How to make wood pellets? Process flow of wood pellet manufacturing plant

RICHI wood pellet manufacturing plants usually include these processes: Material Preparation Section – Drying Section – Grinding Section – Pelleting Section – Cooling Section – Bagging & Storage Section

Most pellets are produced in large-scale wood pellet plants. If you’re considering making your own pellets, this guide will teach you how to make wood pellets and better teach you how to choose wood pellet making equipment.

Process flow of wood pellet manufacturing plant

The following is an example of log wood pellets. The steps for using log wood pellets from various trees such as pine, fir, beech, oak, and eucalyptus are as follows:

Peeling Section

The equipment used to peel the logs is the RICHI tooth roller peeling machine. Peeling can increase the combustion calorific value of the finished pellets, reduce the ash residue after combustion, and reduce emissions.

Slicing Section

After the trunk of the log is peeled, it is cut into small wood chips by a slicer. The size of the wood chips is 20-30mm and the thickness is about 5-10mm, and then enters the subsequent processing section.


The wood chips cut into blocks are fed into the crusher and finely powdered into 3-4mm wood chips. This section works without dust emission. After the materials are crushed, they are pneumatically transported and discharged by the negative pressure suction of the fan.


Before making wood pelletss, the raw materials must be dry. Depending on the raw materials used, the moisture content should be between 13% and 15%. In order for the granulation process to work properly, the raw materials should have the right amount of moisture. Drying the raw materials to the right moisture content is critical to making high-quality pellets.


Finally, the granulation process is carried out, and the diameter of the processed finished granules is 6-10mm. RICHI’s MZLH series wood pellet making machine can process various biomass wood pellets.

Cooling and packaging

After granulation and cooling, it is packed and packaged. The temperature of the pellets after cooling is generally not higher than room temperature 5℃, and the moisture content of the wood pellets after cooling is less than 10%, which is convenient for storage. RICHI can adjust packaging equipment according to customers’ requirements for finished product packaging. It can also be stored in bulk or in steel warehouses.

After natural drying, they will be screened. process.
    Raw materials with a humidity of 15% do not contain impurities such as iron blocks and stones. They do not need to be dried, screened or dried, and can be directly transported to the granulation process for granulation. The moisture content of the purchased wood board factory scraps is about 15%. After being crushed by the crusher, it enters the crusher and is crushed again into small particles of raw material. After crushing, it enters the granulation process for granulation.
  2. Screening: The material enters the screening machine through a closed pipeline for screening. The raw material has a small particle size, less than 2.5mm, and can be directly entered into the granulation process through the conveyor belt for granulation. This process is mainly to screen out the larger particles contained in the raw material. Large iron blocks, stones and other impurities.
  3. Granulation: The dried material is transported to the silo for storage through a belt, and then transported from the silo to the pellet machine for granulation. The main working parts of the pellet machine are the laminating and pressing rollers.
    The laminating wall is evenly distributed with die holes, and the mechanical and the friction between biomass raw materials and between biomass wood raw materials generates heat. The temperature of the material can reach about 70°C, softening the lignin and extruding it from the die hole to obtain a solid molded fuel with a certain shape and specification. No additives are used in the compression process, with the lignin acting as a binder.
  4. Cooling: The product is obtained after the pellets are naturally cooled. Stacked in bulk in the finished product area.
