In the past decade or so, there has been an intense need for alternative fuel. For the longest time fossil fuels have been increasingly expensive and their price have been unstable. In the past decade too, the whole world has been enlightened to the effects of burning fossil fuels to the environment. In a bid to save the planet from global warming and to save some money in the wide spread economic crisis, wood pellets have been a great alternative. Their production has also been supported by the fact that they can be produced locally from biomass materials and local wood. They help keep the carbon print at a minimum, create jobs locally and provide affordable fuel.
The pellet making process
One may think that buying a pellet mill
is all that is required. After all, the process seems very straightforward, you put in the biomass materials or wood in one end and the biomass pellets come out from the other end. This is however not true at all.
Benefits of having a biomass pellet machine
It is clear to most people that heating your home during winter is expensive when using electricity. Using raw wood does not seem efficient as wood does not burn completely. Pellets are however easy to store and burn completely.
Use your biomass waste
In the past, after mowing your lawn you throw away the grass because you do not have anything to do with it. Well, now you can make it save money for you buy being a source of heat.
Principles that should be employed when producing biomass pellets
Before compressing the wood into the pellet machine, it is important that the wood or biomass material you will be using be changed in size. Ensure too that the materials used are of consistent quality so that you can have pellets that are consistent in quality. Too large or too small materials will have an effect on the quality of pellets produced.
When producing pellets, you should know that the moisture content ought to be below 10%. Low moisture content allows the materials to burn efficiently and produces no smoke in the combustion process.
You should always look at the rate the pellets are fed into the Biomass pellet machine. How well the mill operates and whether the pellets are prepared perfectly are factors greatly affected by the rate at while the materials are fed into the machine.
In pellet production, temperature is a key requirement. Unless certain temperatures are reached during production the lignin of the pellets will not melt. When temperatures are too low, the pellets produced will be of very poor quality. When temperatures are too high, the pellets will be burnt and some parts of the machine could be damaged too.
The speeds at which the die and the roller turn affect the pellet compression phase. Some materials will require more compression and so a slower compression speed is to be used.
