sawdust pellet machine

Nowadays there are mainly 3 types of solid biofuels in the world market: pellet shape, block shape and briquette shape. Block and briquette biofuels are generally used in large scale power plant, industrial boilers, etc; while pellet is usually applied by home users, small to medium scale power plant, heating boiler, and so on. Statistics show that pellets sell better than briquette or stick shape biofuels both domestically and abroad. Therefore, making biomass pellets is promising now.

sawdust pellets and briquettes

Among different kinds of biomass pellets, sawdust pellets are most widely used, not only because of their broad raw material origin, but also because of their high heat value (3700-5000kcal/kg, higher than other biomass pellets). As a result, most users are searching for Sawdust Pellet Machine online.

Sawdust pellet machine can process the waste sawdust, or powdery wood chip, shavings into cylindrical dense pellets. Pellet machine is the most important element in making sawdust pellets.

Sawdust has the features of poor adhesive force, low density and hard to form. Such features become the key points that we choose pellet machine for sawdust. You may have learnt that many sawdust pellet machines are derived from feed pellet machine, some manufacturers even use feed pellet machine to make sawdust pellets. The result may be, the pellets yield is low, and pellets quality are poor. Why this happens? We know that animal feed are usually made from soft materials like straw, grass, and grains, etc. But sawdust is much harder than these feed raw materials. Therefore, to process sawdust, the pellet machine shall produce much higher pressure than pressing animal feed.
