Wood Pellets For Fuel And Animal Bedding
The most common type of pellets our enquires relate to are wood pellets. The pellet heating market has grown considerably in the US and Europe over the last decade, therefore there is a growing wood pellet demand. However not all wood pellets are created equal. The grade of raw material and the type of pellet mill you use can make a significant difference to the value of the pellets you produce.
Biomass Materials Including Grasses and Energy Crops
While the wood pellet is firmly the market leader in the fuel pellet industry there are other materials which can be used in the pellet press to produce fuel pellets. Some biomass materials are more suitable than others due to potential issues with high ash contents, clinker formations and corrosion damage to pellet stoves or boilers. Pellet mill performances changes depending on the material used.
The Pellet Mills and Plants We Offer
As stated above we focus on small scale equipment, the smallest of which is our Mini Pellet Mill and Mini Hammer Mill. This equipment is often used as a starting point for research and commercial projects before investment in a pellet plant. This pellet mill can be setup to operate from a domestic single phase electrical supply or a three phase supply. The machine uses a ring die instead of a flat die mill design, the press is designed and made here in the UK.
The pellet plants we offer produce 250 kg/h of fuel pellets (wood or biomass) with a single mill and can be scaled up with a multiple press plant producing up to 2,000 kg/h. For other materials such as feed pellets which are produced to a lower density the plants can produce considerably more. The pellet plants are setup to each individual customers requirements depending on available space, power etc.
