to turn rice straw into biomass pellets with a straw pellet mill

To turn rice straw to biomass pellets, a rice straw pellet mill will be necessary. Analyzing the characters of rice straw, we developed a series of rice straw pellet mill. Each of them is small, portable, efficient, and productive for own use.

the straw pellet mill is mainly used to process rice straw into rice straw pellets as fuel for heating and cooking at home. Generally rice straw is very common all over the world, especially in the countryside. It is good application for the pellet mill to process straw bimass due to rich raw materials resources in the farm. Along with the development of pelletizing, rice straw pellet mill has becoming the most important save-energy machine in the market increasingly.

Benefits of Straw Pellets as Biomass Fuel
Straw pellets are characterized by high calorific value, low moisture content, minimal amounts of ash content, long burning time and environmental protection. Straw biomass pellets can be used as an alternative heating fuel to oil and gas when burnt in a suitable biomass boiler. As a biomass fuel, straw pellets contain a relatively high amount of volatile ingredients, which make this kind of fuel burn very effectively. The calorific value of straw pellets are about 18-19 MJ/kg, the ash content is lower than 3% and the moisture content are lower than 10%, which are suitable for burning.

Straws are widely used in paper making, ethanol production or used as feed for animals in the past, until recently, the new way of processing these straws has caught people’s attention-that is pelletizing. While with the development of pellet machine, straws are available to use as raw materials of pellet making machine.

Wide Application of Straw Pellets

In addition to used as fuel pellets, straw pellets can also be used as horse bedding and small pet bedding. Straws has been used as horse bedding for centuries. Until recently, the development of pelletizing industry has made it possible to use straw pellets which is more suitable for bedding in the stall. Since straw pellets are pure, natural products without additives and of high hygienic, they are the best products for animal bedding.
Straw pellets can be used as animal feed. And compared with straws, the straw pellets are easier to be stored and can be stored for a longer time.

improved biomass pellet making machine can process wood pellets and feed pellets

With the fast development of making animal feed pellets industry and biomass energy saving project, this kind of Flat Die Pellet making machine become very popular. Since the biomass pellet making machine not only can process the feed pellets for animals, such as feed for fish, chicken, pig etc, but also can process the waste biomass material to wood pellet. This biomass pellet making machine has a history for more than 10 years. At the beginning, the pellet mill is mainly used to process the pellet as feed pellets. But recent years, people change the pellet making machine through improving the quality of main parts in the biomass pellet making machine, in order to make it to process the waste biomass material such as sawdust, straw etc. The final wood pellet can be burned as green fuel in pellet stove or boiler.

What are the benefits of biomass pellets and why we make it?

making biomass is a way to make use of biomass residues that would otherwise go to waste, and replace the use of wood and charcoal and fossil fuels, thus cutting greenhouse gas emissions. Briquettes are easier to store and use for cooking than wood, because they are uniform in size and composition. They are much cleaner to handle than charcoal or coal, and produce less local air pollution.

There are some concerns about using field waste for briquettes, because it is sometimes also valuable as a soil improver. However, residues like sawdust and rice husk have limited agricultural use and can be a fire hazard, as can pine needles.

introduction and usage of wood pellets made by wood pelletzing machine

wood pellets advantages for burning

Wood pellets produced by high quality wood pellet machine are an natural, affordable, and eco-friendly way to heat your house. Wood pellets fuels emit less ashes and harmful emissions. Also, the carbon dioxide which is released during the combustion of wood pellets is being used by the growing plants. This renewable, economical and sustainable fuel source has gained interest all over the world!

Wood pellet made by pellet mill patio heaters are an example of an ingenious application of four basic scientific phenomena. Air, fire, fuel, and gravity are all that are needed to generate thousands of eco-friendly BTU’s. The wood pellet patio heater is an exceptionally unique product that is simple to operate, and because it doesn’t rely on electricity, motors or any moving parts, it is both a reliable and practical product.

raw materials making wood pellets

Wood pellets are made from sustainably sourced dry sawdust which is compressed under high pressure. This combination of low moisture content, typically 8-10%, and high density means that wood pellets are a particularly high energy fuel: even higher than wood in its natural form.

Their high density also means that wood pellets require less storage space than wood chip and are particularly suited to smaller biomass boilers.

