Why are Fuel Pellets So Popular?
With the rising cost of natural gas and fuel oil, an increasing number of people choose fuel pellets to heat their houses. Fuel pellets produced by WHIR-230 flat die pellet mill are cylindrical, compressed biomass particles, a kind of new alternative burning fuels. Fuel pellets are gaining popularity for their convenience and environment protection. It is important to emphasize that fuel pellets can be easily produced from various biomass wastes. Our D-type flat die pellet mill is also suitable for processing various kinds of solid grains into feed pellets.
WHIR-230 Die-turned Making Pellet Machine
Die-turned pellet mill has the design of a rotating die and two stationary rollers, which comes earlier than the rotating roller type. The former is widely used for small farms or homes and has a rather lower price than the latter, for its easy manufacturing process. When the pellet machine is in operation, the frictional force between stationary rollers and rotating die will press the pulverized materials through the holes of flat die. Then a series of knives on the other side of the flat die cut the emerged pellets into the same pre-settled length.
Features of WHIR-230 D-type Pellet Mill
♤ Adopt one rotating die and two stationary rollers, high efficiency, uniform pellet size.
♤ Double rollers put equal force on the flat die to ensure uniform discharge.
♤ All bearings are sealed that effectively prevent from dust, extending bearing life span.
♤ Small, solid & compact size, reasonable structure and easy operation.
♤ The roller grooves are narrow inside and wide outside, the unique design can reduce the materials which are pushed inside the groove when pelletizing.
How to Recycle Tree Leaves into Heating Fuel?
Are you annoyed with processing the numerous fallen leaves in the fall or winter? Winter-fuel cost has long been expensive for most families, so how to get cheap and effective fuels? A D-type pellet mill can solve these two big headaches.
1. Raw material preparation: dried leaves. Rub bits of leaves between your hands to check the dryness. They should be crackly and crumble easily. If not, let them air dry until they are properly dried out.
2. Raw material grinding: rake up the fallen leaves into a pile. Chop the pile into small fragments by running a lawnmower over it several times. The pieces size should be less than 5mm. Put the chopped leaves in a large container.
3. Buy a pellet mill: start up the mill and allow it to run for a few minutes before making pellets so that the die inside heats up. The pellets will not hold together properly if you put the leaves in too early.
4. Making leaf pellets: feed the chopped leaves into the hopper of the mill by hands slowly, in case the leaves accumulate in the hopper. A few seconds later, the chopped leaves will discharge as compressed pellets.
5. Cool the pellets: allow the pellets to cool because they are quite warm as they exit from the chute. They are ready to be burned in a pellet stove after cooling.
6. Storage: store the pellets in a bag and place in a dry location if you will not use them immediately so that the leaf pellets do not absorb too much moisture.
