  • Sawdust Collection

Transport sawdust or other kinds of biomass materials to your factory. Locate the plant near the source of raw materials, so that to minimize the transportation cost.

  • Crushing (skip this procedure if your materials is sawdust)

If your raw materials are in big size such as wood chips, crushing machine or hammer mill is required to crush them into small pieces (less than 6mm).

  • Drying

Moisture content should be controlled between 10% and 15%, the situation for making best wood pellets. It is necessary to test the moisture content first before feeding the saw dust into pellet mill. Too dry, the pressed pellets will be loose and easy to break. Too wet, will increase the difficulty of pelletizing. Dry the sawdust in sun or buy a dryer machine to reduced water content. Spay a litter water to increase water content.

  • Screening and de-ironing

It is a key process for making wood pellets. It is set to remove stones, metals, and other hard impurities mixed in sawdust materials, or it may cause serious wearing of the pellet mill. Screening machine and magnetic separation machine is generally adopted.

  • Mixing (optional)

When processing some kind of biomass materials with low lignin content, binders are needed to make better pellets.

  • Pelleting

Process well prepared sawdust in pellet mill to make wood pellets. The pellets should be hard and shiny. If too soft, the problem might be sawdust too wet. If crumbly, the problem might be sawdust too dry. You need to try 1~2 times to master the optimal moisture content. You maybe also interested in sawdust briquette machine for making sawdust briquettes.

  • Cooling and Packaging / Bagging

Cool the produced wood pellets to room temperature and pack them in bags for sale.
