The Mini Pellet Mill: For The Home, Lab or Small Workshop
If you are interested in producing pellets on a small scale, the Mini Pellet Mill is the most advanced small pellet mill on the market. Though small in size the Mini Pellet Mill has features seen only previously on professional large scale professional pellet mills.
Testing, Training and Research
Through replicating the compression process of commercial machines the Mini Pellet Mill can be used to conduct material tests and training before investment in a pellet plant. Many of our Mini Pellet Mill customers originally started discussing their need for a small scale pellet plant and decided to start their project with the Mini Pellet Mill.
Single Phase or Three Phase Supply
The pellet maker uses a 3kW electric motor which operates at full capacity on a three phase electrical supply. We can setup the machine to operate from a single phase supply where the motor runs at 2.2kW through a standard electrical socket. The press can be setup to operate from most international voltages and Hz, including US domestic 110V supplies.
Raw Material Hopper
Material is fed into the top of the machine, at the base of the hopper is a variable speed feed auger which moves the material into the conditioner below. Before the raw material is placed into the hopper it must be reduced to a suitable particle size. We now also offer a Mini Hammer Mill for final size reduction.
Raw Material Conditioner
Once the raw material drops in the conditioner there are two drip tanks which can hold water and vegetable oil as well as other liquids. Small amounts of these liquids can be added to the raw material to either increase or reduce compression within the pellet mill die. The conditioner then mixes the raw materials and liquids consistently while metering the material into the die chamber.
Raw Materials and Productivity
The Mini Pellet Mill can process many different raw materials from wood, straws, grasses, energy crops and feed materials. We also have clients processing other unique and niche materials.
For wood pellets and other biomass pellets to be used as a fuel between 20-30 kg/h can be produced. For feed pellets up to 100 kg/h is possible depending on the diameter of the pellets.
Ring Die Design With Twin Rollers
The Mini Pellet Mill features a ring die design which is used by most commercial pellet plants, the majority of small pellet presses use the inferior flat die design.
The design of the Mini Pellet Mill also enables good access to the pellet die compression chamber for cleaning and maintenance. Four bolts secure the door which can quickly be removed as seen in the video above.
The ring die design produces pellets of a higher quality more consistently. It features reduced roller and die wear compared to flat die pellet mills and its is also more energy efficient. Material enters the center of the die from the conditioner above. The two rollers then compress the material through the die and they are cut to size with the adjustable knife.
Typical Mini Pellet Mill Customers
There are many multinational companies, national research centres and universities using the press for research and testing purposes in labs. We also have many clients using the press to produce pellets for market research before investment in a pellet plant and to help secure funding. There are a wide range of circumstances where the Mini Pellet Mill is good starting point for a pellet project.
The Mini Pellet Mill is manufactured here in the UK and we export around the world.
