Sawdust is a most common material for making biomass pellets. If your material are wood logs, branches, barks etc, you can first shred them into sawdust. The suitable material size for making pellets is about 3-5 mm, the resulting moisture can be about 12%-24%, so you need to dry them with a dryer to the requirement.


A reasonable pellet plant design can save customer space and investment, we can ensure this. In this wood pellet plant, we equip ring die wood pellet mill which adopts gear-driven system facilitating operators to handle it and ensuring personnel safety. The whole production line controlled by PLC system.
