The pellet fuel produced by RICHI wood pellet production line can not only save energy but also have good economic and social benefits. It is the best choice to replace fossil fuels.
Our wood pellet fuel processing line can be customized according to user needs such as the characteristics and production capacity of different wood waste and other biomass waste!
How to invest in the construction of a 5 t/h wood pellet processing plant?
As an excellent choice to replace highly polluting fossil fuels (coal, fuel oil, etc.), biomass pellets are increasingly becoming a rookie in the energy industry. The wood pellet machine is also an important production equipment in the energy industry. Choosing a good wood pellet machine is crucial to your success, and RICHI pellet machine is your best choice.
(1) Regarding investing in building a factory, first you need to purchase the entire production line. The equipment required depends on your feedstock, the smaller the physical size of the feedstock, the less equipment is required.
For example, if you use fresh logs, you need not only coarse crushing and fine crushing equipment, but also a dryer to process the raw materials. In this case, the investment will obviously be relatively high;
If you use dry wood chips, shavings (generally easy to obtain from sawdust mills, furniture factories, board factories), all you need are screening machines, pellet machines, cooling machines, and packaging machines.
Therefore, you need to fully consider the factors of raw materials to choose a 5t/h wood pellet processing plant construction plan, or you can also consult us, and RICHI engineers will tailor a solution for you to help you succeed!
(2) In addition, the quality of the equipment cannot be ignored. Excellent and precise workmanship, high standard quality control means low machine failure rate and high pellet yield rate.
A good wood pellet maker can achieve continuous production throughout the day without any problems, the quality of granules can strictly meet the requirements of customers, and the equipment is completely fault-free, allowing you to use it with peace of mind and peace of mind.

The production process of this 5t/h wood pellet processing plant project is relatively simple, and all processes are physical processes.
(1) Raw materials
The raw materials of the project are transported by car to the raw material workshop for standby.
The sawdust raw material of this project has been crushed before entering the factory, and can be directly entered into the wood granulator machine for granulation. The raw material for granulation is only wood chips without any additives. The principle of the wood pellet press is that fine materials are rolled and extruded by rollers.
The granulation process adopts electric heating, and the granulation temperature is 80℃-120℃. Sawdust is deformed and extruded into granules under high temperature and high pressure. Transported to the next process by belt conveyor.
(Water vapor is the evaporation of water in raw materials due to high temperature and high pressure in the granulation process. The moisture content of raw materials for this project is about 8%, and the moisture content of finished products is 7.8%. The water vapor generated by this project is about 24t/a.)
The temperature of compressed wood pellets is generally 40-50℃, and they need to be cooled during packaging. The finished products after granulation are transported to the finished product yard by the conveyor belt for natural cooling.
And then packaged after cooling. In order to save costs, and the customer’s local labor cost is low, we design a manual packaging section for the customer.
(1) Water supply
The water supply of this 5t/h wood pellet processing plant project comes from the self-provided well in the factory area. During the operation period of this project, no water is needed for production, and the water used is mainly domestic water for employees.

5 t/h wood pellet processing plant design
- Crushing: The new design wood pellet line project will manually sieve the purchased waste wood, waste wooden furniture and other materials that do not contain toxic and harmful substances such as paint and glue, and place large pieces (pieces) of raw materials through forklifts or forklifts. Crushing is carried out on the machine.
- Grinding: small pieces (pieces) of raw materials are crushed together with the crushed materials through a grinder (the particle size after crushing is less than 5mm), and the crushed wood powder is transported to the wood pellet machine through a closed pipeline Equipment granulation chamber.
- Granulation: Through the high-speed rotation of the ring die, the sawdust raw material begins to heat up and become soft (the pressure of the high-speed rotating roller can reach 300T, and the temperature of the sawdust can reach 100℃ to 130℃).
The softened and heated sawdust raw material is extruded through the holes of the ring die under strong pressure. During this process, the wood chip has increased compactness, reduced moisture content, and a compression ratio of 5.5:1.
