice husk can be transported over long distances, but the power of the motor of the grinder is large, and the dust pollution during the crushing process is large.
Performance advantages of rice husk pellets
Rice husk pellets have excellent performance, and some indicators are better than raw coal, especially the environmental performance indicators. Its use performance and pollution discharge indicators can fully meet the requirements as an alternative energy source. It is certain that the rice husk energy pellet product has a huge utilization prospect.
As a commodity, rice husk energy pellets made by rice husk pellet machine are inevitably transported.
During the transportation process, rice husk biomass pellet products will be bumped and vibrated to varying degrees, and some pellets with low bonding strength will be broken into powder, which will seriously affect the performance of biomass pellet products.
The mechanical crushing rate of rice husk pellets is 2.5%, which fully meets the requirements for the transportation performance of pellet products.
After the rice husk pellets are ignited, the heat release rate increases rapidly, reaching the peak at 305 s, and can maintain a relatively high heat release rate above 100 kW/m² for a long time. After testing, the effective value of the heat release rate of rice husk biomass pellets is 138.9 kW/m², which is similar to most wood and is in the safe range.
The calorific value of rice husk pellets is above 18 003.2 kJ/kg, while the calorific value of raw coal is generally around 20 934 kJ/kg. This shows that the calorific value produced by the combustion of rice husk biomass pellets is close to that of raw coal, which fully meets the thermal efficiency requirements of alternative energy sources.
Soot Emission Performance
The blackness of exhaust smoke when rice husk pellets are burned is determined to be less than grade 1. It fully complies with the regulations of many countries on the emission of smoke and dust.
The effective value for the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) released when rice husk pellets are burned is 1.42 kg/kg. The effective value of the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) released when raw coal is burned is 2.6 kg/kg, which is almost twice that of the mixture of biomass pellets. In addition, rice hull pellets do not have pollution emission problems at all.

RICHI does not provide vertical ring die pellet mills. The horizontal ring die type rice husk pellet making machine is the flagship product of Richi Machinery. Whether it is in the field of biomass pellet processing or feed pellet processing, the horizontal ring die pellet mill has incomparable advantages.
Looking at the global pellet machine market, well-known international brands also use horizontal ring die pellet machines. Manufacturers who really understand pellet machines will not follow the trend to manufacture vertical pellet mills. This explains why horizontal ring die pellet mills are always the most widely used pellet forming equipment.
As an additional product in the rice processing, rice husk has the characteristics of small particle size, light weight, flammability and compression, etc. It has abundant yield and convenient access.
At present, rice husks are widely used in social production. In addition to processing rice husk pellets by rice husk pellet machine, other applications can be divided into the following categories:
① Direct combustion
The bulk density of rice husks is small (about 120kg/m³), therefore, rice husks are usually compressed into granular, block or rod-shaped fuel during use, which can be used for combustion power supply or heating in winter, so as to facilitate collection, transportation and efficient utilization. Improve the utilization rate of rice husk in production and life.
② Agricultural life application
Due to the small particle size of rice husk, good air permeability, and easy fermentation in a wet state, it is often used in the cultivation of edible fungi or soil improvement in agricultural life. At the same time, the rice husk can be pressed into shape to prepare degradable tableware.
③ Building materials
Rice husk material has low density and soft texture. Adding an appropriate amount of rice husk material to building materials can help improve the mechanical properties of building materials, reduce the material density and have the functions of moisture-proof, waterproof and fire-proof.
④ Chemical products
Rice husk material contains a large amount of silicon, which exists in an amorphous state and has special application value. It is often used to prepare high-quality, high-precision silicon-containing compounds, including SiO2, SiC, SiCw and other materials.
At present, in many livestock and poultry feed factories, rice husk is often added as a raw material. Rice husk pellet feed can completely replace straw to feed cattle, and it is convenient to transport and store straw, thus reducing the production cost in feeding, and the feeding amount is generally controlled within 20% of the weight of concentrated feed.
Rice husk can also be used to process fermented feed and extruded feed. When you belong to this situation, you need to use our rice husk pellet machine for feed.
The above methods are currently several mature methods for the utilization of rice husks, but since each treatment method has its own limitations, in terms of current market application and technological development, rice husk molding pellet fuel is still the most important method for rice husks in the current market.
The mainstream of shell use is one of the cutting-edge technologies of biomass energy research.
The 4t/h rice husk pellet machine price is 30,000-100,000 USD. Generally speaking, our technical consultant will send our quotation to the customer within 24 hours, and attach the detailed information, pictures and running video of the equipment.
Adding rice husk to livestock and poultry feed formula is a good choice. But we need to further confirm some information, such as what are the main raw materials you use? Are there other special raw materials such as grass? Want to buy a stand-alone machine or a production line? What is the proportion of rice husk used…
The composition of raw materials and the proportion of special materials greatly affect the output of the pellet mill. In order to provide accurate quotations, our technical consultants will further confirm the above questions with you when talking about your project.
From a single rice husk pellet machine to a rice husk pellet plant, from site planning to design drawings, from technical training to installation and commissioning.