Wood pellets are only as good as the standard to which they are manufactured. Poor quality pellets can disintegrate into sawdust and cause problems in your biomass boiler or fuel store and may have lower energy density and higher levels of contaminants.

wood pellets another usage

Made from the highest quality raw materials, our animal bedding pellets are economical and all natural. You’ll find only clean, 100% soft wood in Premium Horse Bedding – so your horses will enjoy fluffy, absorbent, long-lasting bedding.

some concerns about pelleting feed and raw materials chosen

There are some concerns about feeding a pelleted diet made by a pellet mill to pigs, specifically because corn is ground finer than it would be for mash feed. Pelleted diets ground to 450 microns or so can produce gastric ulcers in some pigs, Gaines says.
Be careful about using pelleted feed in health-challenged situations, adds Matt Kocher, associate director of Nutrition Technical Services for The Maschhoffs. “If you have a pig that is health-challenged and you are using a finer particle size in pelleted feed, there is a chance of increased incidence of ulcers. Furthermore, certain genetic lines may be more susceptible to gastric ulcers due to finer particle size,” he points out.
A second potential drawback is the need for increased feeder management with pelleted feed, says Gaines. Fines will occur as pellets travel through the mill and farm feed pellet making machine. As a result, it takes more focused daily feeder adjustments to avoid excessive feeder pan coverage and potentially more feed wastage, he warns.


Every feed production machine produces a broad range of products. These can include several different diets for a single species  or several different diets for many species . Broad product assortments require a vast number of available ingredients to meet the nutritional requirements of each specific diet. Since the number of possible ingredient combinations is endless and selection is normally based on least-cost formulations, demographics, or nutritional value, the formulations may change frequently. Therefore, proper attention must be taken to ensure high quality pellets are consistently produced. Ingredient grind (mean particle size) and formulation play a major role in producing high quality pellets.

what is wood pellets and what can wood pellets do?

Wood pellets are generally produced by a pellet mill out of wood sawdust waste such as sawdust and shavings. The raw material is dried, mechanically fractioned to size and thereafter extruded under intense pressure into pellets. In the pelleting process the raw material is densified approximately 3.7 times. The product produced in Western Canada has a bulk density of approximately 705 kg/m3 and a bulk stowage factor of approximately 52-56 ft3/metric tonne.
Wood pellets are primarily used as a fuel and have a calorific (heat) value of around 5 MWh/metric tonne (18 GJ/metric tonne) which is approximately half that of fuel oil. In North America the wood pellets are used in wood pellet stoves and fire places. In Europe, particularly Scandinavia, the bulk of the pellets produced by wood pellet machine are used as fuel in central heating stations supplying heat for entire communities or even entire cities.sometimes, the family would like to produce wood pellets by pellet mill for home use

Wood sawdust pellets can absorb moisture from the air if stored in a damp environment, and this can lead to them becoming crumbly and breaking down to sawdust. The mechanical durability of wood pellets is important, especially if they are to be subjected to more than a few handling steps. This can particularly be the case with pellets imported from overseas which may have been subject to many handling processes during loading and unloading.

Pellets that break up into sawdust during handling or storage can cause difficulties in fuel feeds and also the much lower effective fuel energy density of sawdust may require the fuel feed to be recalibrated, or cause the combustion system to trip out.

about pelleted feed 

Whether hay or grain, the next step is pushing the feed (at relatively low pressure) through a die--which is basically a metal plate with holes in it. The size of the holes determines the size of the resulting pellet, and many manufacturers attempt to mark their products with a pellet of distinct dimensions--anywhere from about the thickness of a pencil to about the thickness of your thumb. (Unlike dogs and cats, who can become so accustomed to a certain shape of kibble that they refuse to eat anything else, regardless of the taste, horses don't seem to attach much importance to the size or shape of a pelleted feed, as long as it's chewable. Pelleted products designed for foals sometimes are finer than those made for adult horses.)

For straw and other materials contain cellulose and lignin, the latter is structure monomer and belongs to phenyl propane type polymer compound. the feed pellet eq can enhance cell walls, and agglutinate cellulose. The lignin is amorphous and insoluble in any solvent at normal temperature, and it has no melting point but softening point. When it reaches a certain temperature,lignin soften and the adhesive force increases. Then under certain pressure, it makes cellulose molecule group misalign, deform, extend, and internally adjacent biomass particles mutually mesh, regroup and press briquettes.
