The peanut shell pellet mill is a biomass pellet fuel forming machine that uses agricultural waste such as rice husks, peanut shells, and peanut shells as raw materials. The peanut shell granulator is actually a biomass pellet machine. Peanut shell consists of plenty of cellulose and lignin, very suitable for making peanut shellet pellets. Due to the small size and the low moisture content, the peanut shell of this customer can enter the peanut shell pellet mill machine directly. If the raw material is not as small as the peanut shell, it should be crushed into small pieces then to pellet. At the same time, the moisture content of raw materials had better be kept within 15%. The peanut shell pelletizer can turn peanut shells into Bao, pressed into fuel pellets.

Peanut Shells Processing Procedures

Usually, the peanut shell should be ground into tiny pieces so as to go into the pellet mill die holes.

Then you should pay attention to the moisture content in the peanut shells. Generally speaking, you should dry the peanut shells by a drying machine to the proper moisture content which meets the processing requirement of peanut shell pellet mill.

The next is the most important step --- pelletizing. In this step, you need use the peanut shell pellet mill. Whether the pellets are formed or not, the peanut shell pellet mill plays an important role. There are several factors to affect the pellets forming including compression ratio, the clearance between the roller and die, temperature, pressure, etc. So a good peanut shell pellet is so important.

After the pellets coming out of the peanut shell pellet mill, you can decide whether you should use the cooling machine and packing machine or not according to your production scale and the pellets usages.

Characteristic Of Peanut Shell Pellet

1. Shape. The shape of peanut shell pellet is cylindrical. their surface is smooth with a slight sheen. According to different requirement, could produce different size pellet.

2. Heat value. Peanut shell pellet has large densities, so the combustion efficiency is high, when burning, the center temperature can reach more than 1100 degree centigrade, heat value can reach 3700 ~ 4000 kcal / kg, ash content less than 8%. Compare with coal and oil, the peanut shell also has its own unique advantages.

3. High firepower and less ash. Because of high pressure molding and larger density, the peanut shell pellet is heat- resistant with high firepower and less ash. During burning, the pellet can keep shape, no distortion and fall apart. The pellet fuel ash can as the potash fertilizer to return into soil.

4. Clean and environmental protection. Use the peanut shell pellet fuel can reduce environment pollution. When burning the pellet, ash discharge concentration is less than 40 mg / m3. So use the pellet fuel can improve air quality and avoid greenhouse effect.

5. Convenient transportation and easy to store. The peanut shell pellet has small volume, so it is easy to store and transport, that can reduce transport cost.

6. Peanut shell or hull are easy to get, which will lower the production cost of peanut shell pellet, providing a big profit margins.

7. Peanut pellet fuel is a green biomass energy will lower emission and is environment-friendly.

8. Peanut shell or hull pellets can be used widely either in civil heating and daily energy supplying or in industr.
