3T/H Wood Pellets Plant Process Flow

  • ①Crushing: Due to the large waste wood and sawdust, it needs to be crushed to meet the requirements of the briquette forming process. The wood and sawdust are crushed and refined to 3-8mm by a multifunctional crusher for slicing and chipping.

    The pulverizer is only equipped with a material inlet and a material outlet. After feeding, close the material inlet to reduce dust escape. The material outlet is connected to a closed-air cooling and hardening dust removal tower.

    The tower uses the principle of centrifugal force to separate the crushed materials. The crushed materials are deposited in the dust collector, discharged from the discharge port regularly, fall into the material conveyor, and are transported to the granulation process.
  • ②Granulation: The pulverized material is sent to the feeding hopper through the belt conveyor, and the electric feeding screw conveyor sends the material evenly to the granulation bin.

    The hole diameter of the mold is 6-10mm. Strong pressure friction occurs between the material in the granulation chamber, the pressure roller and the template to generate a lot of heat, which makes the material temperature rise to about 80-130 degrees.

    The wood fiber is softened and sterilized, and the whole granulation process does not use additional heat or hot steam. The wood pellet press is a closed device with only a small amount of dust escaping, and the generated dust is treated by the dust removal facilities of the equipment.
  • ③Cooling: The upper part of the steam cooling dedusting tower has a strong suction pipe to draw out hot steam, moisture and dust, and the particles are cooled and hardened by rolling for 3-5 minutes to further make the product a qualified finished product.
  • ④Inspection: If the inspection is qualified, it is the finished product, and the biomass pellets that do not meet the requirements will be reused in production.
  • ⑤Packing and warehousing: The qualified finished products produced are packed in bags, weighed, packed, and put into warehousing for stacking.

④Exhaust gas

The waste gas generated in the production process of this project is mainly the dust generated in the process of crushing, granulation, cooling, transportation, etc., which will be discharged in an organized manner after being treated by the dust removal equipment.

⑤ Noise

The noise pollution source of this project is mainly the operation noise of machinery and equipment such as pulverizers and wood pellet mills, and the noise value is about 65~85dB (A). It is planned to install sound insulation and shock absorption devices in the production workshop.

⑥Solid waste

The solid waste generated during the production process of this 3t/h wood pellet making plant project is mainly domestic garbage from employees, unqualified products and dust treated by dust removal devices.

Case 2: 3T/H Wood Pellets Plant Project

The project client is an enterprise mainly engaged in the production, processing and sales of biomass wood fuels. This project leases the existing production plant, which covers an area of 2,000 square meters and a construction area of 2,000 square meters.

It is equipped with crushing, crushing, granulation, raw material warehouses, and finished product warehouses. It uses waste wood as raw materials and can produce 20,000 tons of biomass wood pellets per year. The project rents the built factory building, and there is no earth building and decoration construction.

  • Construction nature: newly built
  • Investment: The total project investment is 220,000 US dollars
  • Power consumption: The power of this project is provided by the municipal power supply network, with an annual power load of about 50,000 kW•h.
  • Staff size: 5 employees.
  • Working system: 300 days a year, two shifts a day, 10 hours per shift.

3T/H Wood Pellets Plant Process Design

The project puts the purchased large raw materials on the crusher for crushing through a forklift or forklift, and the small raw materials are crushed together with the crushed materials (the particle size after crushing is below 5mm). The final wood powder is transported to the granulation room of the wood pellet machine equipment through pipelines.

Through the high-speed rotation of the pressing wheel, the wood chip raw material begins to heat up and become soft (the pressure of the high-speed rotating pressing wheel can reach 300T, and the temperature of the wood chip can reach 100℃~130℃ ) , the softened and heated sawdust raw material is extruded through the holes of the formwork under strong pressure.

complete biomass pellet plant

During this process, the density of the sawdust is increased, the moisture content is reduced, and the compression ratio is 5.5:1. Then it is naturally cooled and dried. After arriving at the finished product warehouse, it can be packaged and shipped.

During this production process, the crushing and pulverizing section is unable to be sealed, so there is dust and waste gas; because the granulation section is carried out in a closed equipment, and the biomass particles are output after being extruded under pressure, there is basically no dust and waste gas overflow at this stage.

Note: The moisture content of the raw materials of the project is 8%~15%, which meets the requirements of granulation and molding, so there is no need to dry or add water during the production process.

Case 3: 3T/H Wood Pellets Plant Project

This project leases a factory building of 1,800 square meters on one floor. The production scale is 8,000 tons of biomass pellets per year, and the raw material is 8,900 tons of wood. Construct a production line of biomass shaped pellets, the main production equipment includes 2 wood pelletizing machines, 1 wood sawdust pulverizer, 1 wood chipper and related supporting facilities.

3T/H Wood Pellets Plant Process Flow

  • ①Unloading: The purchased wood (with a moisture content within 10%, placed in the raw material warehouse, without drying) is transported by car to the warehouse of the factory.
  • ②Crushing: Pour the wood into the hopper and break it into small pieces through the crusher.
  • ③Crushing: The broken wood blocks are poured into the crusher for further crushing and processed into wood chips.
  • ④Granulation: Pour the crushed wood chips into the wood pellet mill, and the materials in the granulation bin are combined with the pressing rollers and templates.

    Strong pressure friction is generated between them to generate a large amount of heat, which raises the temperature of the material to about 80-130 degrees, softens the wood fiber and sterilizes the bacteria. The whole granulation process does not use another heat source or hot steam.
  • ⑤Packaging: The qualified finished products produced are packed in bags, weighed, packed, and put into storage.
