Working Principle Of wheat straw pellet machine

The straw wheat pellets machine uses an annular die and a pressure roller as the main working parts, and is mainly composed of a feeding system, a mixing and tempering system, a transmission system and a forming system.

Working Principle Of wheat straw pellet machine

Working principle:

  • The motor drives the ring die to rotate, and due to friction, the material on the ring die drives the pressure roller to rotate.
  • After the material is sent into the pressing chamber by the forced feeder, as the ring die and the pressure roller rotate, they squeeze each other, and the material sandwiched between them is continuously compressed.
  • As the internal pressure and density of the material continue to increase, it reaches a certain density. The material is pressed into the ring die hole, and after a period of pressure holding and shaping, the wheat straw pellet with a certain density is formed.

Since the diameter of the wheat straw pellet is small and the compression ratio of the ring die is large, the moisture content of the raw material is required to be relatively high.

Generally, it is suitable for molding when the moisture content is between 12% and 15% and the raw material particle size is between 1 and 5 mm.

5-10t/h Complete set wheat straw pellet plant Construction projects

01 Types of raw materials

Both wheat straw solid pellet fuel and pellet feed use biomass such as straw as the main raw material.

  • Pellet feed generally uses crop straw as raw material.
  • ln addition to various crop straws, the raw materials for straw solid pellet fuel include fruit tree prunings, fruit shells, sawdust, etc.

02 Raw ingredients and additives

  • Wheat straw pellet fuel usually has a single raw material, and generally no or a small amount of additives are added. The ingredients of additives include CaO, MgO, dolomite, kaolin, diatomaceous earth, etc., but such additives have no significant effect on molding.
  • Feed pellets usually add some auxiliary ingredients to the raw materials to increase the nutritional content of the pellet feed. Protein, starch, fat, sugar and other substances are often added to pellet feed.

Pellets of feed are easier to mold than straw solid molding fuel and cause less wear on the mold.

03 Raw material moisture

  • In pellet feed, in order to ensure the quality of the pellets, the moisture content must be limited. The moisture content can be divided into two types: contained in the raw material itself and added. The moisture content of the raw materials themselves should be 12% to 13%. For raw materials with high fiber and natural protein content, the moisture content should not exceed 13% to 14%. Generally, the total moisture content of materials is 16%~18%.
  • Wheat straw pellet fuel generally requires the moisture content of raw materials to be less than 15%, which is basically the same as the moisture content requirements of pellet feed.

04  Particle size of raw materials

The particle size requirements for straw crushing are basically the same for feed and fuel. Generally, particles with a diameter of 8mm are produced. The particle size should be <10mm, and materials >6mm should not exceed 20%.

Wheat straw pellet fuel is more difficult to form than feed, mainly because of the different types of additives, and the additives in feed are all conducive to forming.

Final Pellet (mm)2-62-62-62-62-62-6

What are the differences between the technological processes of processing wheat straw fuel pellets and processing wheat straw feed pellets? Can you elaborate?

(1) Raw material preparation process

  • The raw material preparation process for pellet feed production is one: generally there is the process of removing large impurities and iron impurities.
  • At present, there is no impurity removal process for the production of biomass briquettes. The condition of the raw materials is very complicated, and it is easy to be mixed with soil, gravel, iron filings, etc., which affects equipment production.

(2) Powder crushing process

Fuel and feed requirements are roughly the same. This process directly affects the particle size of the material. Generally speaking, the finer the grinding degree of the raw material, the higher the molding quality, but the greater the energy consumption.

Due to the small surface area of coarsely crushed raw materials, the transfer speed of heat and moisture is slow. Sometimes the formed particles lose their plastic deformation ability before they are extruded out of the die holes, and are finally blocked in the die holes.

If the crushing particle size is too coarse, it will be easier to break after molding and have poor stability. At the same time, it will also produce a grinding effect on the contact parts, increase friction, increase energy consumption, and reduce output.

Whether it is producing straw solid molding fuel or pellet feed, the size of the crushed particles directly affects the quality of molding and the life and energy consumption of the mold. This process is an indispensable part of the process.

straw biomass pellet production

(3) Mixing process

  • In pellet feed, in order to ensure the nutritional component content and uniformity of the product, the requirements for batching accuracy and mixing uniformity are relatively high. Special mixing equipment is used to mix the material more uniformly.
  • The production of straw solid briquette fuel is crushed and then pressed. There is no special mixing equipment, the mixing process requirements are not strict, the uniformity of the material is poor, and the particle size of the material may be different.

