Pellet Binders and Lubricants - Free Guide

This guide is going into a more specific area of making pellets compared to the Beginners Guide To Pellet Production. In this PDF you will learn about what Pellet Binders and Lubricants are currently on the market today, and when and where to use them. This particular aspect ofPellet Binders Lubricants making pellets has been very confusing for many people. They would read forums and comments of people who have purchased small flat die Chinese pellet mills making comments like "You can only make wood pellets with this machine if you use a binder!" The types of materials they would use as a binder would be distillers grain, Soya beans and rape cake from pressing oil seed rape. Basically any oily by product from seed pressing they were mixing with the wood to make it flow through the die. The problem is for these materials to have any effect have to be added in significant volumes, I read one post once that stated you need to add "1/3 Soya beans to the sawdust" This produces a pellet with two issues, one it will have a poor density and its combustion will also be effected by the high percentage of soybeans. The other effect from people making these comments was binders when it came to producing wood pellets and other fuel pellets became a dirty word. However the reality is that these materials are not proper binder materials, and in some cases professional binders can be quite useful. However instead of 33% inclusion as with Soya beans you are adding 1-2% and they do not effect how the pellets burn. The next guide is Moisture Control, followed by Die Thickness and finally Particle Size. We hope you enjoy these free guides on making pellets. Comments and questions below, thanks.
