complete turnkey pellet plant process flow

1. Raw material processing

The main raw materials of biomass pellet include wood chips, sawdust, straw, wheat straw, corn straw, etc. These raw materials need to be processed to remove impurities, moisture, etc. to facilitate subsequent processing. Processing methods include cutting, crushing, screening, drying, etc. The quality of raw material processing directly affects the subsequent efficiency and the quality of pellet fuel.

(If the moisture content of the customer’s raw materials is not higher than 15%, you can granulate directly after crushing without using a biomass dryer; if it is higher than 15% but lower than 20%, you can consider mixing dry materials with wet materials to remove the moisture. After neutralization is reduced, granulation is carried out.)

2. Pelleting

After the raw materials are processed, they need to be compressed into granules for easy storage and transportation. Pellets manufacturing is part of the entire production process. Pellets are generally manufactured using a biomass pellet machine, which compresses raw materials into granules through high temperature and high pressure.

By changing different ring dies, pellets of different sizes can be produced. The choice of pellet machine is very important. Different pellet machines have different pressures and temperatures. Different pellet machines need to be selected according to different raw materials.

3. Cooling

The temperature of the biomass pellets coming out of the pellet machine is 80 degrees, which is not suitable for packaging and needs to be cooled by a cooler. Under the action of the cooling fan, the cold air in the air enters the cooling chamber in the air duct of the cooler fixed frame, and fully contacts the pellets through the gaps between the pellets for heat exchange.

4. Finished product packaging

The finished biomass pellets are screened through the rotary classification screen, and the biomass pellets above the screen enter the finished product bin. Then weigh and package according to a certain weight of the packaging bag. Under the sieve is powder. Enter the biomass pellet making machine through the pipeline to re-pellet.

After the above processing, the biomass pellets can be packaged and sold. Packaging requires selection of appropriate materials, quality of pellets and storage time.

Each link of turnkey pellet plant requires delicate operations to ensure the quality and production efficiency of biomass pellet.

Equipment for turnkey pellet plant

The principles for selecting turnkey pellet plant equipment are technological advancement, economical application, safety and durability, high efficiency and low consumption, easy maintenance, etc.

Use the perspective of sustainable development to select equipment that will last longer, so as to achieve continuous production and create benefits. The correct choice can be made based on personal economic strength, raw materials and site conditions.

40-45T/H turnkey pellet plant Process Description:

  1. Raw materials: The raw materials of this turnkey pellet plant project come from wheat straw, crop straw, corn straw, soybean straw, peanut straw, waste formwork, etc. from surrounding rural areas. The purchased and bundled straw is transported to the factory area and temporarily stored in the raw material warehouse in the project area.
    The purchased bales of straw are delivered to the raw material warehouse through loaders, forklifts, etc., and are manually loaded and unloaded onto the conveyor. The straw conveyor adopts a closed structure. Some raw materials with higher moisture content will be dried in the drying field before use.
  2. Crushing: Wheat straw, crop straw, corn straw, soybean straw, peanut straw, and waste templates are crushed by a crusher. After crushing, they can be granulated. The raw materials after crushing are less than 5mm.
  3. Granulation and molding: The biomass pellet making machine is a key equipment in the production line. This equipment can be used for different raw materials such as rice and wheat straw, sawdust, corn straw, soybean straw, cotton straw and peanut shells, and the equipment operates stably. The density of processed pellet fuel can reach 0.7 to 1.4 tons/cubic meter.
    The crushed materials are transported to the silo of the extrusion pellet machine through a closed feeding dragon. The silo is connected to the feeding chamber, and the materials undergo processes such as forming and shape retention in the die holes.
    Due to the increase in pressure in the biomass pellet press, the particles themselves deform and flow plastically, and generate a large amount of heat under the action of friction, causing the lignin contained in the raw materials to soften and the adhesive force to increase. After a certain period of time, it is extruded into a cylindrical shape. The rotating cutter cuts the material into a cylindrical shape and sends it out through the discharge port.
  4. Cooling: The temperature of biomass pellet fuel is as high as 80-90°C during granulation and discharging. The structure is relatively loose and easy to break. It must be cooled by an air cooling system and cooled to normal temperature before being bagged and stored. It is sent to the cooling machine through the belt conveyor for cooling. The cooling is completed in 2-3 minutes.
  5. Packaging and storage: This design uses a packaging conveyor for measurement, tape packaging, and delivery to the finished product warehouse.

50T/H turnkey pellet plant Process flow:

This biomass pellet mill line project plans to use locally purchased crop corn straw waste with a moisture content of about 18%, and process it into biomass block fuel through crushing, pressing, inspection, packaging and other processes.

  1. Crushing: After the crop corn straw raw materials are transported from the factory area to the production workshop by forklifts, they are first crushed by a crusher, and the crushed material particles enter the next step of pressing through a belt conveyor.
  2. Pressing: The crushed materials enter the biomass pelletizer machine through the belt conveyor. The pressure of the crushed raw materials is automatically adjusted using the principle of bidirectional rotation of the thrust bearing, and the raw materials are pressed into a dry matter density of 1.1-1.2t/m3 and a moisture content of less than 15 %, lumpy combustibles with a diameter of 20-40mm.
    The material does not need to add any additives or binders during processing. Crop straw materials contain a certain amount of cellulose and lignin. Lignin is the structural monomer in the material and is a phenylpropanoid-type polymer compound. It has the function of strengthening cell walls and binding cellulose. Lignin is amorphous, and its main part is insoluble in any solvent at room temperature.
    It has no melting point, but has a softening point. When the temperature reaches a certain value, the lignin softens and the bonding force increases, and under a certain pressure, the cellulose molecular groups are dislocated, deformed, and extended. The adjacent biomass pellets inside are meshed with each other, reassembled and suppressed.
  3. Inspection: Qualified products are weighed by electronic scales and transported to the biochemical boiler room through sealed pipelines after passing the inspection.