(4) Quenching and tempering process

  • The conditioning effect in the feed process has a particularly important impact on the molding process. Conditioning is a process of preparing for molding. It is a hydrothermal treatment of feed. This process gelatinizes starch, denatures protein, and softens the feed. It not only improves the quality and effect of pressed granules, but also increases the nutritional value of the feed and improves the palatability of the feed. properties and their digestion and absorption rate.
  • Wheat straw pellet fuel generally does not have a conditioning process. The material is only transported to the wheat straw granulator through a screw conveyor. This process only has a certain stirring effect and does not change the characteristics of the raw materials. In order to maintain the range of moisture content during the pressing process, some straw solid molding fuels add a humidity adjustment process during the transportation process to achieve the appropriate moisture content for raw material molding.

(5) Granulation process

  • The SZLH ring die wheat straw pellet mill is mainly used for processing straw feed pellets. The equipment can be equipped with a single-layer or double-layer conditioner.
  • The MZLH ring die wheat straw pellet mill is mainly used for processing straw fuel pellets. This equipment is not equipped with a conditioner because the molding process used for fuel processing does not require aging.

Some fuel plants directly use feed molding equipment to produce straw solid molded fuel. Problems such as fast wear of key components, easy clogging, and discontinuous production have arisen during the work. The reason is that the production conditions of straw solid molding fuel are poor, containing many impurities, large dust, simple production process, large losses to the molding machine, high energy consumption, reduced productivity, and the ring mold and pressure roller are easily damaged.

Therefore, pellet feed molding equipment cannot directly produce straw solid molding fuel. RICHI wheat straw fuel pelletizer is innovatively designed on the basis of pellet feed straw pelletizer.

Based on the basic characteristics and working conditions of straw solid pellet fuel, a reasonable and efficient straw pelletizer equipment is improved and designed, which can completely Meet the production requirements of straw solid pellet fuel. It is currently running stably in pellet production lines in many countries.

MZLH straw pellet mill

(6) Spraying process

  • The production of high-energy feed generally adopts the method of external coating. Some animals obtain necessary fatty acids from fat. It is obviously inappropriate to add these fatty oils to the feed before molding. In order to ensure its nutrition, a layer is coated on the surface of the pellets after molding, to facilitate the absorption of fatty acids. The external coating makes the surface of the feed pellets smoother and glossier, making it less likely to fall off.
  • Wheat straw pellet fuel does not require an external coating process.

The mixing, conditioning and external coating processes of pellet feed are beneficial to the molding of pellets, reduce wear on the molding machine, and ensure the normal service life of the mold roller. These are not required in the straw solid molding fuel production process.


 Which countries are suitable for customers to purchase wheat straw pellet machines and establish wheat straw pellet production lines?

As one of the three largest food crops in the world, wheat plays an important role in the dietary structure of most countries around the world. There are many countries that grow wheat in the world, but the production is mainly concentrated in China, India, Russia, the United States, Australia, France, Ukraine, Pakistan, Germany, Canada, Argentina, Kazakhstan, Turkey and other countries.

Therefore, correspondingly, there will be a lot of wheat straw left after the wheat harvest. Making good use of these wastes and investing in the field of pellet processing is very promising. (Find RICHI on YouTube)


Why should we use wheat straw pellet machine to process straw pellets?

The world produces more than one billion tons of crop straw every year. However, so much straw has not been fully utilized.

A large amount of straw piles occupy land and become a habitat for crop diseases and insect pests, resulting in reduced food production and increased pesticide expenses.

  • Straws are burned or discarded, which not only wastes precious fiber resources, but also causes serious environmental pollution, which cannot be prevented.
  • Straw fires also cause heavy losses to farmers and pose a great threat to the traffic safety of highways and railways and the take-off and landing safety of civil aviation flights.

Therefore, the production technology and complete set of equipment for processing wheat straw pellet feed and fuel using a wheat straw pellet machine are of great significance.

 It can not only turn waste into treasure and return it to the fields, but also increase the income of farmers and solve the employment of a large number of farmers. It can reduce environmental pollution, protect the ecological environment, and promote a virtuous cycle in the agricultural industry.


