1.6T/H Wood Pellet Line Process Flow

  • Mesh screen: Pour bark, wood ends, wood chaff, shavings and other biomass raw materials (which have been crushed when purchased) into the feeding hopper through a forklift, and the larger raw materials are screened out by the sieving machine, and the raw materials passed through the mesh screen Raw materials enter the drying furnace for drying.
  • Drying: Since the moisture in the raw materials may not meet the production requirements, the raw materials need to be dried. Another purpose of drying is to achieve the product molding temperature. The drying process of this project uses biomass fuel and large waste as fuel.

    The drying temperature is about 100℃. The hot air generated by biomass combustion fully contacts with the material to realize heat exchange.

    The material is continuously picked up and scattered in the inner layer of the dryer drum and travels in a spiral. The water evaporates, and water vapor is generated in this process. (Related product: Wood Chip Dryer)
  • Granulation and forming: the dried wood chips are sent to the wood pellet pressing machine, and pressed into the shape of granules in the wood pellet mill machine without any additives.
  • Packing and warehousing: The qualified finished products produced are packed in bags, weighed, packed, and put into warehousing for stacking.

Ground irrigation, dust reduction, etc., so there is no discharge of domestic wastewater. (Maybe you are interested in: 4T/H wood pelleting plant)
  • (3) Power supply project: Relying on the original power supply system of the factory area, that is, one S13-250/10KV transformer in the factory area is connected to the local power supply grid.
  • (4) Transportation conditions: The transportation outside the factory relies on the existing external roads, and the transportation inside the factory relies on the existing roads in the factory, and no new roads will be built.

2T/H Wood Pellet Line Process Flow Design

This project utilizes the existing factory buildings for construction, without civil construction, and can be operated after the purchased equipment is installed and debugged.

This project uses dry walnut shells, sawdust and shavings and other biomass raw materials to make biomass granules by removing impurities, crushing (raw materials other than sawdust), granulating and cooling, and then packaging and storing them for takeaway.

The production scale is 5000t/ a. (Note: The raw materials used in this project are sun-dried walnut shells and dried sawdust shavings, so no drying is required).

(1) Removal of impurities: manual selection and removal of impurities in raw materials, mainly beverage bottles, cigarette cases, masks, cigarette butts, iron nails, etc.;

(2) Crushing: use a pulverizer to crush raw materials other than sawdust, including walnut shells and shavings, into biomass fines with a particle size of less than 1mm;

(3) Granulation: The powdery raw materials are conveyed to the wood pellet making machine through the closed feeding auger. This project adopts the normal temperature molding process without adding binders. (Related product: wood pellet press for sale)

The principle is to compress it into a compact shape under high pressure extrusion. Solid particles, that is: biomass raw materials contain cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, etc., due to their loose structure and low density, when subjected to external forces, the raw materials will undergo rearrangement, mechanical deformation, elastic deformation, and plastic deformation stage.

And the intertwining and twisting between non-elastic or viscoelastic cellulose molecules, which makes the volume shrink and the density increase, which is a physical process;

(4) Cooling: Under the friction of normal temperature extrusion, the temperature of the extruded particles is 55–65 ℃, which is easy to break and must pass through a counter-flow cooling system. In this project, a fan is installed on the finished product conveyor belt to pass the counter-flow cold air to the material.

The surface is cooled, and after cooling to normal temperature, it can be transported to the packaging machine for bagging and storage. The cooling method is air cooling;

(5) Packaging storage and delivery: the cooled biomass pellets are sent to the packaging machine with the finished product conveyor belt for packaging, and then transported to the finished product warehouse or sold.
