How to Maximize Productivity and Improve ROI of Sawdust Pellet Plant?

  • Ensure Quality of Sawdust

The quality of the raw material for biomass pellet manufacturing directly affects the quality of final produced pellets. Before setting up a wood pellet plant to produce sawdut pellets, it is important to ensure that there are stable, cheap and high quality sawdust, which is free of contaminants and has the right moisture content.

  • Improve Productivity of Sawdust Pellet Mills

Whether for small capacity sawdust pellet production line or industrial sawdust pellet plant, sawdust pellet machines are always the key for sawdust pellet production. Therefore, sawdust pelletizer machine should be bought from a reliable supplier and should be with advanced designs. In addition, it should be properly maintained and operated at the optimum speed and temperature to ensure maximum productivity.

  • Opitimize Sawdust Pelletizing Process - Upgrade Automation

Automation is a powerful tool that can be easily adopted to increase sawdust pellet production and further improve the ROI. Automated sawdust pellet manufacturing process can reduce labor costs and minimize human error. Automation can also increase throughput, reduce waste, and improve product quality, leading to increased productivity and improved ROI. For example, automated material handling systems can transport raw materials to the pellet mill, reducing manual labor, and improving safety.

In addition to aboved listed, there are also other steps that are also very practical to improve sawdust pellet production, including minimize downtime of sawdust pellet machine, improve energy efficiency of sawdust pellet plant. Anyway, maximized pellet production process can definitely help to increase profitability of every sawdust pellet production line. If you have other opinions, welcome to share with us!

⇒ Sawdust pellet production line, designed by GEMCO, can make pellets into different diameter and length and can effectively solve the coarse fiber difficult to pelletize. Wood logs, wood chips, sawdust, pine wood and other wood residues are great materials to make biomass pellets with our pellet production plant.

Production Process in Sawdust Pellet Production Plant

Sawdust pellet production line includes raw material feeding, crushing, drying, cyclone separation, pelletizing, cooling and packaging. To ensure the quality of finished pellets, each part of the sawdust pellet production line has strict quality control system. GEMCO have devoted in pellet production for ten years, have special technical teams, and excellent technical support.

Step 1: Raw Material Preparation

The first step in sawdust pellet production is the preparation of raw materials. The quality of the raw material directly affects the quality of the pellets. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that the sawdust is of high quality and has the right moisture content. The sawdust should be free of contaminants and should be properly dried to avoid clogging in the pelletizing process.

  • Crushing: Some raw materials are too large, which will cause poor pelletize effect or damage machine. Crusher can make block materials into sawdust or bran shape.
  • Drying: Biomass pelletizing has strict requirements on the moisture content of raw materials. After crushing, the saw dust will be sent to roller dryer. In the dryer machine, the sawdust can be dried to preset moisture content through hot air.
  • Cyclone separation: After drying, there will be a lot of moisture in the air during transmission. With cyclone separator, the moisture will be obstructed. There are two sets of cyclone separator in this sawdust pellet production line. After cooling the sawdust pellets, another separation is needed to separate the pellets and moisture.
Step 2: Sawdsut Pelletizing

The next stage is pelletizing, which involves compressing sawdust into pellets. There are two varieties of pellet mills: flat die and ring die pellet mills. The pellet mill with a flat die is appropriate for small-scale production, whereas the pellet mill with a ring die is excellent for large-scale production. To ensure maximum productivity, the pellet mill must be correctly maintained and operated at the optimal speed and temperature.

Sawdust pelletizer is the key equipment of the complete sawdust pellet production line. In this system, we adopt ring die pellet mill which is featured of stable operation. Over years of researching and practicing, GEMCO ring die pelletizer has been upgraded and patented. We have improved the ring die by adjust the technical parameters to prolong the service life of ring die and ensure no cracking in pelletizing. The capacity of 420 ring die pelletizing machine is 1-1.5t/h. You can also choose more than one die pellet machine parallel production to achieve the output you want.

Step 3: Cooling and Screening and Packaging

When discharging pellets from the pallet making machine, the temperature is around 80~90 ℃. The structure of pellet is relatively loose and easy to be broken. Through cooling system, the pellets will be cooled to room temperature and become tight and durable. Then, they can be packaged in bags. Except cooling fan, the cooling system is also designed with cyclone separator which is used to separate powder from the pellets and send the powder back to the front pelletizing procedure. Finally, you have got the final sawdust pellets with high quality. Package the pellets and send them to finished products storehouse, or directly transport the pellets into a storage silo.

To get the most out of your investment in sawdust pellet production line, it is essential to have optimized sawdust pellet production process and efficient sawdust pellet mill.
