Pellet Mills

Pellet mills are machines used to produce pellets from various materials, such as wood, biomass and animal feed. They can be used to reduce numerous waste products such as plastics, paper or even farming by-products.  Pellets can be used for a variety of purposes, including heating, animal feed or as a raw material for other processes.

Make your own pellets

Pellet mills work by compressing the raw material into a small, dense pellet. The process involves feeding the raw material into a specialist mill, where it is ground up to a consistent mixture. The mixture is then forced through a die under high pressure and heat, which compresses loose material into a robust and compact pellet.

Types of pellet mills

There are two main types of pellet mills: flat die and ring die. Flat die pellet mills are generally smaller and more affordable, making them a popular choice for small-scale operations. Ring die pellet mills are larger and more efficient, making them a better choice for larger-scale operations and industry.

 

We categorise pellet production as follows:

 

Domestic pellet mills and lines – up to 100kg per hour

Semi profession mills and lines – up to 1000kg per hour

Commercial pellet mills and lines – 1000kg plus per hour

Why use pellet mills?

Pellets have a number of advantages over other forms of fuel, such as wood chips or logs. Pellets are easier to store and transport, as they take up less space and are less prone to moisture. They also burn more cleanly and efficiently, producing less ash and emissions than traditional fuels.  Pellets offer a cost-effective, efficient, and eco-friendly alternative to traditional fuels.

Pellets produced for animals provide a consistent, easy-to-digest source of nutrition for livestock and domestic animals.  Pelleted products are ‘shelf stable’ and will last for years unchanged.

Pelleting any by-product or waste you produce can add value.  It can be very expensive to dispose of by-products in their original form due to how bulky they might be.  It is also the case that most waste/by products are more valuable when they are condensed down.  Pelleted goods are less expensive and easier to transport and pelleting certain products can increase their shelf life and longevity.  

 

Pellet Mills can be used by a whole variety of institutions and for domestic use too.  We have experience in providing pellet mills to the following groups:

  • Commercial enterprises

  • Manufacturers

  • Farmers

  • Growers

  • Small business owners

  • Research and development institutions

  • Recycling and waste disposal companies

  • Academic institutions

  • Community projects
