The following are three things are very significant for a pellet mill to function effectively.
<strong>The size of the Particles to be milled</strong>
Supplies meant for pelleting ought to be of a certain size. Shaving can cause blockages on the feed machineries and (chips and off cuts) larger bodies can also make a pellet machine to have mechanical breakdown. When pelleting reeds or straws, they foremost ought to be sliced to a point where they will flow freely and onto the hammer mill. A grinder (hammer mill) that has a screen, which is 6mm wide, can mill sawdust together with reeds or straw. Larger materials ought to be milled or granulated significantly to pass through a screen of 6mm.
<strong>Humidity content of unprocessed supplies</strong>
The humidity content of raw materials ought to be kept at temperatures that are lower than 16%
To have pellets those that are of a high quality, immense mechanical force ought to be used to in order to generate fastening of the unrefined materials., If the humidity content of the pellets materials is higher, then the poorer the quality of the pellets that will be refined. Additionally, when there is friction between the pellets heat is produced and if the temperature within the pellets exceeds the 90o C the moisture in the pellets will begin being gaseous. According to common knowledge, everyone knows that if the humidity content of unprocessed supplies reaches 16% the quality of the pellets become poorer.
<strong>Straw mixes/ sawdust/reeds</strong>
Even though it is possible to pellet almost anything via a single Die, the adding of pellet binders and water proscribes solidity. Diverse materials require differing points of adding things like pellet binders and water. Meaning, if the materials being milled constantly vary, it is impossible to control the final product that is produced by the pellet machine, which can either too hard or too soft. The same applies for wood sawdust and straw varieties or combinations of straws. However, if conflicting materials are given to the pellet mill for pelleting in an unswerving percentage and varied by a proportioner mill, the accompaniments can be synced accordingly, and pellets that are of a high quality shall be created in the end.
