what is the difference between flat die pellet mill and ring die


Flat die pellet mill and ring die pellet mill are the two types of pellets mills in the market. What are the differences of the two types of pellet mills? Let us learn on the features of flat die pellet mills and ring die pellet mills first.

Working principle of flat die pellet mill

The flat die pellet mill was the first pellet mill design at the turn of the 20th century based on flat dies. Generally, there are two types of flat die pellet mills in the market, the rotating die type and the rotating roller type. The former one has a stationary roller with the rotating die while the latter has a stationary die with a rotating roller. Adopting vertical principle, the raw materials drops down by the its own weight into the pelletizing chamber where they are compressed between the rollers and die to form pellets by going through the die holes.


Advantage and disadvantages of flat die pellet mills are as following:
Flat die pellet mills are small in size and light in weight because of the compacted structure design.Flat die pellet mils are easier to be cleaned and maintained and cheaper because of the design of portable rollers and die.flat die feed pellet mill are more convenient for you to monitor the process of pelletizing by watching the pelletizing chamber which make the experiment of indeterminate materials for raw materials expansion easier.
The disadvantages of pellet mills are they are not suitable for large scale pellet production. And also the gap between the roller and the die is tricky which should be adjustable according to the species of the raw materials especially the hardness of the raw materials.

All in all, the flat die pellet mills are usually used to process materials with large adhesive force for both fuel pellets and feed pellets in small scale and medium scale pellet production. They are known for the features, such as, reliable operation, greater mobility, low noise, low energy consumption and relatively low productivity, comparing with ring die pellet mills.


Working principle of ring die pellet mill


The ring die pellet mills were designed at around the 1930’s based on the design of ring die. The basic pelleting principle of the ring die pellet mill is a simple operation where feed mass is distributed over the inner surface of a rotating, perforated die ahead of each roll, which compress the feed mass and compress it into the die holes to form pellets.

Advantage and disadvantages of ring die pellet mills are as following:
Ring die pellet mills generate less wear and tear because the inner and outer edges of the rollers traverse the same distance.the ring die feed pellet mill sale are more energy efficient than that of the flat die pellet mills.One problem of the ring die pellet mills is side slip. Side slip is one undisputable and unavoidable fact on ring die pellet mill. It refers to having feed mash squeezed out sidewise from the nip between the roller and dies, which can be minimized, depending on the die configuration. One way to do this is to counter bore or drill larger hole in the two outer rows of the die so as to reduce the friction caused in the holes.

In one word, the ring die pellet mills also can be used to produce fuel and feed pellets. However, compared with the plat die pellet mills, the ring die pellet mills are well known for their large capacity for pellet production. They are featured as large capacity, with nice pellet forming shape and high density and high energy consumption.

Factors influencing Pellet Production with flat die pellet mill

Now days, small pellet mill are more and more popular as many families tend to make their own pellets instead of buying pellets at high price. 
1. First, you should be clear about what can be made into pellets, for fuel pellets as an example. Biomass fuel pellets can be made from many organic materials such as wood, paper, cardboard straw, alfalfa, corn husks and stalks, grass clippings, yard wastes and many forest & agricultural wastes. 
2. If the material are too wet, please dry them in the sun to moisture content of about 18%. 
3. For some materials of big size, you should crusher them first with a wood crusher, the best material size for making pellets is about 3-5mm.

Factors influencing Pellet Production
Pellet production in real life may come across many problems. How to improve the productivity of pellet press? And what’s the key point in operating pellet machines? Here are many factors affecting the pellet production in industrial production.
1. The Feeding Rate
There is an adjustment that is not well known to have an impact on pellet production,before pelleting,you need to use feed grinder to crush raw materials into powder, That is the rate of feed put into the pellet mil. In fact, adjustment on feed rate and maintaining a consistent feed rate can be the key factors to impact pellet production, even if the raw material is perfectly prepared.
2. Operating Temperatures
Temperature is a key requirement in pellet production. Unless a certain temperature is reached in the pellet mill, natural lignin will not melt. the flat die feed pellet mill is not possible to produce some biomass pellets. For example, wood pellets without sufficient heat. However, if the temperature is too high, this can damage the pellet mill and particular consumables such as the pellet mill dierollers, bearings and seals.
3. Clearance between roller and die 
Another adjustment that can impact heavily on how successfully the pellet mill operates is the distance between the roller and die template. The roller and die are wearing consumable parts, due to the abrasive nature and pressure of compression. The distance set between the roller and die can impact on how much energy the pellet mill uses, the quality of the pellet, pellet mill productivity and the amount of fines produced. Correctly ,setting up the die on a pellet mill will also increase the life of the roller and die, and reduce the cost of changing these consumable parts.
4. Die Template Rotation Speed 
The speeds at which the roller and die turn affect the complex relationships during pellet compression. Some materials require a greater time under compression, and therefore require a slower rotation speed.
5. Die Design and Material Used
Many different forms of metal alloy are used to produce pellet mill die templates. Different metal alloys have specific advantages. Using the correct alloy is critical to reduce wear and increase production. The type of metal used also affects the finish of the die holes. Our flat die pellet machines all adopt high alloy steel to make dies and rollers to lower consumption.