What are the characteristics of wheat straw pellet fuel?

Under the action of a certain external pressure, biomass raw materials such as wheat straw reach a certain temperature due to the friction between the materials and between the materials and the mold roller. Coupled with the bonding effect of lignin, the plant body becomes dense and uniform.

When the external pressure is removed, the original structure and shape cannot be restored due to the entanglement between fiber molecules. After cooling, the strength increases and becomes a pellet fuel.

wheat straw fuel pellets
  • Biomass wheat straw pellet fuel usually refers to cylindrical biomass solid molded fuel made from crushed solid biomass raw materials that are compressed by a molding machine. The diameter is ≤25mm and the aspect ratio is ≤4. Common diameter sizes are 6, 8, and 10mm;
  • The density of wheat straw pellet fuel is significantly increased and the volume is significantly reduced, making it easier to transport and store;
  • Small size and large contact area with air, which is conducive to combustion;
  • Consistent specifications facilitate automated transportation and combustion;
  • Can be used as fuel for industrial boilers, residential area heating and household cooking and heating.
  • The higher the volatile content of the wheat straw fuel, the easier it is to ignite and the better the combustion performance. The volatile content of biomass wheat straw pellet fuel is as high as 60% to 70%, which is much higher than that of coal, so its ignition performance and combustion performance are better than that of coal. coal;
  • The carbon content is 35% to 42%, which is much lower than coal. This makes its calorific value lower than coal; the N content is 0.5% to 3%, and the S content is only 0.1% to 0.5%t. The emissions of NOx and SO2 during combustion are much lower than coal. The emitted CO2 and wheat straw photosynthesis absorb The CO2 reaches a balance and basically achieves zero emissions;
  • Compared with biomass resources in their original state, wheat straw pellet fuels burn for a longer period of time. It can be seen that biomass pellet fuel is a “high-quality, clean and efficient” fuel.

Among the five raw materials: wheat straw, cotton straw, corn straw, corn cob and rice straw, which raw material has the best granulation effect?

Different types of straw raw materials have large differences in their biological structures. In addition, the chemical composition, such as ash content, is different, so the ease of compression molding is also different.

  • In terms of maximum pressure, wheat straw is the smallest, 82.7MPa, and cotton straw is the largest, 88MPa;
  • In terms of maximum deformation, wheat straw is the largest, 93.8mm, and corn straw is the smallest, 86.6mm.

For example, compression molding of five raw materials:

  • The order of pressure from large to small is: cotton straw>corn straw>corn cob>rice straw>wheat straw.
  • Under the same pressure, the order of deformation of raw materials from large to small is: wheat straw>rice straw>corn cob>corn straw>cotton straw
  • For the maximum compression density, the order from large to small is: wheat straw>rice straw>cotton straw>corn straw>corn cob.

Through analysis, it can be concluded that the compression molding effect of wheat straw is the best in terms of low maximum pressure and high maximum compression density.

However, it needs to be clear that some raw materials are really good, but for many customers the cost is too high or cannot be obtained, so these raw materials are not suitable for these customers.

No matter which country you come from, no matter what kind of straw pellet processing you want to do, please remember that the raw material that suits you (low cost, easy to obtain, and economically effective) is the best choice.

How does the wheat stalk pellet machine work

 I want to invest in a straw recycling project. Is it better to process straw pellets or use straw gasification?

At present, the investment in straw gasification equipment is relatively large. Moreover, since straw is directly gasified, its use must be in rural areas. The low living standards in rural areas limit the promotion of gasification technology. In addition, straw is large in size, light in weight, and cannot be transported, making it unavailable to high-end consumers in cities and towns.

Compared with straw gasification, straw pellet fuel is safer and more reliable. On the basis of absorbing foreign research results and combining its own years of design experience, RICHI has achieved the production of straw pellet fuel by improving the wheat straw pellet machine and granulation technology.

We add two kinds of mineral raw materials during the wheat straw pelletizer machine granulation process. Without affecting the combustion value, we can ensure that the tender pellets prevent the overall deformation and fall apart during the burning process, and achieve the complete combustion effect of the tender hardwood pellets, which has firepower. It is strong, pollution-free and suitable for various burners.
