Bamboo Pellet Mill

Bamboo is a fast growing fibrous plant grown in abundance in the world. It is a versatile material finding usage in structural, construction, wood substitute, composite and energy production. With the wide application of bamboo, there are ample bamboo residues available which are usually treated as useless wastes. How to add the value of these residues? Here bamboo pellet mill should be recommended which is specially designed for compressing bamboo residues into pellets! The value of bamboo residue can be further added by pelletizing to broaden their fields of application. With bamboo pellet machine, it is convenient and easy to pelletize bamboo residues!

Bamboo pellet mill is also named bamboo pellet making mill and bamboo pelletizing machine. The machine in flat die design can compress bamboo material into bamboo pellet fuel. Bamboo pelletizing machine is very adaptable, easy to operate and maintain. The core units-rolls and dies are all made of high alloy steel to ensure long life service. With its flexible and movable feature, you can easily carry it without much effort and make pellets wherever you want. For people who want to make bamboo pellets domestically or who would like to start up a small-scale pellet plant, the flat die bamboo pelletizer is the wise choice. Bamboo pellet making machine is increasingly popular in the world market and effectively stimulates the development of value-added bamboo pellet production.

Bamboo Superiority to Produce Pellets
Bamboo is a kind of biomass materials and had great potential as a bio-energy resource of the future. The composition elements of bamboo is suitable for pressing bamboo pellets. It is composted of hemicelluloses, cellulose and lignin, just like the composition of the wood. Its ash content is relatively low compared with that of agricultural materials such as, grasses and straw, etc. The properties of bamboo make it better as biomass fuel than agricultural residues. Moreover due to the high growth rate and easy process, good mechanical properties, such as: low costs, multitude applications, bamboo are usually compressed into pellets for heating.

Dry Bamboo around 13% 16 MJ/kg around 15%

Bamboo Pellet
Bamboo pellet compressed from bamboo materials is cylindrical in the shape, usually with diameter of 6-12mm. It is even granular, slick, flammable as well as environmentally friendly. Moreover, densification into pellets could reduce bamboo material wastage and improve ease of transporting and storage. All properties of bamboo pellets could meet the requirement of Pellets Fuel Institute Standard Specification for Residential/Commercial Densified and the gross calorific value could also meet the minimum requirement for commercial pellets of DIN 51731 (>17500J/g), respectively. Bamboo pellets with high calorific value are generally proper fuel to replace oil, coal and other common energy and have a wide range of application like heating, cooking and industrial steam furnace.

Pelletizing process of bamboo pellets

Crushing - Drying - Pelleting - Cooling - Packing/Bagging
(1) Crushing system
When bamboo material is very thick with long length, we need use the Chipper to chip them into small pieces, then crush the small pieces into powder with diameter less 3mm by Hammer Mill.
(2) Drying System
The moisture content of bamboo powder for pelletizing is around 13%. Dry bamboo is OK for pelletizing without drying. If moisture content the bamboo powder is higher, dry them in the sun or by dryer machine.
(3) Pelleting System
Convey materials into flat die bamboo pelletizer to be compressed into pellets. The key parts of bamboo pellet making machine are made of alloy steel to be very strong and malleable. Die is made of stainless steel. Besides bamboo pellet production, pellet machine is widely used in the granulation of wood, straw, other biomass sources.
(4) Cooling & Bagging System
After the pelletizing process, the temperature and the moisture content of bamboo pellets are high. So cool down pellets and packing them. There is also packing machine for pellet package.
