My name is Christopher Scott, I run PelHeat.com and you can learn more about me on the About page. Over the years I’ve gathered an extensive knowledge of the pellet production process and equipment used to appreciate why making quality pellets is often a trial and error process. With the PelHeat Guide and Consultation Service I can provide assistance so you do not have to go through as much trial and error with your project.
As an introduction to the full PelHeat Guide and consultation service I have produced a series of five free guides. Either click the text/image below for each guide below or right click and ‘save target as’ or ‘save link as’ to download them.
This first free guide provides some background into our work here at PelHeat and our experiences in making pellets. It then provides some insight in to the various challenges that can take place when making pellets, and the effects they have on the process.
Learn about the different materials that can be used as pellet binders and lubricants along with the various pros and cons. Many wood and biomass materials can made used in the pellet mill without the need for a binder, however binders can aid the process in most cases.
Moisture is a key requirement within the pellet production process, however how much moisture is too much for the pellet mill? There are also factors such as meeting the required quality guidelines such as ENplus where a certain percentage of moisture is a set maxium in the finished wood pellets.
The die is the most important component of the pellet press, the depth of the die has significant affects on the performance of the pellet machine and the quality of the pellets produced. There needs to be a balance between pellet density and pellet mill productivity which the design of the pellet press die is responsible for.
Material needs to be reduced in size before it can be used within the pellet mill, however many people are unaware how the size of particles really affects the process. Particles which are too large can lead to blockages in the pellet machine, however particles which are too small can also create issues with roller traction.
Once you have read the five free guides you maybe interested in our full guide and one week PelHeat consultation service ticket. Through this service I will discus your project with you and try to address any questions you have.
