How to make wood pellets

  1. wood pelletsMake sure the wood raw material is in proper size: 2-5mm in diameter. If raw material is sawdust, it does not need to be pulverized. If raw material is wood chip, wood shaving or larger size, it shall be pulverized by crusher/hammer mill into 2-5mm diameter.
  2. Dry the wood powder/sawdust: wood raw material or sawdust usually contains too much moisture, which is much higher than the required pelletizing moisture content: 8-12%. As a result, they need to be dried by the dryer before pelletizing.
  3. Feed the wood sawdust into wood pellet machine: the dried sawdust will be fed by the screw feeder into the pellet making machine hopper. Then sawdust enters the pelletizing chamber. Under the pressure of rotating roller, sawdust is extruded through the stationary die holes, and pellets are formed and cut by pellet cutter at the outlet.
  4. Cool the pellets: after pelletizing, wood pellets are very hot. Under such circumstance, they can be cooled by air, or a pellet cooler. After cooling, the wood pellets can be put into use or packed for sale and storage.
